And a close up of the monster applique:
I used the monster called "Bat Monster" as my inspiration for the applique. You can see him in the left hand corner, right under the bottom edge of the shirt.
I'm really having a good time with appliques! I had never done any before doing the Pirate Shirt a few days ago. They aren't nearly as scary or difficult to sew on as I had thought they were! In fact, I wouldn't say they're scary at all! Now I have all kinds of ideas for appliques. If you've never tried it, you should. Great, FUN results. :)
Can wait to see if S likes the result! Christmas is in 11 days...
