Appliqued tank tops for granddaughters 2015 by Speattle
Embroidery & Embellishments
These are 3 little tank tops that belonged to my own daughter when she was little. They were purchased in the 1980s.
I don't know why I saved them, but I did and aside from a few stains, they are in wearable shape.
So, for the two butterfly applique shirts, I placed butterflies to cover the stains. The kitty shirt didn't have stains, but I just wanted to do something fun to an otherwise very plain little tank top. I think my 2 year old granddaughter will love the picture of the kitty in glasses.
After embellishment, I use a soft tricot fusible product on the back to cover the stabilizer.
The two striped ones fit my 2 year old granddaughter and the solid pink one fits her 4 and 1/2 year old sister.
I added an additional butterfly to the yellow shirt. Cut from some print fabric that I used to make her a skirt earlier.
