Preparing the Applique

Lay fusible web, paper side up, over patterns. Use a pencil to trace each pattern the number of times indicated in specific shirt instructions, leaving at least 1/2 inch between tracings.

To prepare appliques with regular edges, cut out each fusible-web shape roughly 1/4 inch outside traced lines. Following manufacturer's instructions, press fusible-web shapes onto backs of assorted fabric scraps as indicated in specific shirt instructions. Let cool, then cut out fabric shapes on drawn lines; peel off paper backings to make appliques.

To prepare appliques with raggy edges, cut out each fusible-web shape 1/4 inch inside the traced lines. Following manufacturer's instructions, press fusible-web shapes onto backs of assorted fabric scraps as indicated in specific shirt instructions, leaving at least 1/2 inch between fusible-web shapes. Let cool, then cut out fabric shapes about 1/4 inch beyond the edges of the fusible-web shapes; peel off paper backings to make appliques.

How to Make It

  1. Arrange all applique pieces on chest area of pink T-shirt. Fuse in place following manufacturer's directions; let cool.
  2. If using lightweight fusible web, stitch around edges of each piece with a narrow zigzag or blanket stitch.
  3. Referring to photograph, hand-stitch rhinestone trim to base of crown. Sew individual rhinestone medallions at each crown point. Hand-stitch feather trim at base of crown below rhinestone trim. (Check to see if your feather trim is machine-washable; if not, remove before laundering shirt, or hand-wash.)
