Lately, I do love a fill stitch appplique. They are smaller and I love to put them either in the middle of a wee-wittle something for the babies or on the side with a monogram under them for the bigger kiddos.
Here are some pictures of what I am talking about.
this one turned ... again! ... but you can see the sailboat with monogram
this sailboat we put on a sweet daygown
Here are some more mini design pictures (they are stock photos). Remember we can change thread colors (i.e. if you like the crab, we can do it in pink for a sweet little lady this summer!)
And they don't have to be on the side of your shirt, we can smack it right in the middle! ... or on a blanket, bloomers, a towel, etc.!
