Little Angel Wing Applique

I love, love, love how this turned out.  I have a shirt with angel wings on the back that I got a couple years ago and it inspired me to make one for the little giggler.  It was super easy.

Supplies Needed:

Plain T-shirt or tank top
Heat n Bond 
Sewing Machine 
Coordinating thread

First print and cut out your stencil.

Iron your Heat n Bond to the wrong side of the fabric.  Trace your wings onto the Heat n Bond paper.

Cut out your two wings.  Remove the paper.

Next, iron it on to your T-shirt.  I could see the printed on tag through the shirt, so I used that as a guide to center my wings.  I found this white T at Wal-mart for $2.50.  The tank tops are Hanes boys size 2T-3T.  They came in a 5 pack for around $5.00.

Now sew around the edges.  When you get to a corner, leave your needle down, lift your foot, then turn your shirt, put the foot down and sew again.  I tried to show that in the picture below.

Here's what it looks like finished.

I tried to get fancy with plain fabric.  I used my fabric pen to draw some lines, then I sewed over them.
   What do you think?

I'll be linking up to these cool parties.
