The Daily Done: June 22

On June 22, I tried my hand at iron-on appliques. Hard to believe, but I didn't have a single item of clothing with a bat applique! :o

I used a thrift store skirt which I was not totally in love with, just in case I ruined it. I cut a bat shape out of scrap fabric and ironed it on with fusible web.

It worked well, so I started on a couple more projects which I'll show when finished.

Bat applique... Done!

  1. SQUEE! A batty ... er ... poodle ... skirt! And don't forget, Michael's will have Halloween appliques starting at the end of July/beginning of August. I bought a bunch a few years back with the goal of spookifying my blazers, shirts, skirts, etc.

    1. I adore 50's style poodle skirts, and I've been wanting to do one with a bat. :) Good point about Michael's!

  6. Put a bat on it! Spruce it up, make it pretty!
    I'm like you, I am addicted to putting bats on things I am not overly fond of...
    It makes an ok skirt, into a fan-freaking-tastic one =D

  9. I've thought about doing this with pillows at my house - get a basic throw pillow sham and then use appliques to turn it into a bat pillow sham. Do you have to finish the edges with anything like ribbon or some other notion, or are raw edges okay?
