This is the second of two tees I personalised for my little boy.
I love applique for two reasons. First it uses up the cute scraps of fabric I hoard. Second, I can make something unique my kids (or anyone) love.
I then go to pinterest for shapes to cut. I knew I wanted a rocket, but couldn’t get it clear in my head, so worked from the image. Great for when you’re having a mental block! (I can’t now find the source of the image, if it’s you drop me an email!)
If you’re using a jersey or t-shirt fabric that doesn’t fray you can sew with a straight line like I’ve done above, if not seriously use a zig-zag stitch around the outside. I learnt my lesson and need to now re-sew, but have since done this kind of fabric again with the zig-zag and it holds up fine!
I promise this is an easy project if your follow the stitch/fabric rule! :) Perfect way to make a top, bag or anything unique!
If you missed it the here’s the reverse applique tute.
Hope you’re enjoying your winter, I know we are!
