101 Tees: Election Day Tee
Machine appliqué is a quick and easy way to alter a tee. Let the fabric print inspire your design or use up scrap fabrics to create a design. For this peace design I used "Peace Hands" designed by Alexander Henry.
1. Begin with a plain tee or a simple star printed tee.
2. Cut a rectangle of lightweight paper-backed fusible web. This should be a little larger than a peace sign hand. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to fuse the webbing to the wrong side of the fabrics.
3. Cut out the peace sign hand. Remove the paper backing. Attach to the center of tee with an iron.
4. Thread your machine with regular or satin thread and use the satin stitch to sew around the edges.
