Big Brothers ROCK! Tutorial

Four different fabrics (fat quarters, scraps of fabric, layer cake squares all work great).
Iron-on letters (I found mine at Hobby Lobby by s.e.i. in black)
Wonder-Under Fusible Web
Four small buttons
Coordinating Thread (I used black thread)

Start off by gathering all your supplies.

Print out the template and cut out all the pieces.

Iron-on Wonder-Under fusible webbing to the back side of all the fabric pieces you wish to use for your applique.  On the paper side of the fused pieces trace around all the cut pieces on the fabric you wish to use for each piece.

 For the letters, trace them upside down so when you cut out the pieces they are facing the correct direction.
Cut out the pieces and remove the paper backing.  Place your pieces as shown below on the shirt and iron on.  Cut out the letters to spell "big brothers" from the pre-made iron on letters and iron in place above the ROCK fabric letters.
 Using a zig zag stitch, stitch around all the pieces of the applique.
Hand-stitch on the four small buttons on the handle, two on each side.
Now wasn't that quick! All done and ready for some new big brothers to wear!
