Another quick gift idea - this one's for the shoe lover on your list, but this could be used for anyone - just change the theme.

Snazzy Shoe Gift Ideas
Designed by Joan Fee

Canvas bag or towels
Fusible web
Fabric: animal print, black
Iron & ironing surface

1. Freehand design or use clipart. Trace on paper side of fusible web. Cut out, leaving a 1/2" border.
2. Lay traced fusible web on back of animal print fabric, with paper side facing up. Iron to fabric according to the manufacturer’s instructions on packaging.
3. Repeat step #2 with shoe top, on black fabric.
4. Cut out around edges.
5. Peel off paper backing and iron both pieces to bag/towel, placing pieces of shoe together to complete image.
Option: Sew around edges of fabric with a zigzag or applique stitch.

Hi Joan,

I love these shoe projects. I'm making them for my sister for Christmas and I'm using your suggestion and using a picture from a birthday card I received to make a garden theme kitchen towel set for my mother.

Thank you for the ideas.
