CUTE!! Easy DIY Heart Shirt

It started with cleaning out all the kids clothes. This flannel went through both my boys and little girl. It's one of the perks of having boys first. The hand-me-downs, as long as they aren't raggedy by then, can usually cross over to the little miss! I always have grand ideas of upcycling clothes and so I stash piles of them for those "someday projects". But let's be real. I absolutely suck on a sewing machine. That's my mother's expertise, but she lives 500 terrible miles away! But this one, even I could handle!!

I cut a heart shape out of the back of the flannel shirt and then added little slits to make it have a distressed appearance.
The key to covering imperfections? Distressed! Then nobody notices the less than perfect project. Cuz if I'm on a sewing machine, it is definitely going to be less than perfect!!

I sewed around the outside of the heart, so the stitching was on the outside.
Then I did something I regret. I tried to cut little ties in the front to knot it.
I kept messing up and the shirt kept getting shorter. Now, I've had three kids. Nobody wants to see a shirt that doesn't cover "that". Nobody. But there was no going back, and it DOES cover as long as I don't lift my arms too high, so it is what it is.

And this is me unashamedly putting a plug in for that corduroy black living room makeover!

Now it's your turn! Everyone has a container of stuff that needs to go to Goodwill. But DOES it need to go to Goodwill? Better give it another once over and see what you can create! :)
