I had 4 (well, actually I had more, but I hused 4 here) old xL tshirts that i got at the same garage sale I got my corkboard at (incedentally I also got some wooden embroidery hoops and some greta vintage jewelry there too). And I wanted to make some cute tops for summer. I thought I would practice on tshirts before I went on to my nicer fabrics. I am very pleased with the way this one came out. I just made it up as I went along, and I had no idea it would be red white and blue but that's cool too. I might wear it this upcoming holiday (btw, Happy Memorial Day everybody!). Here are some pics, comments are welcome!

I am a beginner at applique but so far I like it a lot.
