I love little chickens, I think they are so cute! Spring is here finally and little baby chicks remind me of springtime. Easter is around the corner too! So in celebration of spring I have a new applique mug rug to show you all. And since it is applique I thought it would be a good opportunity to show you all how to do fusible applique. It's quick and easy!
|Trace your pieces onto the heat n bond. Make sure to draw on the paper side.|
|Iron onto the wrong side of the fabric.|
|Cut out your pieces and then lay onto your fabric. Peel the paper off. Make sure you|
have the pieces placed just right before you iron it. Remember your picture will be
'mirror' image of what you traced.
|Layer the front, batting and backing and pin well.|
I like to use my blanket stitch on my machine to sew around
the pieces. You can also handstitch these if you would like.
|Aren't the little chickies cute!!!|
The pattern for these cute little chickens can be found on Etsy and Craftsy. The colors can be switched up to look like a little baby bluebird or robin. They are quick and easy to make in an afternoon and Easter is right around the corner. Paired with a candle or some candy and you have a wonderful springtime gift.
