Applique is so fun…but sometimes I find that I jump the gun, and off I run to the printer only to find that the applique templates are backwards!!!!

What in the world?  Now what?

Figuring out how to print it correctly is very helpful…. especially when you are appliqueing words.

It will save you a lot of time tracing.  A lot of time!

3)  Look in the preview window to make sure it has been reversed

4)  Print

If you don’t have the option or care to look for it, you can turn the printed image over, trace on the backside of the paper and then use this for the template for applique.

*your printer might be a bit different from mine.  Check the properties tab/paper then look for mirror image option.
