Christmas Crafts-1

The kids love to "help" me sew. In these they didnt exactly
help, but i did use their handprints lol. I managed to convince them it was helping, and it was because they turned out super cute.
First an OBV(organic bamboo velour) pillowcase with the kids handprints appliqued on it. I didnt make a tutorial for the pillowcase but there's a good one here.
ok first i cut out their handprints on iron on interfacing(not necessary but the OBV is slippery so it makes it easier)

Next I ironed the interfacing onto the wrong side of the fabric:

And cut them out:

Then appliqued them to the OBV pillowcase(i just used a zig-zag stitch on a regular sewing machine)

All done. The appliqueing took the longest.
