KITCHEN APPLIQUE... Chick With Hattitude!

Last Thursday was spent with a lovely friend. We went to the Craft and Quilting Show in Del Mar, California. Lot's of vendors and fun things to see. There were several Make-It~Take-It opportunities. We decided on the T-Towels. Vendor had a bit of trouble with his irons, so we brought our pieces home and finished them.

While at the show we walked our socks off, but made up for it later by grabbing a Hot Dog for lunch at Costco where we did some more shopping!
Chick With Hattitude: fusible applique; machine stitched
This little kitchen towel is a very quick project. Decide on a design or drawing -- simple line drawings from kid's coloring books are good sources -- trace the shapes on to Fusible. Cut out shapes and fuse in place. I stitched my shapes on with a simple Blanket Stitch on my Janome6500 sewing machine [Mode 2, Stitch #34, stitch length 3.0, stitch width 1.5]. The little sparkle eyes are heat-set. I've never used them before so don't know how they hold up and wash... time will tell. The two towels I'm sharing with you today are mostly decorative, so I'm not too worried about the sparkle eyes.

That's all for tonight. I'm finishing up the purse project and taking several pictures to share with you soon. Hope you have loads of time to sew up something that makes your heart sing!

Too, too cute, Cyn! What kind of fabric did you use for the background of your t-towel? Just cotton? or....???

Curious minds might want to copy your idea... :-)

Tks!
