Sew the Cutest Applique with Novelty Fabric

Do you ever buy the cutest novelty fabric because you can’t stand to go home without it, and then later you wonder, how will I ever use this? I don’t really want a quilt with {insert whatever cuteness is on the fabric} but I love it so much anyway! 

Well, here’s your solution, cut those adorable somethings out of your novelty fabric and applique them onto something else. Like a t-shirt, t-shirt dress, pant leg (knee patch), tote bag, zipper pouch, whatever! I love applique because it makes just about anything cuter.

Free Butterfly Applique Pattern

Have you noticed our SewCanShe Applique of the Month Club is not really a club… you just need to stop by and see the free applique design each month? But it’s fun to call it a club like we are all getting together to applique, right?

So here’s our design this month. I wanted to share with you some butterflies like the one that I put on my butterfly quilt (except that one is huge, lol!). I was inspired to sew a butterfly when I imagined her wings filled with my favorite scrappy prints.

Free Flower Applique Pattern

This little flower design is close to my heart. I’ve  made three versions of it now. My original flower had over 20 petals! In order to make it easier for everyone, I changed the flower head design, making 3 layers of petals and each layer is a single pattern piece. That’s where I got the idea of ‘Firecracker Flower’ because it overlaps and bursts open like a firecracker.

Free Girly Fox Applique Pattern

Here’s the fourth design in my SewCanShe Applique of the month club. I’m having so much fun bringing them to you and you can find them all in my (all free) Craftsy shop . I’m calling these designs my ‘Far Away Forest’ Collection because they were inspired by  Russian folk tales.

This design is a fox, but she is definitely a girl. She likes to hide in the grass and watch the silly boy fox jump over rocks and things. There is also a sweet and simple tree and a lovely matryoshka.
