Appliqueing an American Girl Doll Shirt

12 Apr

Here is a little help on how to applique on those tiny American Girl Doll shirts

Supplies:

American Girl doll shirt

Hyrdo Stick

Small hair clips

Hoop your stabilizer

 

Wet the Hydro stick to make it sticky

(Yep, I’m at it again with the Hydro Stick!!!!  🙂   )

Center your American Girl doll shirt on the hoop

Using small hair clips gather the extra material out of the way .

This would also work great with onsies or any extra fabric that might get in the way when embroidering

Craft Tip of the Day~~~ Appliqueing on T-shirts

19 Mar

I don’t know about you but I had such a hard time embroidering on T-shirts when I first started!!!  I couldn’t tell you how many shirts I ruined!!!  The shirt always pulled or stretched.  Something always happened!!  I was about to give up on making shirts for my kids.  I just couldn’t figure out how all those people on ETSY and EBAY made all those cute shirts.

I finally got smart and went to my local sewing store and asked what I was doing wrong.  It of course was my stabilizer!!  The kind women introduced me to  Hydro- Stick Tear away stabilizer.  Oh my goodness what a WONDERFUL product!!!!  So easy to use and now all my shirts turn out perfect!!

 

In case you  have not used it, here is a quick tutorial on how to use this great product.

Turn your T-shirt inside out

Cut off a section big enough for your project.  This is going to be your stabilizer for your t shirt.  You will not need anything else ( unless you need a topping over your project , but that will be another post for another day)

Get a wash cloth wet and dampen the shinny side of the stabilizer.  It will become sticky.

Put the wet side down on the back of the T-shirt and press firmly to stick the stabilizer to the T-shirt

Turn Right side out and hoop as normal

Since the Stabilizer is sticky it holds the shirt tightly in place.  It will not move at all!!

When you have completed the design just pull off all the extra stabilizer from the back.

Now you will have  a perfectly stitched T-shirt!!
