Hi y’all! Becca here from Sunflower Seams. This weekend my daughter and I had a fun time planning her Valentine’s Day outfit for school this year. In past years I would usually make something for her and she’d love it no matter what but now that she’s getting older she wants to be a part of the design process. We spent the morning shopping and found this t-shirt and sequin skirt on sale, then brought it home to embellish. This project is so easy even my daughter was able to help.

Heart Pocket Instructions
Step One: With your fabric wrong sides together, lay your heart pocket piece on top of the fabric and cut around the pattern piece. Repeat this step for a total of 4 hearts.
Step Two: Sew around the heart using a 1/4” seam allowance, leaving a 2” opening on the side. Clip all the curves, taking care not to clip any stitching.
Step Three: Turn right side out and press.
Step Four: Place the pocket on the front of your skirt and topstitch around the bottom half, creating a pocket.
Love Shirt Instructions
Arrange the trim on your shirt as desired. Apply a layer of fabric fuse to the felt then press it into place on the shirt. **Remember to place a piece of cardboard between the front and back of the shirt before gluing the trim to the shirt.
