    Cross stitch all of the words on, then take it out of the hoop, remove the appliques you had pinned on, and gently wash the fabric lying it flat to dry when you're done.

    Then, once it's dry, iron on the appliques. You can sew them on if you prefer because heat does strange things to the fabric, but I sort of spot ironed them.

    When they're on put your project back in the hoop and cut off all of the excess fabric.
