The lowercase alphabet appliqus are fun and easy to make. They include the 26 letters of the alphabet plus a small star and heart that can be used to dot the "i" and "j", or just for ornamentation like the t-shirt in the photo above. You can enlarge or reduce the letters to make them any size you'd like. Use the letters to appliqu words on t-shirts, tote bags, pillowcases, etc. Cotton print fabrics were used for appliqus on sample t-shirt. The alphabet is fun for girls and boys! Instructions are given to sew a machine straight stitch around the appliqu letters. 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 or sew a running stitch by hand around the edges of the appliqu pieces.
