The T-shirt challenge has inspired me to work with knits.  My new daughter-in-law loves knits.  I was disappointed when I heard this,  because I usually work with cottons and wanted to sew her some fashionable clothes.  I am so glad this contest was going on when my kids were visiting.  I have learned that knits are great fun to work with.  We found this t-shirt on clearance and decided to add some color to it to make it stand out. This instructable will show you how we accomplished this.

Step 1: Supplies

2 Contrasting knit t-shirts;  one  with a large heart and one plain
Contrasting thread
Sewing pins
Straight edge
Puff paint optional
Sewing machine or could easily be stitched by hand

Brings to mind an old art saying that I've heard, &quot;Sometimes it's not what you add to the canvas but what you take away.&quot; <br /> <br />Very cool!
Thanks for commenting! Stay cool!<br />Sunshiine
