How to make one of Magaby's Appliqued Tee's all by yourself!!!
Creating and designing these fun baby items is what I love to do! For many of my friends, they say they just don't have it in them!!! I think they just need to try it and see how easy it really can be:) So I thought I would give a couple tips to help them and anyone else who wants to give it a shot!!
Things you will need:
fabric (your choice)
Wonder Under (iron on fusible)
t shirt, onesie, bag, etc.
sewing machine ***(optional)
First choose a t shirt, onesie, bag, etc. that you would like to apply an applique to; then go to your local fabric and/or hobby store and find a cute fabric that you like. While there, be sure to pick up some Wonder Under, you will need this to iron on your applique. Pick a cute design you would like to have on your tshirt, bag, or anything you can iron on. practice drawing OR tracing the design, when you have it down just right; take your fabric and your Wonder Under, cut both pieces to a size that will allow you to draw your design on. Follow the directions from the Wonder Under to fuse them together with your iron. You can then draw or trace your design onto the 'paper' side of the Wonder Under, cut your design, follow directions on how to iron on, and voile...you have an appliqued tee!!! The Wonder Under should be good enough to hold your applique through washing if done correctly:)!! If you prefer to stitch around the edges for a 'more' appliqued look, you can simply use your sewing machine to stitch around the edges. Be sure to set your machine to the correct settings and take it slow!!
And that's all!!! Go give it a try and be sure to leave a comment to let me know how they turn out!!!!
