Christmas Applique Shirt

Use these charming Christmas characters to add holiday cheer to any shirt. They also would be great to add to your Christmas stocking or added to a holiday banner or wall hanging.

Choose scrap fabrics from your stash that coordinate with your shirt. You'll need to prewash a new shirt before applying the appliqu├ęs to avoid shrinkage. Just iron on your designs with Wonder Under and stitch around each shape with a zigzag stitch to prevent fraying. You've changed a ho-hum shirt into 'let's party' glad rags with this fast and simple project.

Iron Wonder Under on the wrong side of the material.
Follow the manufacture's directions for ironing on the
Wonder Under.

From the material with the Wonder Under applied, cut
two pieces 17 1/2" long by 1 1/4" wide. One will be
for the collar and the other one will be used on a
long sleeve shirt on the cuffs.

Trace pattern pieces on the Wonder Under and cut out
all pieces. Remove Wonder Under paper backing from
all pieces. Position each piece on shirt with right
side of the material up. Iron pattern pieces on the
shirt as directed for the Wonder Under.

Sew pieces on with a medium tight zig zag stitch.

This is another easy and fun shirt to make, so enjoy sewing!!!
