Instead of a plain old initial tee, this time I decided to go a different route. I appliqued a sweet, simple bunting on the tee with an inital on top. I envisioned the kind of bunting you would see hanging from an apple tree's limbs over a table full of goodies at one of those well photographed little girl parties. ;)
So I used mismatched fabric scraps and a simple letter 'K'.
This was a super quick and easy applique. Great for those of you who've never tried it before. :)
I started by drawing a few triangles on a sheet of paper. When I got the size I wanted where I could fit 3 across, I used that one (the larger one above). For the 'K' I used some printed letters in a template notebook I keep as it was already the perfect size. You can use any standard small stencil size or freehand it or look online. Once you find your letter template, be sure to trace it on the back so it is reversed.
Trace your triangle (the same one) 3 times and your letter on your wonder-under lite (or other fusible).
Cut and iron to the back of your fabrics. Once cooled cut around the lines and peel the paper backing off.
Place carefully on your tee til you are happy with the arrangement. Carefully iron down.
