My first attempt at applique! I wanted to make something original to donate to my son’s high school baseball team’s silent auction. Burlap garden flags are so popular right now, but I wanted colorful. I designed my flag and made a pattern. I loved the chevron material and wanted to use it for the background. The school colors are purple and gold, hence the purple “A”. I machine stitched the applique pieces on with a zigzag stitch, and on the baseball I embellished with some hand embroidery fly stitching.
I also made some spirit finger gloves and a purple and gold fleece tie blanket to make the Ultimate Fan Package!
My husband gets upset when I spend time making things for other people. I rarely make things for myself. He was the highest bidder in the silent auction and bought my Ultimate Fan Package! Sweet man…I love it!
