Embroidered Heart Tshirt Tutorial
I actually made this last year for Naomie's birthday but I totally forgot to share it. It was really easy. I made her it to wear with a pair of longies that no longer fit her. Never mind, she wears it with a pair of black leggings now. I actually love this top, it is so cute and was so easy to make! It only took me about an hour from start to finish.
I drew a heart onto a plain white top with a pencil (might I suggest you use a washable marker as I can still faintly see the pencil after tons of washes!) Then I took some black embroidery floss and started stitching short lines, using backstitch, to make my heart. I then took some lime and purple embroidery floss and made alternating lines going across the heart.
My heart is so far from perfect, in fact I don't think I actually have one straight line on this top haha. Oh well, it still looks cute on! It might have helped if I had added stabiliser but I didn't because it was the day before her birthday. As is always the case with me!!
