A is for Applique

A is for Applique. I have been sewing some cute appliques on burp cloths. Yes, I know. This baby gift theme is going on a little longer than I intended. This will be it for a while, I promise. LOL


B is for Buttefly.
C is for Circle.
D is for Dove. (ok, yes, it should be Bird, but B was already taken)

I can't post about the fun of machine applique without thanking Katherine of Sew Me Something Good. She has written an excellent and easy to follow tutorial. There is a link to it on the side bar of her blog. Thanks again, Katherine! :)

Sweet! Love how the butterfly wings are mirror opposites. :o) Not only fun projects but a new-to-me blog link too.

"P" is for perfect - which is what your appliques are, Kimberly! Hard to believe you haven't been doing applique for years.

I'm so flattered by how you credit my applique tutorial with helping. I keep thinking I need to do a better tutorial, so I merit your praise and referrals. Thank you for your sweet words and the link love. Happy stitching to you! ;o)

Beautiful burp cloths! You know, I would never be able to "ruin" them by putting them to use! But, a wonderful gift idea for a baby shower! Gorgeous.
