In an attempt not to misplace my girliness on my boys this Valentine's Day, these are the shirts I came up with.
I used Heat 'n Bond Lite to applique the fish and their little (heart shaped, of course) fins before sewing them.
The fins are the tiniest, most intricate sewing I've done in a long time.
For the air bubbles, I cut 3 graduated, free hand hearts on freezer paper. A craft punch would be perfect for this.
Then I cut a tiny border around the remaining heart.
I ironed the first piece of freezer paper to the shirt.
And then the heart inside of that, leaving a thin, even border.
Then I painted with 3 coats of matte fabric paint. Once it was dry, I ironed the paint to set it.
Easy, sweet, and festive. And not the least bit girly!
