hoot hoot

I copied this picture of the owl off a shirt I bought from BigW. It was my very first applique attempt. I cut out my fabric, sewed it together, picked out some buttons from Nana's stash for the eyes, then wasn't sure what came next. I visited the helpful ladies from Sewco and came home with tearaway and vliesofix. After ruining my ironing board cover - I finally worked out how to get the owl onto the shirt :) I think the very first recipient of the shirt liked it very much!

  1. Yes she did! And still does! And thank you for cutting out my horrible head in the photo!
