Another way to create a template is to trace directly from a design you like, directly onto the freezer paper. Then, iron the freezer paper, shiny side down onto a fabric you want to create the applique. Cut out the fabric, leaving about 1/4″ seam allowance around the applique. Fold the seam allowance over the freezer paper template, and sew the applique onto the surface of whatever you want the applique to be on, leaving a hole through which you can take out the freezer paper through. Then, sew the hole closed.
