Simple Fun Valentine's Day T-Shirt for Girls

This is a fun and simple craft to add interest to a t-shirt.

Equipment needed:
  • Sharp scissors
  • An iron
  • Heat n Bond (purchase from craft store)
  • An assortment of at least three ribbons of varied widths
  • 8-1/2 x 11 inch piece of cardboard for your heart template
  • An old towel
  • Glue dots

suggested ribbons:
    grosgrain pinks (tulip and azelea)
    lt. pink Swiss mini dots
    white with pink argyle ribbon

1. Cut your ribbons ribbons to slightly overlap your piece of cardboard.   
    Note: I made two hearts fit on my cardboard template 
2. Cut a piece of Heat n Bond to size of the ribbons. Press ribbons onto Heat n Bond according to directions (paper down rough side up ) Protect your ironing board with old cotton cloth or tea towel while you do apply the Heat n Bond.
 Hint:  I use glue dots to hold ribbon in place until I have one end of ribbons pressed and attached.

3. Trace shape of design (hearts) onto the back (paper side)

4. Cut out shape and remove paper --now you may press and or stitch your hearts onto the t-shirt.

Think Shamrocks for St. Patrick's Day with shades of green combo, then comes the Easter Eggs!
