Pattern Description:

The cute critter appliqus are fun and easy to make. There are six designs - a bird, owl, ladybug, turtle, snail and dinosaur. They can be reduced or enlarged to any size. You can appliqu the designs on t-shirts, tote bags, bibs, party hats, etc.

Instructions are given to sew a machine straight stitch around the appliqu designs. Other options would be to sew a machine zig zag or satin stitch around the edges. If you don't have a sewing machine, you can embroider the blanket stitch by hand around the edges of the appliqu pieces. A diagram is included in the instructions to hand embroider French knots for eye dots. Pieces of ribbon folded in half are used to make legs and antennae on some of the critters.
