I had a shirt I liked, the first day I wore it a little girl came up and hugged me while she was covered in gobs of permanent fabric glue.



I tried everything to remove it, but couldn't. I figured this was the perfect opportunity to try my hand at some reverse applique



I used an old blue tshirt, found a rose stencil as inspiration, redrew it on freezer paper. Cut the freezer paper design out. Ironed the negative onto my shirt. I used flour in a sieve that I shook over the freezer paper. I patted it in a bit with my hand then removed the freezer paper. I used a basting spray to hold the blue tshirt on the inside of the black shirt. I used grey dmc floss and chunky stitched around the rose designs. I carefully pulled the top tee and the bottom tee apart in the areas and snipped the top tee only and trimmed around each part.

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. The placement looks better on than it does on the hanger, but I couldn't get a decent picture of it on me.

That's lovely! And the flour technique sounds really interesting.
