Everyone’s a winner this week!
Back to School!
Who doesn’t love the smell of a fresh box of crayons, pointy tips, organized colors, completely unblemished coloring sticks? But we all know they don’t stay in that shape for too long. Nope, just a day to two later, the tips are a bit worn and the colors are not in a predictable order. Planet Applique captured that just-opened box feeling with an adorable embroidery appliqué design. It’s the perfect little design for back-to-school embroidery projects. Too cute on a backpack, t-shirt, book cover or art supply case. Planet Applique wants to spread that feeling to 20 lucky winners this week. They have generously donated $10 gift certificates for 20 lucky winners!
But if back-to-school isn’t on your radar then maybe Halloween is. Here are two of my favorite Halloween designs, Franken Feet and Witch Feet. Either would make a great graphic t-shirt or placemat. That’s the beauty of appliqué, you can add a ton of punch with colorful fabrics in no time at all. I’ve found kids prefer appliqué designs over regular embroidery because appliqué is so comfortable to wear.
And since we’re always concerned about the comfort of wee ones we thought we’d share a tutorial on stitching for little ones making everyone a winner this week!
Next week, we’ll explore some expert tips on stitching professional appliqué.
