Make some spring tees

Make your little ones some cute shirts for spring. Target has a great selection in the little girl and big girl section of striped and solid tees.
You can draw your shapes by hand or use free coloring page sites online. Once you have what you want and size on paper then trace your applique on wonder under lite.
More instructions are in this post. If your animal/shape you want turned a certain way, remember that when you trace it on wonder under it will be reversed. So you need to reverse your drawing/print. Simply trace the back of your paper with a heavy marker and use that for tracing on the iron-on paper.

Use fun prints, layer fabrics and add buttons and/or embroidery for fun details.

Or just order/buy one from my shop. Bunny and tulip shirts coming up.

...And baby hooded towels, toddler skirts sets, big girl tees...... :)

I love this idea. It never grows old and in about 20 minutes you can have a new cute shirt. Love it!

How do the fabric design edges not fray that you sew on? New to sewing so just wondering if there is another step I don't know of. Thanks and love you site!

Elease, the fabric frays ever so slightly. Only a tiny bit because I use Wonder Under (lite) to fuse it to the tee first. Let me know if you have any more questions!
thanks!
