From Blah to Ta-Da!

Recently, I discovered  She sells wonderfully digitized modern embroidery & applique designs.  I purchased the Scribbled Daisy design last night and I see many more purchases in the future!  Just wanted to take the time to show how I brought new life to this plain white t-shirt.
Nothing exciting here.....


Here's the neat part!  Instead of turning to my fabric stash, I turned to the stash of clothes that I know I'll never wear again - primarily due to the fact that THEY DON'T FIT & I'm in DENIAL about the fact that they NEVER will again. So for my sewing & applique friends, don't fret over clothes that are too small or accidentally get dried in the dryer!  Cut them up and "re-purpose" the fabric! 
Close up - love the scribbles!                                             Shirt I haven't worn in years
