Fabric Applique Designs from Silhouette Kids Wall Art

Save Those Sweet Baby Clothes & Make a Fabric Applique

 

If you're like us here at Oopsy daisy, you become sentimentally attached to clothing, blankets, and other material things as your little ones outgrow them. Many people hold on to extra special items like the outfit Junior wore home from the hospital, christening gowns, or that handmade blanket from Grandma to cherish as keepsakes or pass down as heirlooms. But, what about those little dresses and overalls they wore a few times on "uneventful" days that you just can't bear to part with? We suggest you keep it around, but find a new use! Create a fabric applique  from these little treasures to jazz up something new.

If you need inspiration, look to Oopsy daisy's fine art for loads of ideas. For starters, Annette Tatum's nursery art collection has great shapes and motifs to model after, and be sure to check out our silhouette wall art by Alice Feagan and Stacy Amoo-Mensah for designs. We've also got a ready made pattern you can use from our Rachel Taylor owl craft blog.

Once you've settled on a design, choose a product to apply your fabric applique to. It can be a pillow to match your little one's room decor, a canvas bag to take that extra set of clothes in to daycare, or a fun denim jacket or purse! You'll start seeing places on which you can applique your designs everywhere once you start looking. Lastly, you'll need fusible web (pick it up at any craft or fabric store) to easily affix your fabric to whatever background you've chosen. If you're extra crafty, you can sew a cute button on for an eye, or hot glue some ric rac or sequin trim for some added pizazz.

This craft is terrific because of all the options out there. You don't have to say goodbye to those sweet outfits you can't bear to part with (or those that have an irremovable stain!), just cut out a shape, and use it to make a new lasting memory.
