Appliqué T-shirt


Cut and prepare butterfly patterns A through H.

From green-and-turquoise print, cut:
1 of Butterfly Pattern A

From lime green dot, cut:
1 each of butterfly patterns B and B reversed

From light brown print, cut:
1 each of butterfly patterns C, C reversed, E, and E reversed

From blue-green print, cut:
1 each of butterfly patterns D, D reversed, F, and F reversed

From turquoise print, cut:
2 of Butterfly Pattern G

From dark brown dot, cut:
2 of Butterfly Pattern G

From bright green print, cut:
2 of Butterfly Pattern H (Jann fussy-cut her H circles over leaf motifs on her bright green print so they looked like eyes.)

1. Arrange all pieces on bottom edge of T-shirt with part of wings wrapping around to the T-shirt back. Fuse in place following manufacturer’s directions; let cool.

2. If using lightweight fusible web, stitch around edges of each piece with a narrow zigzag or blanket stitch.

3. Referring to photo, use black perle cotton and a chain stitch to hand-stitch the antennae. To make a chain stitch, pull needle up at A, form a U shape with the perle cotton, and hold the shape in place with your thumb (Chain Stitch Diagram). Push needle down at B, about 1/8" from A, and come up at C to secure stitch. Continue in same manner to create antennae.
