I’m new to this HEMA thing. In case you haven’t heard of it before now either, it’s a Dutch lifestyle brand that launched in the UK this year (there are now three stores in and around London, but you can buy everything online) and it is an absolute must-visit for anyone mildly interested in lovely stationery or stylish things for the home. Oh and did I mention it’s super cheap?
A couple of weeks ago, I was invited down to their London Victoria store for a festive shopping event and found these – iron-on stars costing just £4 for a pack of six.
Iron-on involves absolutely no sewing skills, so I thought this would be one quick and easy way to add a bit of interest to a simple striped top. A little bit inspired by my favourite – but not so good for my bank account – Chinti and Parker knits.
This was the tired but useful top I decided to reinvent.
I decided to just use the navy and white stars, plus the yellow randomly positioned on the front, back and on each elbow.
Once you have found the position you like, place a piece of A4 plain paper over the top of them and iron the paper for approximately 30 seconds. Seriously, could not be easier.
I still have the green stars left so am thinking about adding them onto an old grey and white long-sleeved tee shirt of Charlie’s.
A wardrobe update for just £4 – bargain.
