Applique


Another pair of boys shorts that I added a bit of applique to make them more to Abby's liking.  I have had these 1930s leafs cut out sitting in a pile for years.  They were supposed to become a border for a 1930s quilt the never quite materialized.  But I think they are the perfect addition to the shorts.  At Abby's request I added a little bumble bee. 


The next is a tee shirt that I picked up at Hobby Lobby.  The flowers around the collar really turned out great and I experimented with a bit of machine embroidery.  


I have a few ideas on using this applique technique in a quilt so stay tuned.
