The inspiration for this skirt came from this tutorial at Craftiness is Not Optional. I followed the tutorial exactly and loved how incredibly easy it was! I chose to use a different pattern for the reverse applique. I searched for "heart line drawing" and once I found an image that I liked, I simply printed it at about 50% for the big heart and 30% for the two smaller hearts. Then I cut them out of some grey knit I had laying around and followed Jessica's method for reverse applique.
The applique on the shirt is cut out of the remnants of the t-shirt used to make the skirt. I drew up some block letters on the computer, printed them, and traced them onto the knit. I used fusible interfacing on the back of letters, but cut it slightly smaller than the knit letters because I wanted the edges of the knit to wear when I washed it.
The red t-shirt is Jerzees brand in a size adult XS from Joann's and the grey and white striped t-shirt is a size 2T from Old Navy.
Talk about a versatile outfit! It even goes with big brother's shoes and the lime green sleeping bag :)
