My 8 year old daughter wanted a special Valentine's t-shirt.  All I could find to purchase were creepy kittens in pink baskets style T's OR "single and available" style T's.  What's a Mama to do?  MAKE my own!

Step 1: Gather Supplies and Find Art

I purchased a $4 pink t-shirt and had on hand "Stained by Sharpie" fabric markers.

I then searched for "public domain" clip art with hearts until I found something appropriate for my project.

Step 2: Size It

I opened the image in a new tab and sized it up to fit the t-shirt I purchased.

Step 3: Let the Magic Begin!

Find the center of the front and mark with a pin.  Pull t-shirt over the monitor so the clip art can be seen through the fabric.  Line up the pin with the center of the heart.  Outline the pattern with fabric markers.

Step 4: Finish!!

Remove the t-shirt and fill in the design as you wish with your fabric markers.  A "cool" but age appropriate Valentine T-shirt!!!!
