My class on Applique and Embellishment is now one week away. On top of that, I am going to teach sewing to two teens beginning Thursday. In the midst of all of the samples and class projects, I have still managed to eek out another easy tutorial. This one is on how to applique a burp cloth. These make great baby gifts AND they use up some of your scraps. Best of all, they make a lovely personalized gift for a newborn!
Let’s begin with supplies:
Choose your fabric. For this project, anything goes. I like to lay it out first to see how the colors will look.
Choose a contrasting thread for the top stitching and use white thread in the bobbin. This way, you don’t have to add a strip of fabric to the back to hide the stitching. Zigzag around the outside of each letter. Don’t forget to stitch around the inside openings!
That’s all there is to it!
