Pattern Description:

These adorable animal appliqus are fun and easy to make! There are eight designs - a monkey, sheep, frog, puppy, kitty, bunny, bear and piggy. The designs can be reduced or enlarged to any size. You can appliqu the designs on t-shirts, onesies, tote bags, quilt blocks, bibs, 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. Some of the animals share the same pieces - the puppy, monkey and sheep have the same body/head; the monkey and sheep have the same face; the kitty and bunny have the same nose; the puppy and bear have the same nose; the bear and pig have the same muzzle.
