Be my Valentine

Don't forget to check out the sewing pattern giveaway and enter! It ends friday! Tell your friends even if you don't want to join. They might love it!

In the past I haven't been much of a Valentine's day girl. I have the unfortunate luck of either breaking it off or just not having anyone for V-day. Not complaining though! I am not much for commercialized holidays anyway. However I have my little man this year and he is the only man for me.

I saw an adorable shirt in wal-mart the other day that said Eligible Bachelor. But I did not like the cheesy bowtie thing on it. Kind of made me cringe at the attempt to be cute. So I did what any other crafty momma would do. I came home and made my own shirt! 

Hope this provides some inspiration...

Bachelor for the side (only thing I wish I did here was make the letters go up the side so that you had to tilt your head to read it... Know what I mean? B at the bottom. Okay hope that made sense) 

My bug wears his heart on his sleeve. 

Shirt- $3 wal-mart
On hand- freezer paper, fabric paint, iron, adorable child. 

Total Cost: $3

How to: I used photoshop and combined images to make the heart with the arrow. I than chose a font that I liked off of I printer both images out directly onto (the paper side) freezer paper that I cut into 8x10 sheets. 

Cut out the images with an exacto knife on a cutting mat (so that you don't mess up your table). Grab up fabric paint of your choice and your iron. Iron the freezer paper onto your shirt on a low heat setting.

 Once it is all sealed apply fabric paint liberally or not so liberally if you want a distressed look. Put in a location where little fingers cannot grab it and let it dry over night. Peel off freezer paper and enjoy! (don't forget to use a pressing cloth once it is dry and iron the fabric paint to heat set it)

Enjoy! Have a awesome V-day!

Oh! That is so cute and so affordable too. Maybe my untalented self can find a way to make these too. I really love the heart on the sleeve!
