put a heart on it!

Hearts are all the rage in both adult and kids fashion these days. And even though Valentines Day is around the corner, I say any day is a good day to wear a heart- especially if you are a 16 month old little girl! So I've put together four SUPER fast and easy ways to add a heart to kids clothing!




I love finding ways to use clothing that is too small (but can't part with it) for Lucy. And I also love finding ways to alter new (and cheap clothing). I found some super cute tunics from here and while I loved the stripes, I wasn't crazy about the image. So I decided to cover up the image with a heart made from Lucy's old clothing. Using a little fabric glue, I glued the heart to the surface of the tunic.








I love altering a onesie or t-shirt with doodles and it is as simple as using a permanent marker or fabric marker. I filled a heart with tiny dots and yes, I used a Sharpie. My experience is that a Sharpie typically does not wash out of fabric.






Fabric paint is a wonderful supply for adding fun little details to kids clothing. I added two little hearts to the knees of a pair of white leggings. 




Stamping is just about the fastest and easiest way to add an image to fabric or clothing. I created a large heart stamp out of craft foam and used it to add a heart to a plain white onesie.

  14. Great ideas and what a cutie! Also you have long sleeve onesies in 16 month or it looks like 18 mo size?!? I'm jealous. It seems like every place up here (Alaska) only sells short sleeve ones which is rather ironic given how long winter lasts. I'm off to add some hearts to my little's clothes.
