Inspired by wonderful coasters I'd just completed using a brilliant Alexander Henry Fabric from the 2005 collection entitled "mini Calaveras" I tried my hand at machine appliqué. Despite a few snags the end product was quiet nice and I think my niece will enjoy wearing as Halloween and Dia Del Muertas approaches. I used a tee-shirt from Sears and simple shapes, oval and heart, to highlight a few Calaveras along with fusible webbing to keep the edges from fraying while I sewed them in place. Machine appliqué is rather time consuming but the finished product is worth the time.
