Made by Me Monday - Valentine T-shirt

I wanted to make my daughter a cute Valentine's Day shirt, and I had lots of ideas swirling around:

1. collage of different shaped hearts

2. heart balloons

3. LOVE spelled out with a heart for the "O"

I also wanted to make matching T-shirts for my daughter and soon-to-be son, and I had decided on chunky initials out of coordinating fabric.

So, off to Hobby Lobby I went and bought way too many different fabrics with ideas in mind. I got home and started making ideas 1 and 3 to see what I liked best. I decided neither was the perfect shirt for sweet little Finley, so I took a break. However, I loved all the Valentine's fabrics I'd found and didn't want to give up! Back to the drawing board, and this was the result:

Large heart applique in the red polka dot fabric and chunky letter "f" in the coordinating pink and red paisley. Love it (and she does, too!)!!
