Embellish Your Outer Wear with the 'Wow!' Factor
The Zuni Bear Fetish in Native American Culture has been around for quite some time, and while it's common to see the fetish made into jewelry and eabrings, its colorful and unique minimalist style lends itself particularly well to DIY appliques that can be sewn on denim shirts as well as blue jean denim jackets. This is one of the prettiest embroidery patterns I have come across in the western-southwestern category I've seen so far and makes for an easy patch to sew on the back of a jacket.
If you are one of the many that enjoy the western and southwestern culture with it's vibrant history and colorful artifacts, this is one quick and easy way to turn part of your wardrobe into a unique western colorfest. The west isn't dead yet! Each Zuni bear design itself is approximately 10.75 inches wide from left to right and approximately 5.75 inches from top to bottom.
Each design can easily be stitched to a sweatshirt, shirt or jacket by spraying water soluable glue to the back of the bear, then press firmly to the back of the shirt or jacket. Select a matching color to the 'U' at the bottom of the bear and top stich next to the 'U'. Select a matching color for the arrow and top stitch next to the arrow along it's entire length. This will secure the bear to the garmnet. In color of your choice, zig zag a close, tight edge around the outside edge of the zuni bear. Crop close to the zig zag stitching.
