In the beginning, video games had only 16 colors and the graphics were chunky. And we were happy.
Revisit those happier, simpler times with these fun felt applique's of your favorite video game characters. Once you have all of the materials, this is an easy fifteen minute project.
I like to decorate cheap walmart t-shirts with these, but they could just as easily adorn your book bag or any other fabric surface.
Step 1: Surround yourself with
Start by picking out the character that you want to make. I provide two designs here: Ms. Pacman and Ghost.
You need to get felt sheets for all of the colors in the character. One sheet per color is plenty. You'll use a lot of black with these, so you may want to pick up a few extra. (MsPacman uses black, yellow, red/pink, and blue/black)
You also need to get some fusible interfacing. I got the kind with a sticky side. You'll need at least two sheets.
You'll also need some nice sharp scissors. There a lot of corners to cut, so you may want to use very pointy ones.
Finally, you need access to a good iron and pressing mat or ironing board.
Oh! and of course, you should have something to iron the applique to -- like a t-shirt or book bag.
