Thursday Favorite Things: “Christmas Presents”

Applique-Cover-PageOne of my most favorite things to create is applique designs. I haven’t had much time to work on new ones since I started my part-time JOB, but I really am hopeful that I will be able to come up with a few new ideas this winter. Maybe I’ll work on a couple of fun Valentine’s Day designs, and then something for Easter and springtime, and then it will be summer again!

When I was designing children’s boutique clothing full-time, I created this little outfit for Annie (she was only about three or four years old at the time) with the theme of “Christmas Presents.” The t-top is easy to applique and the shapes are pretty simple, but when you combine this little design with all of the yards and yards of ruffles that I put on the whole outfit, it turned out kind of cute!

Another applique project that I designed for our little munchkin was a sweet pink and brown gingerbread man set. Hmmm . . . . now that I’m thinking about it, I can come up with lots of ideas for seasonal and holiday applique designs! Stop back again soon to see what I come up with next!
