Ok, well I guess she’s my 2nd Valentine since I think Scott has to technically be my first Valentine!
It’s FRIDAAAAAYYY!!!! I wanted to share with you a cute (and easy) shirt I made for Emily for Valentine’s Day!
Here’s how I did it!
- Craft cutter (I used my Silhouette)
- Heat ‘N Bond (or other fabric interfacing)
- Fabric of choice
- Shirt (I got mine at Hobby Lobby for $3)
- Scrap paper (optional)
Then in Silhouette Studio I created my design. It looked a little something like this:
I cut out the L, V, and E on the pink fabric using my Silhouette! I cut the heart separately on some pink polka dot fabric, using the same method.
I still use the cutting mat just for extra “security” even when I’m cutting vinyl and fabric even though I don’t think you have to.
Wait…..let me back up! Of course, before I ever even cut the fabric I did a test cut with some scrap paper and placed it on my shirt to make sure I liked the size, spacing, etc.
Looks good to me! Ok, now back to the fabric…..
So after I cut the fabric, I peeled the paper backing from the Heat ‘N Bond off the back of the fabric letters and ironed them down to my shirt. I tilted the heart a little bit. I kinda like it that way!
Now, Heat ‘N Bond is great and I love it dearly. However, it has been known to peel up on projects I’ve done in the past (hhmmm….could be user error?? Naaahhh…we’ll blame it on the Heat N Bond). So, I stitched along the outsides of the letters with some light pink thread just to make sure they stuck!
And here’s my little model sportin’ her new duds…..
Love it! I can’t wait for her to wear it on Valentine’s Day!
Have you been creating any goodies for Valentine’s Day? I must admit, I don’t really decorate my home for Valentine’s Day (just a flag and wreath for the porch), but I like doing little projects like this for these types of Holidays!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a GREAT day!
