So I have to ask a question…Anyone else LOVE fabric?  I mean, I am a total beginner sewist and even before I got my sewing machine…I LOVED FABRIC!  My favorite thing to do is browse all the awesome fabrics at Jo-Ann’s.  Even better…the remnant rack!  I love, love, love the remnant rack!  Would you believe me that I made these mittens, scarf and hat from a remnant of fleece I picked up?

Jo-Ann’s has tons and tons of choices for fleece.  I also picked up some for a cute toddler knot blanket that I will share soon!  Here is how I made my matching set!

Supplies Needed:

  • 2/3 yard of fleece in your favorite color or pattern
  • Sewing machine/thread
  • Scissors
  • Pen or marker
  • Yarn

Funny Baby Onesies Using Heat Transfer

I really like funny baby onesies!  I made this Freshly Squeezed onesie for my BFF RG’s new baby boy and I have several more in my shop!  My high school girlfriend just had a baby girl so, of course, I wanted to make her a onesie!  Since normally I get to make them for boys, I was excited to do one for a girl!  {it has pink on it! Yay!} I think I’ll add an No Sew Infant Tutu and a Rosette Headband and send her a complete little outfit!

I mean, who doesn’t love a baby in a funny little custom made onesie?  I cannot think of a person!

Here is how I made my onesie!  It’s the exact same technique that I used on my Boo Ghost Shirt and my Ho3 Kitchen Towel!  Let’s get started!!

Hola Fabric Applique Shirt + Free Cut file

DIY Fabric Applique Shirt | Hola!

I am so excited to also share with you a fabric applique shirt.  It’s my rendition of the “hello” shirt…with my “Hola!” shirt, using Silhouette’s Heat Transfer interfacing!  I love interfacing and using it just got a whole lot better now that I can cut fabric with my Silhouette!  Now that I have my toes wet….the ideas are just racing through my head about things I can create next!

The downfall of using fabric for designs and appliques is “How am I going to cut that out so it looks decent?”  Right?  Like a snowflake for instance or a detailed flower or vine pattern or even my fun scripty font I used for my shirt.  The cuts are so crisp using your Silhouette and the interfacing keeps the design right where it should be while you are sewing it in place!  I am in love!  LOVE I tell you!  Here is how I made my shirt:
