Birds on a Wire

Birds on a wire is an applique I applied to the back of a gray thermal long sleeve tee. First, I applied steam a seam to one side of black cotton fabric. Then, I drew out a stencil of the birds on a wire to a piece paper and traced it onto the black fabric. I cut the shape out and ironed the fabric onto my thermal shirt. Lastly, I used the free motion sewing technique to make the decorative swirly stitches. I used several different colors of thread for the different birds which took a lot patience and time but I really love the outcome and I've received lots of compliments.

Inspiration: Modern Steamster's second issue, FREE online.
