Today's project came from work...literally. Yes, some may call me a thief....I try to look at it a little more loosely. I'm a borrow-er :). I just wanted to dress up our preemie boy's wardrobe. Especially with valentine's day right around the corner right? Right!
I made a freehand pattern out of some scrap cardstock. I basically wanted the tie to be twice as long as it was wide. Once I got the tie shape right I added a half circle on the top for a knot. I ironed my fabric to Wonder Under to create an appliqué. Then i traced my pattern to the Wonder Under paper backing. I cut out my tie appliqué then ironed it to my 'borrowed' tshirt. To make my tie look more realistic I folded the bottom edge of the knot appliqué and then ironed it in place.
How cute is this?!
