One Heart-Three Tees Tutorial

I love unique t-shirts and tanks but don't like spending lots of money! What better way to transform a cheap tee than with a heart! This project makes use of the above heart shape, cut out of fabric and applied to three $5.00 shirts- three different ways!


Start by journaling on a scrap of fabric.

Cut out a heart.

pin down and sew to the surface of the shirt- I placed mine heart right in the middle


Use a fabric in different colors and cut out a variety of heart shapes.

Layer all the hearts onto the surface of the shirt- let them overlap each other.

Sew the hearts down either by hand or machine- let your stitches be messy!


Cut lots of hearts from colorful fabric- I chose pink to go on a red tank.

Sew onto one side of the shirt- layer and crinkle the hearts until a ruffle forms.
