flannel scraps

Amazing what ONE little owl can do.
I began with some flannel scraps and thought my little blankets
were a bit....


BORING.

I WAS happy to use up some scraps though!

Like I said.....
That ONE little owl adds SOooo much.

Blanket stitching makes it look even better!

Remembering to cut out the center of the
fusable is BETTER still!!!!
It makes the applique so much softer!
Those fusables can be STIFF!

I even added DARK little circles in the eyes
with a permanent pen!

Bottom LINE:
Boring blankets can be CUTE with just a little something!

Google an image.
Get some ideas.
Iron on some fusable.
Add a little stitching.


VIOLA!

  8. sweet! I adore appliques - I'm always looking for a spot to put them. I don't usually use fusibles, though.
