I used Michael Miller's Eiffel Tower fabric in blue and for 3T, I used way less than 1/2 a yard of fabric. Since I had a lot left, I cut out one of the Eiffel Towers and created an applique for her t-shirt. This was perfect since we were going to a Bon Voyage party for one of our friends today. M was a hit! Everyone loved the outfit.
The applique was super easy to do. I cut out a rectangular shape in my leftover fabric, used a tight zig zag stitch around all of the edges and then used Heat & Bond and ironed the piece on to the t-shirt. Voila - instant applique!
It was my first time working with elastic thread, but I wasn't scared at all! It was actually really easy and I can't wait to work with it again. I can't wait to make more of these bloomers, too. They're adorable!
For a limited time, Whimsy Couture is offering this new pattern for only $4 (up to a size 4T) on their blog, so be sure to go over there and pick it up!
