Applique Fun

Appliques and patches are a great way to add some flair to any clothing…perfect for a quick back-to-school project or gift idea.

Super easy temporary appliques have an adhesive backing.  Just place firmly for 20-25 seconds for an instant application and when you’re ready to wash your items, remove and return to the card and reapply afterwards.

Or use the iron-on versions for a more permanent look.  Set your iron to a dry heat on the lowest setting, place your applique and on the back use your heated iron to apply pressure for 20-25 seconds.  Allow to cool to properly set before wearing.

 

Be Happy is a perfect choice for easy-to-make bibs and blankets… a quick gift for any new little ones!

All that’s needed is a selection of fabric, back to back flannelette or even back with a coordinating cotton or cozy chenille.

Follow the instructions to make the easy bib and blanket or if pressed for time, follow the extra easy instructions!
