A little Valentine

Don't worry! I'm not going to show the scary monkeys face. I just had to show you, I made something to go with her, something........not so scary!
I decided to make my daughter a valentines shirt. I drove myself over to Walmart and found this plain white one for $3!

I used wonder under to applique them and and then sewed around the letters!


It's not perfect, but it'll do! It was so fun to make, I even made one for my two nieces!

Very cute!

What is Wonder Under?? I usually use heat and bond lite for my applique. I have never done applique on clothes, but have been meaning to give it a try. I was thinking of appliquing a "6" on a shirt for my daughter's b-day. I would love to know more about wonderUnder....thanks!

So cute! I'm so nervous to applique on a shirt...I just know my sewing machine and I won't get along and I'll end up botching it up!

Very cute! By the way, I thought the monkey was cute too. I asked Travis what he thought and he agreed with Corwin :(
We found a house on the other side of the freeway from you. It is technically in Layton. We were ready to put an offer on it, then it sold. I was so bummed. Fate can still make us neighbors again, don't worry.

Those shirts are so cute. Did you hand or machine sew around the letters? Mimi PS Anytime you need a break come on over and sit in my peace and quiet.

I love those shirts! How fun is that. My daughter would die if I did something like that for her. I am not a big sewer, but I might try this!

Kristal and Jason said...

Those are so cute! I was also wondering what wonder under is and if you hand sewed those on? Is wonder under better than heat and bond?

This turned out so cute! If only I had a girl to make one for. I also thought the little monkey was adorable and I can't wait to make a fabric initial for my home! Thanks for all the fun ideas!

Nicole, I think the monkey is darling!!! I love the LOVE shirt as well. Hmmmmm I wonder if I could make one.

I love that sweet appliqued shirt! I just got a new sewing machine for Christmas with a new stitches on it, and I have been wanting to make some little appliqued onesies/tees for my little girl Amelia, and some matching stuff for our new baby on the way. Your's turned out so beautiful...I'm inspired! What is Wonder Under???? I'll have to find that... Have a great Sunday tomorrow!

Amber said...

Very cute! Did you hand stitch around the letters or did you machine stitch it? I love that your daughter has a cute shirt to wear for Valentine's day that is homemade and not commercial. It's precious.
