Valentine’s day shirt and a giveaway announcement

One of the best things about having a girl is making her cute clothes for every season and holiday. You could probably do that for boys too but it’s just the same. Don’t you think? Since the day we found out we were having a girl I knew I would be obsessed with hair bows, dresses, sparkly shoes, and all things pink and purple. Then when I bought my sewing machine it became a whole different ball game. That first week I think I made a pillow case dress every single night. After that I started making skirts, oh how I loved making her skirts. They weren’t anything extraordinary but I enjoyed making them in what every color/ theme I wanted. If you’ve been a reader for a long time then you may remember the skirt I made my daughter for our pumpkin patch trip. Sadly, they don’t fit anymore but have been repurposed as dress up clothes for her dolls. Another thing I enjoy making for my daughter are shirts, especially holiday shirts. My new favorite way of making shirts is by using t-shirt vinyl.

To make this heart shirt I used flocked t-shirt vinyl from Expressions Vinyl. It’s so incredibly easy to work with and I love the results. All you do is cut out your design and iron it on. Once it has cooled you peel off the top layer, sit back and enjoy your work. Now my daughter has something festive to wear on Valentine’s Day.

Now to announce something super exciting! Because you are all awesome and I have reached 1,000 followers, I’m having a giveaway week starting Monday. Yay! Thank you so much for all of your support and for reading my blog. Never in a million years did I think my little blog with 5 family members following would grow into what it is today. Crafting is something I have always loved. It’s something everyone knows for. I’m no Martha Stewart but I truly love creating, even if something simple. I’m so glad I get to share this passion with all of you. To thank you I want to host a giveaway week featuring some of my favorite companies. I’m so excited, I can’t wait. :)

Thanks for stopping by, have a fabulous day my friends!

    love the idea. Is the vinyle just regular stuff. I didn't know you could use it and iron it on shirts. Thats awesome if you can.

    Thanks again for the great idea.

    This is super duper cute! I don’t have any flocked vinyl but I do love to do freezer paper stenciling so I may make this using that technique. Thanks! How does the flocked vinyl hold up in the wash??
