Lemon Week: Applique a cute lemon patch

lemonpatchToday’s installment in lemon week is a crafty rather than a tasty treat! This little lemon would make an adorable patch on a little girl’s shirt or onesie, or even some fun tea towels for your kitchen. And she’s available for free download below (for personal and gifting use only, please!)

You’ll just download the pdf, and print on Iron On Transfer Paper. Then just applique on the finished patch!

Glitter Vinyl & Thread has an excellent tutorial, with lots of pics, on how to do the whole process. She does it with Tea Towels, but the same process would work great with baby onesies, or t-shirts.

Of course, the same principle works with any image, from your kid’s artwork to a favorite photograph…

Other ideas: Transfer paper is really cool for other things too… you can use heat transfer paper to bake the image on to a tile, for a nifty trivet. There are even kits that let you print directly onto silk with your inkjet printer!

So, try it out! And I’d love to see pics of your final products…!
