Have you seen the Spring issue of Mini Boden? It's filled with stylish, comfy spring clothes and I'm absolutely in love. I'm not in love with a $30 shirt for my kid to kick around the back yard in.
I used this catalog as some inspiration for this shirt for Ephraim. They have a lot of ideas for knit appliques (which is a great way to re-use those old shirts that the kids have outgrown since last spring). E was really drawn to the headphones so I did my best to replicate it with what I had lying around.
I used an old t-shirt I had that still fit him for the base. Ours had a pocket on it so that had to be removed first. Then I just cut and layered my design. I pinned it into place and chose a kelly green thread to contrast the fabrics and used a stretch stitch to outline the entire thing. It's pretty easy and a fun project to work with. I'm a fan.
So is he. SCORE!
Free beats $30 any day!
