These adorable food appliqués are fun and easy to make! There are four designs – a cupcake, ice cream cone, strawberry and cheeseburger. The food can be created as simple appliqués or they can be embellished with hand embroidery, rick rack and buttons. Complete step-by-step instructions are included for the making the embellishments. If you have ever wanted to learn hand embroidery, this is a great way to get started. The pattern sizes are as follows: – cupcake is 3 3/4” x 5” – ice cream cone is 3 3/4” x 9” – strawberry is 5” x 5 1/4” – cheeseburger is 4 3/4” x 5”. The appliqué patterns can be reduced or enlarged to make the designs any size that you would like. The ice cream cone can be made as a one scoop, two scoop or three scoop design. You can appliqué the designs on t-shirts, onesies, tote bags, quilt blocks, bibs, etc.

Instructions are given to sew a machine straight stitch around the appliqué designs. Another option would be to sew a machine zig-zag or satin stitch around the edges. If you don’t have a sewing machine, you can hand embroider the blanket stitch around the edges of the appliqué pieces. Diagrams are included in the instructions for hand embroidering the blanket stitch, feather stitch and lazy daisy stitch.
