Today I'm sharing a fun project for adding a bit of edge to a regular boy's button down shirt. I call it the "hipster appliqué". I love the little bit of edge it gives a plain shirt. Just a little something fun to liven up a boy's wardrobe.
All you need is a button down shirt, an old t-shirt with a fun pattern on it, and a little double sided fusible web from your local fabric or craft store. I like Steam-A-Seam Lite but use whatever brand you prefer.
Peel the paper backing off your fusible web and iron it onto your shirt. I love how it looks on the back but with a smaller applique you could do something fun on the front or the sleeve.
Stitch around the edge of the appliqué. I chose a straight stitch because I like when the edges curl up a little after being washed.
That's it! Put it on your guy. Then attempt to photograph...
