I thought that I'd share a Harvest/Halloween applique with you today. I call it the "There's a pumpkin on my bumkin applique". There are very few times in life when it's okay to have pictures or words plastered on your bottom, but the baby stage is one (if not the only) acceptable stage. Having boys, I don't get to indulge in ruffled bottom tights and bloomers, so an appliqued onesie will have to work.
It's a simple little applique that I designed. I'll share the file with you so long as you respect that it is for personal use only. The template is designed to fit a pre-washed Carter's 0-3 month onesie. You can feel free to adjust it to different sizes.
My applique is done with some scrap knit fabric that I have had stashed away, heat and bond fusible adhesive, some embroidery thread, and lightweight fusible interfacing.
Begin by applying the heat and bond to the wrong side of the fabric.
Next transfer the image to the front side of the fabric using pattern marking/transfer paper. Cut out your pieces.
Adhere the applique pieces to the onesie. I had the small pumpkin in the front, and the large pumpkin on the behind. It should fit right in line with the seams and snaps on the onesie.
Once I was done with the applique and hand stitching I used some fusible interfacing to secure the embroidery threads, and prevent the thread from irritating babies chest.
A fun little applique for the season.
You can find the template here. Once again, the template is for personal use only. Please link up the tops that you've been working on this year in the Top-toberfest link party.
