There is someone nearby who makes and sells these and they're really well done and worth every penny, but cost more pennies than I care to spend on a sweatshirt. So I made one for myself, on a lesser-quality sweatshirt (bought on clearance) just to try it out. If I want to make more for me or as gifts, I'll probably up the quality. I wouldn't try to sell them, though, I promise!
The cotton print that I made my Montana from is one I had in my stash! And I already had the appropriate color thread, so this helps me in my quest to use stash first this year!
I wanted the edges to get a little frayed so I just straight stitched the applique onto the shirt, but it is backed with fusible interfacing, so hopefully it will only get a little
Annnnnnd and action shot... because Montana is
a mountain state.
I just want to add that I am glad that I don't live in a state with a really complicated border!
