Monthly Make – April

Longer, warmer days make me want to get on with my long list of sewing projects. This month I’ve made a cute tshirt for Edward from a paper doll set which I picked up at the Spring Country Living Fair. Do you remember the paper dolls you had as a child? The clothes never seemed to fit or stay on my paper dolls which is why I was happy to see one which could be used as appliques with a bit of help from bondaweb.

I ironed the little boy onto the front of a plain white tshirt and put the little outfits on the back. Fortunately Edward isn’t yet at the stage where he questions what clothes I put on him – but I hope he will enjoy wearing his personalised tshirt.
