Superman-Girly-Tee (13)
Super easy tee shirt applique technique I made for a friend.  Once I made all the guys Tees & Superman capes I knew it was time to outfit Mom in something Super but PINK  =)


  • Tee Shirt
  • Contrasting Knit Remnant the size your desired applique.
    (Sometimes the easiest way to get the color you want is to buy a clearance tee).
  • Disappearing Ink Pen
  • Template to Trace. (I printed this Superman Logo and cut this out with an exacto knife)
