As promised, here is a quick follow on from yesterdays Kids PJ Pants tutorial. I am not an appliqué expert, but this is quick and easy and has worked a treat for me with the girls:

Appliqué Kids PJ Top Tutorial
T-shirt, pre-washed (I used a soft cotton pointelle thermal top found in The Warehouse - they come in short and long sleeved which are lovely for winter).
Scrap of fabric to match your pj pants (I was able to cut a duck from mine, but you could also just draw your own shapes from generic fabric)
Heat n Bond fusible webbing
1. Using the instructions provided on your fusible webbing, iron the webbing to the WRONG side of your fabric. If you are making your own design, you can draw this onto the paper then iron on to fabric (remember to reverse it!).
2. Cut your shape out with paper backing intact. The added thickness makes for easy cutting too!
3. Peel away backing paper and position your design in place on your top. NB. If you are centering your appliqué, it may pay to fold your top in half and crease (with your thumb, or iron) so you have an accurate reference point. Iron your design on to your top, making sure you slowly move the iron over all parts of your design to ensure it is securely fused in place.
4. Now stitch around your design, using a zigzag stitch on your machine, or hand stitching. Give your top a quick iron and your done!
