I had been looking for a cute valentine shirt for Elise, but wasn't having much luck. Everything I saw was either ugly or wasn't available in her size, so I decided to make her one.
I started with a plain white turtleneck onesie she wore under a dress for Christmas. I didn't see her wearing it again, plain as it was, so I thought we'd try to get some more use out of it.
I found these supercute heart buttons at Jo-Ann Fabric, supercute and supercheap! (For the record, the buttons were $1.38; that is $2.29 minus a 40% off coupon.) I only ended up using about half of them.
The assembly is pretty obvious; I just sewed the heart buttons onto the shirt. Simple and easy!
The hardest part of this project may have been the lack of cooperation I got from my model when I was trying to figure out where the hearts should go.
These photos don't quite capture the serious bed head she was sporting.
P.S. This should go without saying. These buttons are tiny and may present a choking hazard, so keep an eye on those babies.
