I had seen this shirt made here several months ago and I have been dying to try it.  Finally, I was in target and they had some T-shirts on clearance for $2.24.  My mom was with me and she got a shirt in her size and so did I.  Then I bought the extra large shirt to use for the ruffles on the shirt.
I made a 2 1/2 inch heart, traced it on the XL shirt and cut them out 2 at time.  I used about 12-14 heart per shirt. After I was finished with all of the cutting I started placing each heart one at a time.  I hand stitched about 3 times to hold it secure.  Then started placing them next to each other.  The closer they are the fuller it will look.

I continued bunching them up and sewing until I got to the point on the neck that I thought looked good.  I am very thrilled with the finished product.

Can you tell I was taking the picture? Next time you are out look for cheap shirts that you can fix up.  I made 2 of these for $6.75.


  1. I love it! You better make me one!!!!

  2. I love this shirt! I can't wait to try and make one for myself!
