When I was a Girl Scout leader
I had a Brownie scout who would cheerfully come to each meetings
and immediately want to know
"What's the craft today?"
She is still a friend of my daughter
and came to her shower last Sunday.
She was thrilled to see we had a craft project planned!
One of the hostesses bought onesies in a variety of sizes
And the guests were asked to decorate them for the new baby.
Being the control freak that I am,
I volunteered to find the fabric
And make some templates for ideas.
I got a layer cake of "Twirl" designed by Me and My Sister.
It's really fun fabric.
I chose the pieces that I thought would work best,
used only half of the 10 inch square,
and fused Wonder Under to the wrong side.
I chose a lot of pink, yellow and green.
It was interesting how many of the 27 women's present,
both young and old,
didn't know about fusible applique.
So we had a couple of mini lessons
And off they went.
It turned out to be a fun and cute project.
It gave everyone a chance to do something
and visit, and laugh and create.
My original intent was to stitch around the appliqués
to secure them better,
But I think they'll be fine just the way they are.
She might be graduating from college by the
time I finished.
Now back to the fabric.
Remember I used only half of the layer cake.
I picked up this Schnibbles pattern and
It should be cute using Twirl.
I know I will get this done sooner,
than if I had to stitch around the appliques.
Until Next Time-
