Cutting Fusible Applique with Scissors

The last few days I have been talking about my Delirious challenge and how to make it look the way I want it to look. I finally figured out the stitching part, but cutting was very tedious. I ran across this video on Youtube via Facebook and am linking to it here. Stacy Michell does Hawaiian applique, but the principles are the same. Folding this into quarters just like you would a snowflake is perfect. And it really works for the rings on the Delirious project. Cutting is so quick and easy, I couldn’t believe it. Who would ever think about stapling their fabric. I did it and it really works. The staple remover she uses can be found at any office supply. Maybe I’ll make more than a couple of orphan blocks.

Here’s the video.
