One budget white t-shirt. One Sprout Skipping Boy appliqued on = Super cool t-shirt!
Here's a close-up of my applique'ing. I tried with a darning foot but with the lowered feed dogs there was shuddering and shaking, and NOT the good kind ;)
Least to say I wasn't tempted to continue with this method.
So I reverted to what I know how to do. Which is to use my applique foot (clear plastic foot) and use the first of my buttonhole stitches to do a so-called satin-stitch.
Feed dogs were up and it was fairly easy to manoeuvre around the curves.
This was the end product. One happy skipping boy.
Note: I did use Lite Steam-A-Seam in between the boy and the t-shirt to keep it in place.
Now... what else can I get away with while the kids are watching t.v?
33weeks and trust me, I'm counting...
