After seeing some adorable applique shirts for children, I was inspired to put together four theme-y shirts for our for little loves this Valentine's Day. There is no shortage of tutorials on simple sewing for this project to be found on the internet. I used the instructions given by Couture Parties. Basically, they just explain how to use Steam-a-Seam, and actually the same instructions can be found on the package. I did choose to go the step further by finishing our shirts with a zig zag stitch - which I think looks pretty cute! I drew our designs (tie, guitar, and heart) free hand, but I'm guessing it would be just as easy to find templates for each of these designs somewhere else on the internet. I'm thinking this is my favorite sewing project to date and I am looking forward to making more special shirts for future occassions.
