Reverse Star Applique
I'm getting the hang of the cover-stitch machine now, I think. This shirt is made from the Ottobre Workshop 301 pattern that I bought from Crafty Mamas. The orange and navy stripe is Hilco Campan knit, also from Crafty Mamas. I am not 100% sure, but I think the navy was Seaspray from Spotlight.
The embellishment is called a reverse applique because instead of cutting out a star and sewing it on top of the fabric, I cut a star shaped hole in the fabric and placed the fabric behind.
I used my sewing machine's stretch-stitch to top-stitch around the star. I think it looks quite effective.
I am participating in Blogtoberfest, hello to all blogtoberfestians! I am also holding a give-away over here.
