Pussycat Applique

I've made this cat motif for a plain t-shirt of Poppy's.
I quite like the end product but I'm not keen on the faffiness of applique - drawing out the right shapes, choosing the right fabric, embellishing with pretty bits. It's not speedy enough for me - this little cat t-shirt took about an hour.
The main fabric is taken from a much loved outgrown blouse, and I very much like the fact applique is a way to preserve those silly sentimentalities a little bit longer.


  1. Very cute! I have just managed to learn how to use a sewing machine and I hope I get as good as you at whipping things up on it.
