Here’s a little more inspiration for you to get your creative juices flowing when it comes to using appliques to make hand-me-downs work.  (Note:  All of the materials in these projects were either hand-me-downs or bought at a thrift store for less than a dollar prior to the Stash Bust Challenge.  None of the items were bought new.)

  • I copied the flower design from the shirt as appliques onto the capris.  Pattern for appliques and tutorial for making these capris from a T-shirt coming soon on my blog.
  • Here I made dinosaur appliques out of a too-small shirt and added them to a shirt and knee patches to make a complete outfit from jeans with holes in the knees and a thrift store red shirt.  Tutorial and giveaway of duplicate applique and patches coming soon on my blog.
