- 1 long-sleeved t-shirt, washed
- fabric scraps in pink & gray (enough for a few hearts and rosettes)
- Heatn Bond Ultra Hold Iron-On Adhesive
- misc buttons
- thread, light pink & gray
- embroidery floss, dark pink
- alligator clips (for the hair accessories)
- misc lace, ribbon, or beads
- hot glue
The following day, I decided that the hearts weren't enough. I added buttons to the gray shirt, and stitched them on with dark pink embroidery floss. To the light pink shirt, I added a fabric yo-yo made from the pink & gray damask with a button stitched on top, also with the floss.
Once the shirts were completed, I started on the hair accessories. For each, I used fabric leftovers from the hearts to make rosettes, yo-yos, and a ruffle. I added a ribbon heart (from my Etsy Valentine's clips), some lacy trim, and a clear heart shaped bead. I used hot glue to attach the various pieces to felt & the alligator clips.
Here are the two finished shirts and hair accessories. What do you think?
Still need a Valentine's Day clip, or just like heart-theme accessories? Take a look at the collection available in Violet's Buds Etsy shop!
