Pattern: Vintage Pickup

Rather than a wardrobe full of the screen-printed popular cartoon images, we prefer quirky, apppliqué in this house. Take this vintage truck for example. We took my son to a car museum this past summer and he loves anything that has a motor in it and can appreciate vehicles from yesteryear. Fill this truck bed up with your favorite things: presents, apples, toys, a tree, etc. Or, just leave it as is, on it's way to another pick up. Happy crafting!

This pattern is perfect for any t-shirt, sweatshirt, bag, backpack, pants pocket ... any fabric surface! You may also use the pattern to create a unique scrapbook appliqué that will have all your scrapbooking buddies asking where you bought it. It's up to you if you want to tell them you actually made this appliqué from a very simple pattern.

I used Steam-A-Seam 2 Double Stick Fusible Web to adhere all the pieces onto this t-shirt. This is so easy that even a crafting novice can whip out a unique appliqué like this one in no time. Stitch around the pieces by hand or with a machine or leave it as is.

This pattern also translates very well onto heavier fabrics (corduroy, bottom weights and jeans) with felt!
