Well – I finally did it. Maybe you recall MONTHS ago when I wrote a post about getting inspired by the flower within the Belk logo? I finally created an appliqué design based on this flower and OMG – I think it turned out so cute. I can’t say who this sweatshirt is for – just in case certain people might be reading this blog. But I think this is right up her alley.
I bought this sweatshirt at Old Navy a few weeks ago with the idea of creating this type of design and stitching it out on this sweatshirt. Luckily – due to the fact that I bought boat loads of fabric this summer at cool independent fabric stores, I had the four pieces of fabric that actually coordinated with each other and the sweatshirt. I actually think I bought this fabric at Sewcial in Madison, WI with the intention of making tiered skirt for one of my girls – which may still happen since I only used a tiny bit of the fabric.
I have to admit – this design is a bit of a pain to stitch out since all of the petals need to be trimmed before the finished satin stitching is done. But I think the pain is worth it… don’t you?
