Dryer Sheet Applique is one of the better applique techniques for appliquéing small leaves and flowers.
On the back of your leaf fabric, draw your leaf.
Place a “used” dryer sheet (there is too much fabric softener and scent in an unused one, making it stiffer) right sides together with the leaf fabric and sew along your drawn line.
The stitch you use to secure your appliqué piece is like a blind hem stitch, but much smaller than you would use for hemming your trousers.
Bring your needle up through the background fabric and just barely catch the folded edge of your appliqué, then straight down or slightly underneath the appliqué and up through the edge again.
