No Sew Boys Heart Breaker Tee-Shirt Refashion

I'm planning on taking special pictures of the kids for their Valentines.
I wanted each of them to look super cute!
Girls are so easy to "dress up" for Valentines day.
Anything with lace, ruffles, hearts or glitter will do.
Boys on the other hand can be a little harder, there isnt a big market for "cutesy" boy clothes for V-day. 
So Mommy Made him a special shirt for Bruce for Valentines day!
Its so simple YOU TOO can make one for your little heart breaker!

Step 1: Use paper to cut out a heart, and cut a zig zag through it to make it "break"
Step 2: Place it on the shirt to get an idea of the size in case you need to trim it down. 
Also make sure you have enough red fabric. There should be at least a 1/4 inch past the heart on each side.
Step 3: Remove red fabric and pin down your heart template to front of shirt and trace with pencil.
Step 4: Cut a hole in the middle of one side of heart, then continue to cut around pencil lines.
Do the same for the other side of the heart.

Step 5: Turn shirt inside out, and place cardboard between shirt to protect from sticking together!
Step 6:  Add liquid stitch, do only one side at a time to ensure no folding.
Step 7: Carefully add the red fabric (one side at a time)
Step 8: Trim excess red fabric, leave and let dry for about 30 minutes.

Step 9: Flip right side out
Step 10: Grab Puff Paint and Decorate I thought adding a "stitched" look would be cool and rugged. 
But you can get created and design it how you want! :)
Step 11: Add your word(s) let dry over night!

My handsome little man! :)
We thought it looked a little more "manly" with the layered shirt look.
So he just threw on a long sleeve shirt to go under, but I am sure black would look good too.

Come back tomorrow to see the special Valentine's Day shirt I made for Kiah!
