Our houseis gearing up and these cute faces CANNOT WAIT til Christmas morning!My two sweet babies (aren’t they always babies in a Momma’s eyes?) are sosweet and have way too many toys to count (thanks Grandparents!) so Santais going to surprise them with a little playhouse to enjoy ALL YEAR LONG!You won’t find too many knick-knack toys under our tree this year.
Since I LOVE to sew and love things handmade, Ithought I would share with you this

Candy Cane Applique Tutorial!

1. Gather materials. Fabric (scraps will do), ablank t-shirt, ribbons and Heat-N-Bond fusible webbing.

2. Figure out what you want to applique. Iron theBUMPY side of the heat n bond to the WRONG SIDE of your fabric scraps. Drawyour candy cane backwards.

3. Cut it out. Peel off the paper backing. Placeon the shirt and press with a hot iron for a few seconds. PRESTO! You justappliqued!

4. Zig-zag stitch around it and embellish as youwish.

8. I cut 2 pieces of 18 inch ribbon in two colors.

 9. Sew on the ribbons (make sure you sewin the middle of them) to the shoulders.

10. Tie your ribbons into bows and you are done!
 Once you start appliqueing you might notbe able to stop! Think of all the possibilities! Applique shirts, skirts, jeans, tablerunners, pillows…SOOOO fun!!
Here are some burlap pillows on our couch that Iappliqued. LOVING BURLAP!
