Crazy Little Bird Applique Block
Here is our Crazy Little Bird Applique Block. You'll notice a few changes from the one on Pixie's shirt, but all in all, it's the same little guy. I made the pattern to fit on our 6" x 6" blocks. The one on Pixie's t-shirt is about 85% the size of this one, but you can increase or decrease the size to meet your needs. I used light weight cotton calico for Pixie's shirt. I then used Wonder Under to hold it together, and when that failed me, I simply stitched every which way over the whole design! You can always take the designs, add a 1/4" all around, turn the seams under, and applique stitch the pieces in place. You can also use a running stitch about 1/8" around the edge, leaving the raw edges exposed, allowing them to fray. The possibilities are endless... well, maybe not endless but numerous! This was a total hoot to design and to stitch. Watch for other "crazy" animals over the next few months. The pattern can be found in our FREE Applique Patterns or HERE. Enjoy!
