There’s so many things you can do with fabric panels. You could make quilts, pillows, wall art, tote bags, etc. Today I’m sharing with you how to use the panels to make a toddler sweatshirt. To provide a reference on the sizing, the sweatshirts we used are a 2T. For bigger shirt sizes, you could add more than one animal or the entire animal shape. Jump below for the super easy tutorial.

The sweatshirt applique is so simple. Here’s what we did:

1. Using a piece of Heat-n-Bond Lite cut slightly larger than the animal head, fuse it to the wrong side of the fabric panel centered over the animal head.

2. Cut out the animal head leaving a 1/8″ seam allowance all around it.

3. Remove the paper backing from the Heat-n-Bond Lite and fuse it to the sweatshirt.

4. Using a zig zag stitch with a width of 2.5 and a length of almost 0, stitch over the seam allowance covering the raw edges of the fabric on the animal face.
