Easy Applique T-shirt

Back-to-School Shirt #1
This simple little project had been on my list for weeks. Last weekend I finally tackled it. SO EASY - and I love the finished result. Char of Crap I've Made has a great applique tutorial. For me it was WonderUnder and machine sewing. That's it.  Fabric is from Valori Well's Nest collection for Free Spirit. T-shirt is from Target - I think I got it for $4 on sale. Nice.

The shirt received rave reviews from the 6th Grade Girls, which is even more validating than 1,000 blog comments.

  4. Ha ha ha, I know exactly what you mean about 6th grade girls vs. 1000 blog comments. Oh boy, I wouldn't go back to 6th grade if you PAID me!

    This shirt looks great! I love that it's pretty easy to do but makes a big impact.

  5. Love it! My daughter loves appliqued t-shirts I've made her but she's only 6. A 6th grade girl loving it? Nice work, mom!

  9. Nothing like a bit of praise from friends to realise Mum is very hip (and ahead of the trends). LOL. It looks lovely and am so glad your daughter loves it.

  12. I love the applique! Very pretty. I'm going to want to try that.

    I used some of the half-off fabric from the DB sale and made a tunic for my 5th grader this week that she got lots of compliments on. Here's a link.
