Cardigan heartification and a mini giveaway

Munchkin is still growing, despite developing a recent fussy attitude to food (oh the joys of toddlerhood), and so I decided to customise the other cheapy cardigan I bought when our local Ethel Austin was closing down (the other smaller one is here).

As the stamped applique flowers worked so well last time, I thought I'd try some more using the same technique. I chose hearts, because the stamps were about the right size, and the spotty one is my favourite. I rooted around in my scraps bag and found some t-shirt sleeves that I cut off in a fit of cutomization - the colour was perfect.

I love the results :) I had lots of t-shirt sleeve left over, so I made a whole load more applique patches. One set is in my Coriandr shop, and the other set could be yours, all yours! To get your grubby little mitts on four patches (two stripy hearts and two spotty hearts) just leave a comment at the end of this post telling me how you'd use them if you won them. I'll select a winner at random on Monday. International peeps, you can enter too.

They come with Bondaweb already on the back, so you can iron them on to whatever you want to, or iron then sew them on if they're going on a piece of clothing. They're washable at 40 degrees. Perfect for all sorts of things!


  1. They are adorable!!!! I just came across your blog (nothing better than a sunday afternoon in blog land) and I'm about to read more and follow.

    Thinking thinking.... well my first idea is... I have 2 friends that are pregnant, I could pop them on a cute little singlet and give them as gifts.

    second idea - put them in a frame and hang them on the wall.

    The ideas are endless.

  2. Wow..great designs. I think your cardigan will suit to my 7 months old kid. I love the polka design especially.
