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.

    Ha ha ha, I know exactly what you mean about 6th grade girls vs. 1000 blog comments. Oh boy, I wouldn&#39;t go back to 6th grade if you PAID me!<br /><br />This shirt looks great! I love that it&#39;s pretty easy to do but makes a big impact.

    Love it! My daughter loves appliqued t-shirts I&#39;ve made her but she&#39;s only 6. A 6th grade girl loving it? Nice work, mom!<br /><br />Jennifer 🙂

    That&#39;s a really good way to personalize a t-shirt. Pretty cool.

    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.

    I love the applique! Very pretty. I&#39;m going to want to try that.<br /><br />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. <a href="http://myimaginaryblog.wordpress.com/2010/09/10/it-feels-like-a-small-miracle-when-i-find-some-time-to-sew/&quot; rel="nofollow">Here&#39;s a link.</a>

    Very pretty! And if the 6th graders like it you are practically Wonder Woman.
