Reverse Applique

Sew... My bff, Cerise mentioned something about doing reverse appliqué to me, and I had never heard of it. I immediately looked it up, and decided I had to do it. Many birthdays are coming up sew I thought I'd try it for them. After finishing the first one, I am in love with reverse appliqué. It's very cute, and doesn't take as long (or as much patience) as regular appliqué. Here is Rob's bff's daughter, Ansleigh, modelling her pants and shirt I made for her 4th birthday. Her birthday isn't actually until the 19th, but I gave them to her early. I picked the fabric not knowing what colors she liked, but her face really lit up when she saw it, and her mommy confirmed that green is actually her favorite color right now! GO ME! :P Here she is! She is such a pretty girl too! And I learned quickly- she loves to model. Please excuse the messy background!


  1. Wow! That really looks fantastic on her! I'm going to have to try that when I'm done with my pillows.

  2. wow. that really REALLY looks good.d

  3. my daughter truly is adorable, and your outfit was a big hit. She begged to wear it to her daddys this weekend. I told thim not to wash it bc it was hand made and didn't want it to get messed up. She loves it so much. She tells everyone how her best friends mommy made it for her. It is just so cute.
