wee bit of a crafty morning :: heart shirt

my emmie has show and tell tomorrow and the theme is "valentine's" we don't really have too many heart-y objects around the house. so i offered to make her a heart shirt. it took less than 10 minutes from start to finish, which somehow amazes me sometimes.

heart applique shirt

luckily we had a plain white t-shirt on hand. here is what we did ::

  • she picked out the fabric for the heart. it was a hard choice, but they both involved pink and polka dots.
  • i ironed heat n' bond lite to the fabric
  • i cut out a heart shape from the fabric with the heat n' bond ironed on
  • i ironed the heart to the shirt
  • i used my sewing machine to zigzag around the edges so they won't peel when washed
  • and there you have it! wearable show and tell.
