Since I have been doing so many girl designs, it is high time for the boys to be represented. Here are a few designs that I have been doing with boy themes.
Cute dinosaur applique from http://www.appliquecafe.com/. I used green seersucker for the applique.

Mouse shirt for a customer who is going to Disney World for the Animal Kingdom. Zebra and hot pink look really good together! Mouse applique from http://www.stitchontime.com/. Disney font from http://www.embroideryfontshop.com/.
Princess shirt with crown applique from http://www.appliquecafe.com/. I added the word princess, that is not part of original design. I used minky dot fabric on the top and bottom of the applique. Can you tell I really like the minky dot fabric?! I seem to be using it on all my appliques lately.
Tip on using the minky dot: always use a sticky stabilizer on the back of the minky dot before appliqueing. It keeps it from stretching or moving in the applique process. Also DO NOT use a iron on the minky dot, it melts it and it loses its softness.

Turkey applique from http://www.emblibrary.com/ with Curlz font and Christmas tree applique from http://www.sewforum.com/ with Curlz applique.
Here are some new designs I have been working on! I love using minky dot fabric for appliques! The kids seem to like it also, since it feels so soft.
Cherie applique from http://www.jolsonsdesigns.com/ with brown minky dot fabric. Apex font from http://www.apexembdesigns.com/.
Bird applique from http://www.sewforum.com/ also with brown minky dot fabric. Pinafore font (can't remember where it came from)
Purse applique from http://www.ginabugs.com/. IfI had a little girl I wouldn't want to part with this shirt! It turned out so cute! Pink minky dot fabric on top part of purse with Curlz font initial.
