Wonder Under applique



I needed a few springy things for my booth, and I decided to get out some fabric and have some fun!





Target had some little dishtowels on extreme markdown, so I bought four sets.  I decided to put little birds on them with colorful fabric, Wonder Under and some black thread.


I cut a pattern out of a postcard, then traced it onto Wonder Under, which was then ironed onto the back of the bright fabric.  Then I cut on the lines and peeled off the backing and ironed the pieces onto the towel. 


I used my machine to stitch around the outline of the bird and eye and make the legs.  I hand stitched around the beak.

This is a quick and easy way to dress up a towel, and even if you can't sew, double-sided fusible web is a fun thing to play with!

Hi guys! this is great blog! A paint sprayer can save hours of job when used correctly so that it can be worth their price for various projects. The key is to understand what unit might be the best for certain projects.

I love your little chickee! I haven't made a quilt/done any applique in a long time and now you're making me miss it. :/ And what's up with Rocky right above me?
