Cut out your fabric design.
Fold your shirt in half and iron it to create a crease. Now, fold your template in half to create a crease. DO NOT IRON THE TEMPLATE.
Line up the crease in the template to the crease in the shirt.
Iron the fabric template to the shirt.
Follow the Heat n Bond directions for ironing.
Sew around the edges of your fabric template.
I used a straight stitch for this applique, but I also like using a zig zag stitch.
Clip off the extra thread and enjoy your new applique shirt :)
These make great birthday presents and baby shower gifts! Make one for the childs age and initial of their name. You can even make a silhouette shape of a plane, skull, star or whatever else you can think of.

Have fun creating! I would love to see what you make :)
I've been making cakes for almost 6 years and I'm just starting to sketch them out before creating the real thing. I do not know if you do this when you are thinking of a cake creation, but it is a helpful idea.
Before, I would create as I was decorating. Sometimes it would get stressful, because I had no direction. The cakes would still came out cute, but I stressed myself out while doing it.
Now, the last 10 or so cakes I have been creating a sketch before I start to work and I love doing so. It's another creative outlet (even if I can't draw) and it helps me to have some sort of detail direction.
The sketch above is what I invision for Madison's 6th Birthday Cake. The black bow and pink flowers will be ruffley (if that's a word), and the second teir will be a quilting pattern with edible silver pearls. She wants a 'Zebra Diva Party' and I'm having a BLAST creating it :)
Any ideas? I would love to hear some of your ideas for a zebra party! I have lots of ideas that I can not wait to share with you.
The best part of the card is the hand-written personal love note venting your feelings.
It doesn't matter if flowers only live a week. It's nice to get flowers from the one you love. Flowers brighten up the day and brings a smile to the face :)
A small goody bag is enough to place a smile on the kiddos face or add a Pillow Pet and and a Movie for a bigger gift.
You can not go wrong with candy, so get some sweets for your sweetheart♥!
Shower the one you love with kisses! One for every year you have celebrated this day together.
I, honestly, could care less about any of the flowers, cards, candy, and gifts, as long as I am with my loves on Valentine's Day, but it sure is nice to be spoiled and get showered with love and gifts :)
I bought three Chocolate Candy Flower Bouquets from my friend Ashlee who is starting a bakery. My Mom, Step-Mom, and Mother-in-Law loved them! These would be a great gift for birthdays and mother's day. Order yours today by clicking on the link. Tell her Raychel sent you :)
