I'd seen many different reverse applique projects floating around and I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to give it a try. So here's my new and improved pull-over:
And here's how I did it:
I used this plain white men's t-shirt for the under-layer:
Cut apart to get a square of fabric:
Turn your pull-over (or whatever article of clothing you're refashioning) inside out and pin your under-layer in place with safety pins. I also used a little quilt basting spray to help hold it in place but this does make it a little harder to do the cutting-out part later on.
Turn your pull-over right side out, and you're ready to stencil on your design. I used a water-soluble pen (available at most craft stores) and these stencils (I free-handed the leaves):
Stencil on your design the way you would like it. Here's mine:
(I added a bit more after this picture was taken)
Then, carefully and with a small scissors, cut out your fleece fabric around the drawn lines - be very careful not to cut through your under-layer.
When all of your stitching and cutting is finished, you can cut any excess under-fabric from the back. Toss your garment in the washer to remove any remaining pen marks, and it's ready to go.
