If life throws you permanent stains

Make applique!

This is my first foray into the world of applique & I think I may be addicted. The words "I wish you had more stained clothes so I could do more applique" came out of my mouth before I had a chance to stop them.

It was pretty easy. I cut out the flower from an old pillow case I had in my stash. Ironed it on to some of the fusible stuff (yes, I'm sure that's the technical term). Removed the paper backing & ironed it on to the shirt, then sewed around all the edges with the applique stitch on sewing machine. Voila! The shirt is wearable once more.

I'm hoping to make my first attempt at applique this spring. You make it sound so easy but I suspect it isn't
