What type of T-shirt to use for Applique?
A high quality t-shirt without a lot of stretch is really the best type. I got this t-shirt at Hobby Lobby for a few dollars. For a white t-shirt it is surprisingly thick and not see through!
Stretchy fabric makes it a bit more difficult to sew on. If you use a stabilizer it is not impossible though! I’ll explain more about what a stabilizer is in the instructions.
What Kind of Fabric for the Applique?
The best fabric for applique is one with a bit of structure. I like to use the fabric that you find in the fat quarters or quilting fabric. There are so many pretty prints and you can get something very pretty for only a few dollars.
You can choose a thicker fabric or even felt. Just make sure it is safe to iron.
