"Jasmine" -- WIP fused hand-dyes
After all the big pieces are in place, it's time to do the little pieces. After tacking most of it together with the edge of a hot iron, the large pieces of freezer paper can be carefully removed using the tweezers. Then the tiny pieces can be placed using the tracing paper as a guide. I laid the tracing paper over as a guide and carefully set them on the appliqué. It's best to remove the freezer paper before placing them -- I left it on for the pictures, but it's really hard to remove it without pulling up the lightly fused bits. Also, tracing paper doesn't work as well as parchment under the iron -- I think it has a lower "smoke point" (don't ask me how I know...). I may try using a piece of parchment for tracing next time.
Next is the hard part -- choosing the background.
