Hello! I hope you are having a great Tuesday. I am having one of those days where it has been a good day but super unproductive. I guess we all deserve those once in a while. I was super tired today when I got up so I decided that I would take the advice so many people have given me, but I have
never done rarely done... NAP WHEN YOUR KIDS NAP! We fell asleep at 9:30am with me thinking 30 minutes and I will be good to go.
Guess what time I woke up?
Yes, that is 3 hours.
Yes it is unheard of.
Yes it was awesome.
But no, nothing got done at this house today!
Anyway, enough about that and on to what you want...
|Warning: Professional photographers and models were not in this $10 budget, so bear with us.|
I have a fun and EASY tutorial for you all today. Instant gratification!
(That's the world we live in right?)
|I bought these two materials in the remnants at Jo Ann, pretty gaudy and pretty awesome.|
|I used my Silhouette to cut out freezer paper hearts. You can also just cut out hearts from the material or freezer paper by hand.|
|I then ironed them onto the back of the two fabrics and cut them out.|
|I bought the hoodie above and the pants below at Wal-Mart for $10. You could also use a set you have at home.|
|I then pinned the hearts on the clothes and played |
around with the placement that I liked best.
|Here is another one I liked, but remember sleeves and pant legs this little without |
stitching by hand are kind of a pain to do.
|After you have decided on a layout, remove all layers of hearts except the base layer. Then spray the back of the heart with the glue and apply. (This is the first layer after applique, but you get the idea)|
|Here is the finished pant leg.|
|On the hoodie I put multiple layers of hearts, so after the lace one was finished I glued the sequined one on and then stitched around it.|
|If you are wondering, I did use two different thread colors ... yes even on the bobbin. Look how cute it looks peaking through the inside of the hoodie.|
|Finished product. |
Cute. Simple. Easy.
|My model trying to escape. I wish I had an after picture of that little yellow |
candle there on the right in her hands. Of course she popped the wick off and tried to eat it!
Why wouldn't she do that in a white shirt?
