Seems like I can never start a large project and go all the way without picking up some little projects along the way. Sort of a distraction as well as instant gratification. I finally taught myself to machine applique earlier this year. I look for things to applique. I heart applique. I look at things in my house and wonder how they would look with a flower, bird or dog applique. In order to save what I do have of decor, I asked my friend Lisa to bring me a tee shirt for her daughter Rebecca that I could, of course, applique. She brought me 2. Miss Rebecca loves dogs and they have a huskie mix. More huskie than mix. Lisa got her inexpensive (not cheap) tee shirts from Michael’s craft store. I also happened to have small white tee from Target. A bargain at $1.50 on the clearance rack. I can’t believe how well they washed. The little Target tee was too small for some of the applique’s I have on hand so I used a cookie cutter.
How can you not get Big Satisfaction from these? Scraps of fabric and very little effort.
