Mary Had a Little Lamb Nursery Rhyme - Applique, Line Art

You'll have loads of fun creating your own applique rendition of that favorite nursery rhyme, 'Mary Had A Little Lamb' with swatches and remnants you pull from your fabric stash. Choose a main central fabric and a coordinating border and design an appliqué landscape filled with Mary and her frolicking flock.

Use fabric paints or markers for detail work, or sharpen your embroidery skills by stitching Mary and her lamb's features. You can even embellish the apples in the tree with hand-stitched leaves and stems for extra punch.

Mary had a little lamb, little lamb,
little lamb, Mary had a little lamb
whose fleece was white as snow.
And everywhere that Mary went
Mary went, Mary went, everywhere
that Mary went
The lamb was sure to go.
