Lion applique

Today my second guest post at the Kids Clothes Week blog appears. It's all about embellishing shirts and sweaters, using a wide variety of techniques. Go take a look! I promise you that it's full of inspiration...
In line with my post over there, I'm showing an old project here. This lion applique was made a few years ago for B, using an old bath towel and an old yellow tee. I sewed it onto a long-sleeved H&M shirt. Simple, but cute! 
B wore it a lot, and now J loves it. He keeps pointing proudly to the lion on his chest, while making the cutest roar and saying something that vaguely sounds like 'leeuw' (lion). You should hear him, he's adorable...
I'm ending this post with two photos taken in our new attic. The renovation is done and we're currently moving everything back into place. Soon, my sewing room will be reinstalled! Yeah!
I've given up some space, but got something better in return... Lots of white walls and beautiful light. This will make taking good pictures a lot easier, as these examples attest...
Allright, that's it for today. I used all my words and inspiration of this week for the KCW post, so hop over and check it out...
