I wanted to add one more thing - I made a discovery that really helps when using fusible web. I have used Heat and Bond Lite mainly because it is easy to remove the backing paper, but it is considerably stiffer than Pellon Wonder Under. The Pellon gives me fits trying to get the bqcking off - especially small pieces. Today I was using it and the pieces I was working on were larger. Out of the blue, I took a sharp pin and scratched a couple of lines across the paper on the cutout piece. I was able to easily pick the backing up and pull the piece off the applique. It sometimes came off in two pieces, but at least I wasn't geting any raggedy edges. Worked well on the smaller circles for the eyes,. also. You may already do it this way, but, if not, give it a try when you are fusing. I am giving myself an "attagirl, Carol" for that one.
I think it's time for some Halloween words--
