Mini Boden Inspired Heart Applique T-Shirt


mini boden heart applique shirt

I’m not usually a holiday dresser….no pumpkins for Halloween, no holiday sweaters for Christmas but for some reason the Valentine motif sends my heart a flutter.

For each of these t-shirts I cut out a paper heart template, traced it on various shades of felt, and then cut and pinned them in place.

Fortunately come February, there’s a wide array of cute clothes in every price point to satisfy any heart-lover.

And since unlike pumpkins, hearts are always in season, for less than $10 (and only 10 minutes) you could use a few of these in a rainbow of colors to inject a little love into your little one’s wardrobe year round.

Thanks so much for joining me at the Fence today,

Julie Signature

At the Picket Fence Contributor Julie shared more Valentine’s Day ideas with us last week too. Did you see these darling Felt and Glitter Heart Accessories?

  1. Very adorable and so easy. If I still have little girls around this joint, I would be all over this.

    I’ll have to file it in my “I’m dreaming of being called Mimi someday” file.

  6. So cute! Thanks for sharing! Are there any special washing instructions?

    • thanks jane! i have used felt appliques on a number of my kids shirts and have had good results with washing them inside out, on gentle cycle and line-drying them. even the shirts that have snuck their way into the regular wash cycle have been fine. i’ve noticed some pilling on the really large felt appliques, but the small hearts haven’t shown any pilling yet. the felt seems color-safe as i’ve never had any color bleeding issues. good luck!

  7. So cute appliqations, love those hearts. Thank you for a wonderful idea, pretty useful for other projects also. Have a happy day

  18. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal. I must say you have done a awesome job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me on Chrome. Outstanding Blog!

  20. Superb blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring
    writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little
    lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free
    platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There
    are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any tips? Cheers!
