Reduce background showing through the appliqué pieces

·        With some fabrics, the background will show through even after the fusible web has been added. For example in The Magic Hat pattern the background may show through the snow folk if the background fabric is dark and the snow folk fabric is light. 
·        One way to eliminate this is to use a light weight fusible interface.  Fuse the interface first to the appliqué piece and then add the fusible web.
·        Another way to prevent the background from showing is to fuse a second piece of the appliqué fabric to the first piece of the same fabric.  This will make the piece a little stiffer but it should eliminate the background fabric from showing through the piece/s.
