Reverse applique tutorial

on a baby onesie.
This is my first attempt!
Draw or trace desired image with water soluble pen.

Cut a piece of fabric larger than your image and
pin it to the underside of your drawn image.

Sew along your drawn lines.

I used a modified zig-zag stitch.

Trim fabric from back of image.

Trim fabric from top. Use small scissor,

cut carefully and SLOWLY!

Spritz the pen markings to remove blue lines.

It will look even better after laundering

because the knit edges will roll back.
T-shirt knit fabric would give more stretch

than the appliqued gingham.
