I am not sure if this is the appropriate place to post this but here goes anyway!  I made this T-shirt applique for my son this week.  His name is Landon, hence the "L" and he just so happens to like lions too.  I'm not really gonna go into the instructions too much, it's just your basic applique. Just use some double-sided fusible webbing on all the pieces and layer them up like in the picture and you'll be fine.  Grin  If you want to get fancy (like I did) then you can do a reverse applique on just the letter "L".  It gives a nice three-dimensional look. 

Oh and if the picture is too small (craftser shrinks them) then you can get the full sized one on my blog:  http://snazzlecraft.blogspot.com.  The pattern should print on a full size sheet of paper.  Please tell me what you think, I'd love some feedback!

AW! I just love this!

My name also starts with 'L', so this is something I may just have to consider doing!

Can never get enough personalized stuff... Cheesy

Cute shirt!  Also cute lil boy, it looks like he makes the same face my son makes when he says "cheese!"

I love it!  I don't see enough cute clothes for boys. 
Even better, my 6 year old son loves it!  He saw it from clear across the room and ran over.

Totally agree with ravenwitch. There is not enough cute clothes for boys. That is a cool T-shirt. Your son looks pleased with it.

I really like how you made it a multi-dimensional applique. I'm definitely going to use that, once I get to appliqueing in my to-do pile (mess). It looks so cool like that, and so much more interesting that just appliqueing all of them in the same manner.

This is so awesome! Love the bit of dimension you put in buy using the reverse appliqu. The colours go well together and the lion is just adorable. Very well sewn too!

love what you do and do it with all the passion you have inside you.
