I cheated. I used a stencil that was in a copy of Sew Easy, by Sew News. I'm glad you like the dragons! Thank you!

It's pretty easy.
First, either make a stencil, or use one you found. (reversible, if needed)
set your machine to a satin stitch.
trace your stencil on the shirt.
now, take your fabric ( what you want to show through) and put it right side to the wrong side of the shirt. (inside)
pin in place ( or use a wash out interface)
then satin stich on the lines of the stencil.
when finished, carefully, very carefully cut the top layer(the shirt)
and you should have a very neat applique.

Should I do a picture tut?  Might make more sense? yes?

Ok, you'll need a denim shirt/or jacket. denim frays nicely
you'll also need the applique fabric ( from an old colerful mans shirt or a store) and your stencil. ( i'll try to post the stencil later)



place your stencil on the shirt and trace around it. flip and do the other wing.

after tracing, pin the other fabric to the inside of the shirt. I used a white. Just make sure the right side is against the wrong side of the shirt

using a satin stitch, go around the outside of each wing. Then, go around each of the 'feathers' on the inside of the wing.
now, you should be ready to cut.
carefully, using small scissors or a seam ripper, cut out the denim inside the wings but not the 'feathers'.

be careful not the cut thru the colorful under fabric or the satin stich(tho you can go back and restitch if you must.

you should be done! and have a lovely shirt to boot.

i hope this helps.

If anyone makes this, please, post pics so I can see how yours has turned out, ok? thank you for loving it!!!!
