Cute, no!? This applique consists of three templates, drawn by hand. If you're not comfortable with free-handing, you could always print out a picture of a crab and trace it. The three pieces of the template are the 1) body 2) right legs 3) left legs. For the legs, I chose a mini print floral fabric and for the body, a red and white polka dot. I also used buttons for the eyes. The buttons are vintage. As in, stolen from my mama's sewing basket. They add a nice touch for her little granddaughters, I think.
For the detailed instructions on how to make and attach your own appliques, check back to the how-to on a prior post HERE.
I think these little girls are digging their summer t-shirts. What do you think? They like them, they really like them! Yippee! And for $4 tanks plus a few scraps of fabric, add in a little time - they're stylishly cheap (I mean chic) too!
Which means, I think it's time I start planning for some Halloween and Christmas appliques already! Ohhhh, I should plan to make another trip home soon so I can have mama sew a little more for me.
I mean, spend time with my family.
