The Winner of the Valentine Hearts is comment #17, Jenny!!! Congratulations Jenny, I hope you'll be able to use them for at least a few days!
This isn't much of a tutorial. I pretty much just used the same technique on this shirt as I have on all the other applique shirts that I've made. So if you want better directions just click on my side bar on one of the shirt tutorials.
Here are the hearts that I used. I almost feel silly posting them, since I'm sure your all very capable of making a heart, but maybe this will save you some if you want to make a valentine shirt for one of your kiddos. Just click on the heart picture for the actual size. I used the bigger hearts for my daughter shirt which is a size 7/8. The smaller size hearts are for maybe a 5T or smaller. (Ok, so I just clicked on the hearts and they were huge, sorry, maybe you can play around with them and get them a size you would like.)
Just a couple hints, first I sewed the ric rac on with a regular straight stitch and then I zig zagged over it. Also I started and stopped the ric rac where the pink heart touches the blue, then you don't have to worry about raw edges.
In other news, my baby is growing way to fast, but oh, he is so sweet and cute. He has become a thumb sucker and I don't care what people say, I think it's wonderful. It's so cute, and he is such a happy baby.
My twin sister is moving to Canada tomorrow. Currently she lives maybe 2 minutes from me. I'm soooooo sad. I don't think twins should move away from their other half, it just isn't right. It's funny, in High School we weren't that close and then for college she went to Ricks College in Idaho and I went to Snow College in Utah, probably 12 hours away from each other, and I could have cared less. But the last 6 years we have lived always within 20 minutes of each other and I've loved it. Our kids play together and our families hang out a lot together. I will miss her so much!
