Valentine Heart Applique T-Shirt Tutorial
Remember I said I was thinking about making Mia a Valentine shirt to go with her skirt? Well I finished it tonight! I bought a red t-shirt at Walmart (I think it was around $3.50) and cut out three hearts. 1 Large white, 1 Medium pink, and 1 small red heart. Next I hand embroidered little x's around the edges of the red heart onto the pink one. I thought it would be cute to give each heart a different stitch design, so on the pink heart I did a whip stitch and on the white one just a regular straight stitch along the edges. I think it's easier to embroider the hearts to each other first-THEN embroider the largest heart to the T-shirt. All you need for this cute little Valentine Shirt is a scrap of white, pink, and red felt, pink embroidery floss, an embroidery needle, and a t-shirt. So easy and so cute!
