DIY Heart Cutout Top!

How to make your very own heart-cutout shirt (or any other item of clothing!)

Difficulty Level: Total beginner
Time to Finish: 10-20 minutes

I wanted this tutorial to be a really quick & simple way to upcycle/cute-ify your clothing. Both because beginners will find it easy to do, and also because I have exams to study for and couldn't spend all day sewing ;__; (Wish me luck!)
 You can sew around the edges of the resulting cutout if you want extra durability - but it's not necessary! The heart will hold its shape thanks to the interfacing behind it.
ps I don't 100% recommend using velveteen/napped fabrics like I did, just because the velveteen gets a little bit crushed & you end up with an outline of where you ironed! It's not *super* noticeable but if I do this again I'll be using non-nap fabrics (so like everything that isn't velvet, corduroy, suede etc) instead. T-shirt (jersey) material will work really well - just make sure that it's stretchy and won't fray!

  1. It sucks that the velveteen didn't work well after being ironed but this colour and fabric combo is sooo gorgeous! Seriously love how it looks on you Annika <3
    Btw good luck with your exams! :)

  2. It might be very easy, but I am very talented to screw things up:D

  3. Could you do a make thrift buy for a jabot? I can't find a good one online

  4. Hello! What about this:

  5. Could you do the same with the Superman logo?
