I don't know what has gotten in to me today but I am actually going to attempt to applique two little t-shirts. The cost per shirt is around $2.00 so if I fail then I don't have much in it and won't feel so bad.
Next, I stitched around each design.

But, on the bird design I just stitched right on the edge. Lastly, the cross t-shirt had to be washed to get the edges to fray. The best thing about this kind of applique is that the more you wash it the better it looks. I love the frayed edges and it hides any imperfections in my sewing (gotta love that).
