What you’ll need:
Blank t-shirt, one piece, or tank (pre-washed)
The first thing you’ll want to do is take the template and place it under a sheet of your fusible webbing. Take your pencil and trace “dream big” on to the webbing. With the “dream,” I made the lines connecting the letters together slightly bigger when I traced so it would be easier for stitching. Any time you applique letters or numbers, you’ll want to trace them in the reverse since you will flip them when you adhere them to your garment.
Now that your appliques are attached to the t-shirt, you’re ready to start the applique process. To stitch by hand, cut about 3-4 feet of your embroidery thread. Your skein of thread will have six strands. Separate two of the strands from the piece you’ve cut and thread them through your needle.
Thanks so much for having me, Allison! I hope you and your family are enjoying a well deserved vacation. Aloha!
