Default Making Tie Appliques?

I have a table that is set up at a local Market, which operates every day (except for Sunday). I make various clips, headbands, mitten clips, soother clips and many items out of felt. I am wanting to have more "boyish" items to add to my table and want to start making tie appliques.

I have bought some cute fabric, heat 'n bond and have a template that I made. I am wanting just to sell the appliques, not have them on shirts or onesies. I'm wondering how I go about doing this. Once I have the tie cut, do I just iron on the heat 'n bond to the fabric? How do I do this w/o it being adhered to the ironing board? I just seem kind of lost with it right now. Maybe it is just too late and I should go to bed and stop working on projects. LOL

Heat and Bond has a paper backing on it to protect it. Keep it on. Cut the heat and bond to fit the amount of fabric you will be using. If you are going to do more than one tie out of that fabric be sure you have ironed on enough heat and bond for all of the ties. Then iron the heat and bond onto the fabric. Draw your pattern for the ties onto the paper backing and then cut them out. Do not pull the paper backing off until you are ready to iron the cutout onto the garmet. If the paper won't stay on the cutout you may have to pin it on. It will stay neater if the backing is on it but it is not ruined if it comes off.

Thank you so much! I obviously bought the wrong type of Heat and Bond b/c mine doesn't have a paper backing. It makes so much more sense now. LOL
