Brother is closely approaching his first birthday (November 18th), and I am preparing to make his birthday special. The first DIY project is the bow tie applique birthday shirt for his “Little Man” themed party.
here’s how i made it: (disclaimer, i really am not a sewer and if i can do it, so can YOU!)
pattern for shape
plain cotton shirt
directions: wash both fabrics BEFORE doing the project!
stitch slowly around the fabric making sure to catch the fabric and the edge (to help with unraveling after washing). be extra slow and careful around turns and curves.
definitely not perfect stitching, but not bad for the first-timer!
honestly, it wasn’t nearly as difficult as i had thought it would be and i think it turned out pretty cute! if you applique something using this tutorial, i would love to see the finished product!
thanks for stopping by~
