Appliqued Shirts

The Polka Dot Store

Wow, I didn't realize it has been so long since I posted. Well, no time like the present! It is the middle of August here in south Georgia and it was 91 degrees outside today! Let's just say it was hot and muggy. My grandson had a birthday party this past Saturday and my daughter wanted me to applique shirts to give for the present. She found a great deal on shirts and told me it was a construction theme birthday. After looking through my MANY designs, I realized I didn't have any construction designs. So off to my favorite online designers I went.

Planet Applique

has great designs and I found two there that I liked. The third design is a Bible verse design from

Applique Corner

. They have great designs for the Christian Faith. Here is a finished picture of all three shirts. Please excuse the quality of the picture, it was taken in terrible lighting.

Even though, I stayed up to 1:00am stitching the appliques, I think it was worth it. They turned out great!

On a lighter note, what do you do when you find a flaw in a towel and it is too late to send it back to the manufacturer? Why, monogram it for my grandson, of course! Isn't this frog character hooded towel adorable with his name on it?

My grandson loves the character hood and the little triangle pockets for this hands. Really, the towel in way cuter than in the picture. You can find other adorable hooded towels at

New Applique Designs

The Polka Dot Store

The world of applique designs has really exploded in the last year or so. There are tons of great new digitizers coming up with super cute designs and I can't wait to start stitching some out for you. I've recently purchased designs from 

Applique Cafe

and 

Applique Corner  .

I would love to know what you like about applique and what you would like to see them stitched on. I'm so excited about this and will post pictures when I get some of them stitched out. In the meantime, I'll post a picture of  "fred" bringing his new baby gossling to the bird feeder for the first time. Cute!
