A Heart Applique T-Shirt for Valentine’s Day

I made these heart applique shirts yesterday as Valentine’s gifts for Maia and Daphne. While they were last minute in execution (and luckily very quick), I intended to make them for quite a while now.

How to Make a Heart Applique T-Shirt



1. Gather fabric for applique T-shirt

Find any outgrown shirts or fabric you have laying around. The appliques are simply floral knits from old baby shirts that Daphne has outgrown.

2. Cut out fabric heart & sew on T-shirt

I cut hearts from the material and sewed them to the T-shirts, skipping the Wonder Under I often use.

3. Add extra decoration

I added some pink rick rack trim along the edge for extra girly decoration. Ribbon or lace would also be nice.
