  1. Sew your applique without putting fabric inside the applique.
  2. Use regular crayons to color in the areas to you desired color.
  3. Find a scrap piece of fabric, place on top of your design and iron it. This adds vibrancy to the design.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to make the colors stand out even more.

The more you repeat steps 2 and 3 the darker the colors will be. Try different combinations of colors and layers to see how creative you can be.
