this is my newest applique of a girly skull, i used blanket stitch on just about all of the skull along with a few backstitches and a zig zag stitch. i also had my first run in with wonder under, which i think went pretty well. comments and critiques welcome! p.s. i apologize for the awful quality of the phone/no light pictures

I made this using a shirt that was on clearance from Target and some fabric scrap tulle from walmart and a few pieces of scrap fabric to make the applique. I made the applique first, then used wonder under to attach it to the shirt itself, and then I made the tutu and then sewed it to the shirt, which in turn made it into a dress. Its sized for a 12 month old girl, now I just need one to fill it. And onto the good stuff, although I apologize for the horrible phone quality, the pictures:

Very cute!

The 1YO that will walk around in this will indeed be a very tough little toddler !

Great work!

Always trying to improve my needle skills to prevent my fingertips from bleeding..

Armed with a needle.. but no needle in my arm.
