I Need More... Magazine Inspiration [Heart T-shirt]

I've made lots and lots of embellished onesies and t-shirts in my day.  And I'm always on the lookout for a new variation of something to stitch onto them.  Simply Handmade had a darling version in their Feb/Mar 2009 issue (pp. 28-35).  With help from my favorite Stampin' Up Consultant and dear friend, Kasia Jackson, and her fabulous Big Shot die cut machine, we produced the scalloped circle which is the base for the design.

Simplified directions:
1) Back fabric with fusible web like Wonder Under and cut out your shape(s).
2) Pin and stitch a length of ribbon onto the shirt and fuse your shape(s) on top of them.
3) Zig zag around your shapes to secure them in place.
4) Hand stitch a button somewhere onto your design.

Notes: Target has t-shirts for $5 in quite a few colors for boys and girls right now.  Snatch them up!  They go quickly.  How many shirts a day does your kid go through in a day?  Mine?  About a million!

Great job, Teishi! I have been wanting that Big Shot die for awhile, BUT then I would have to buy a Big Shot. Think: if you give a scrapbooker a new die, she'll need a machine to go with it.
