Crap I've Made. Don't be fooled by the blog name, there is a lot of inspiration over there. Check it out!
It's true, I have an embroidery machine and most times if I'm going to do an applique I find one that my machine will stitch out. Sometimes though, it is even easier to do one on the regular machine, and quicker too!
Knit fabrics, otherwise known as the fabrics that are used in T shirts etc. are the easiest fabrics to applique. They don't fray so there is no need to finish your edges. Read on, I'll show you how easy it is. I think this applique probably took 15 mins from start to finish.
What you will need:
- Knit scraps
- Medium weight fusible interfacing
- Fabric adhesive or glue stick
- Scissors and a marker
- T shirt or something to put your applique on
You could add your child's name or initial to a shirt or blanket, trace a picture of their favorite cartoon character... there are so many things you can do! Let me know what you come up with! :)
The shirt pattern I used here is Carla C's All The Rage Raglan Pattern which can be purchased at youcanmakethis.com.
