It’s no secret that I adore dressing my kids in cute boutique style clothes on the cheap. In fact now that I have learned to do embellish clothes with applique it’s gotten even worse!! Ha Ha.
Every time I see Mud Pie designer baby clothes I swoon. They are so darn cute. I was inspired by these two outfits to figure out my own version. These retail about $30.00 each from retailers who carry Mud Pie.
I started with a plain tunic style white top I found on clearance at JC Penny for $3.99.
Hobby Lobby had this great ruffle trim on clearance for $.59 a yard! Then I used my left over Wonder Under and fabric scraps. I came up with an anchor template and used that to applique it to the shirt. Click here for my tutorial on Wonder Under. Here is my anchor template I am sharing with you all. Lina’s Anchor Template
My little boy needed a shirt too so I made him a red crab and sewed on buttons for the crab’s eyes. Here is my template for the crab for you to use as well. Lina’s Crab Applique Template
I hope you liked my inexpensive Mud Pie inspired toddler tops! I was able to spend less than $7.00 on mine.
