First I cut all of the pieces needed to create my hedgehog for Olivia's wall. I used my blade on 3 and my pressure on 3. When I finished cutting all the pieces the first thing I did was remove the excess vinyl leaving only the image I am going to put on the wall.
Begin by choosing the base piece of your image. Here I used the piece that I will add the layers to one by one. Lay the piece out still attached to the vinyl backing.
I choose the feet to add to the base. I take those pieces off the backing and place them on the base as I would if I were paper piecing.
Keep adding the layers, here the eyes, pink of the ears and nose, he is beginning to take life! I think in my final image I used my circle punch to cut out dark dots to put in the center of those light colored eyes. I don't know why that picture wasn't added.
Once you get to this spot you just pull the entire item from the backing. At this point the piece is a bit easier to manipulate I guess because it has more body to it from the added layers. Just place it on your wall where you would like it to be. smooth out all the hair bubbles with either a dull side of your cell phone or a Popsicle stick. I hope you will try this out because it truly is easier than I would have imagined.
If you have any questions or comments don't hesitate to do that. I may not know the entire answer but I will attempt to find it for you
