I seem to have a Mickey thing at the moment.  Good thing the kitten doesn't mind.







Thanks to vegbee for the patchwork inspiration.

I only wish I had an embroidery machine.  I just used a zig-zag stitch - medium width, very short stitch length.  This was my first try at applique, but I think it came out ok.  My biggest problem was going slow enough.  I don't like sewing slowly & neither does my machine.   Wink

I am lucky enough to have an embroidery machine, but can't find a mickey applique ANYWHERE! 

From the pics it looks great!  I hope my first swing at it turns out so well!

me too!  i finally realized that the only way i would be successful at applique would be to lower the speed on my machine (ha!  i knew there was a reason for that option)  this way it won't let me sew very fast.  i really have just started too, though, so i will have to post some of my first attempts.
that is just precious, and the clothes are too!

I printed a Mickey head I found online & cut it out of one of the fabrics I used on the skirt part.  It would have worked better if I had used stabilizer when I appliqued it on, but I didn't have any & I wanted it done NOW not later.   Grin
