Default Re: Trying to make an applique tshirt

I make "spirit" shirts for my dd and girls at their schools. I iron on wonder under, cut out the letters (we use a LOT of the glitter dot fabric like they use on the cheer bows) and then iron onto the tshirt..I have been using fabric dimesional paint to outline the letters to make them "pop", but if you put them in the dryer the paint cracks, so I have been working on sewing the edges..i use a regular sewing machine set to the middle-sized zigzag stitch and go around the edges...and u can buy the tear-away stabilizer and put underneath...the only trouble i am having is finding an embroidery hoop that will fit under the foot of the machine....HTH
