HALLOWEEN SHIRTS

My DD saw a shirt she loved for her three girls to wear during the Halloween season. She didn't however like the price tag almost $40 for a shirt for a two, three and four year old. Yep it would have been $120. for three shirts. She asked if I could come up with a Witches Hat Applique in Zebra print, Polka Dots, etc.

I went to Target bought three white t-shirts. Went to Nancy's Calico Patch and bought some zebra print fabric and lightweight fusible. Went to Wal-mart and bought several spools of ribbon.

Drew a witch's hat on the paper backing on the fusible, cut the shape out, ironed it to the front of the t-shirts. Did a black zig-zag around the edges, stitched the ribbon down around where the band would join the hat, made a bow and stitched it down.
And using the "Child's Play" font built into my Bernina 830 I added their names on a slight curve following the brim of the hat.

And the results-----
