When I do machine applique embroidery, I usually do a 3-step process. I hoop the applique fabric first and stitch the outline. I cut that out very close to stitch line. Don't throw the stabilizer away. You will use it again.
I make the outline on the main hoop.
Then I use the left-over stabilizer to cover the applique work except where I want to spray adhesive. The stabilizer will keep the rest of the ff from getting sprayed with the adhesive.
After spraying, I Line up basting stitches.
I use the basted outline a third time to anchor down the design.

Merry, I bought several cans in an ebay auction. The Stick-it works well for applique.
