Doing a Boden

I love the clothes at Boden, particularly for kids. 
Their designs are bright and colourful, a little quirky and cheeky and slightly retro. 
Every time I look, I ooh and ahh over their cute little designs and fabrics.

Boy's Top here 

 Girl's top here.

Ruby (5) and I were looking at the website the other day 
and we decided we'd *try* making a version of our own. 
Within 30 mins we were laboriously snipping and matching fabrics.
This is what we made!

It probably won't last a wash in the washing machine. 
We had fun and she wore it to school the next day, 
waggling her tummy so that the bird's legs swished. 
That's what was important, after all!
