I’ve been, “shopping my closet,” as they say, and I really like this t-shirt. It’s very soft and I have lots of red and navy to wear with it. It’s also very thin and see-through. I have to wear a camisole under it, and that defeats the purpose of light and soft. I decided to see if I could cut out the applique and attach it to another shirt.
I decided to add some iron-on stabilizer to the back before cutting it out.
I chose Sulky Tender Touch, not because I wanted it soft, but because I wanted it flexible.
Tender Touch is very hard to tell which side is the fusible one, so I used my new see-through, Teflon sheet as a pressing cloth, just in case I goofed.
I used a polyester setting with no steam on my iron and gave it a press. (about 20 seconds)
I cut it out and turned it over!
I also saved the neckband for the piping. I may use that to “frame” the applique when I attach it to another tee:
And the t-shirt leftovers made me a nice new pile of polishing cloths for my soap!
This beauty is blooming outside the house where I babysit. I wonder how these blossoms would look printed on fabric and embellished? Or maybe appliqued on a green blender background?
Yellow beads or French knots? Martha Stewart recently aired instructions on making a “burned silk flower.”
Hmmmmn? Coral silk? Gold or yellow Angelina film for the stamens?
