With laser-cut appliqué, all your appliqué shapes are precut by a laser-cutting machine and pre-fused with a fusible webbing. All you need to do is peel off the backing, iron it to your fabric, and stitch around the edges. To try out a simple laser-cut appliqué, you can purchase some of our precut and pre-fused Shabby Shapes.
