Cutting the Fabric
The heart is a good practice piece for freezer paper appliqué.
It has an inner corner, a point and curved edges. Trace or
draw a heart on to the dull side of freezer paper.
Lay the freezer paper heart shiny side down on the right
side of the fabric chosen for the heart as show in Figure
1. Press the freezer paper with a hot dry iron. A brief pressing
of two or three seconds with the iron is all that is required
to cause the freezer paper to adhere to the fabric.
Cut the fabric about 3/16 larger than the freezer
paper heart. Separate the fabric heart from the freezer paper.
