KCWC - Day One...confessional

I have to admit, right off the bat, that I cheated a bit....I've also copied someone else's work, but more on that after. I cut out these appliques on Friday...but I sewed them on the tees I bought from Target, this morning. I LOVE the Mini Boden catalog. I drool over it every time a new season arrives. I also say to myself, and any one else who will listen, or pretend to, that I can recreate most of the designs that I love , myself. So, I've taken the plunge and knocked off two of the latest Mini Boden applique tees. These are the last two items I had left to sew for my littlest girl's summer wardrobe. They will go with a couple of pairs of shorts I've made for her. Now I am on to the big girl's new clothes. Pattern making commences tonight :)


  1. those shorts are to die for, i love them!

  2. Oh man, those new Oliver + S shorts are soooo cute! They REALLY make me want to break my "no buying new stuff" rule, haha!

  3. Kayanna, the Oliver & S shorts were really fun to sew too...I say rules are made to be broken ;)

  4. I have been wanting to try my hand at this forever...but was afraid of fabric raveling! Did you handcut the images? Use any product to prevent fraying? Any details or tips would be awesome....I am almost ready to try but would love to learn from your trial. thanks!!!
    Olivier & S is my friend Liesl- isn't she incredibly talented??!! LOVE her! She got me back into sewing (we used to work/knit together)

  5. hi I would love to know what u used to cut them out? thanks!!!
