sequin heart shirt // refashion

sequin heart shirt--alternative to the sweater
Today's DIY was so quick and simple that I'm kicking myself for not doing this sooner. It seriously took maybe 20 minutes, and that mostly was because I was super picky and my sewing machine was being finicky.

This could be considered a Valentine's Day craft, but I picked strictly non-V-day colors so it could be worn year-round. It'd look great either way: your choice!
The supplies couldn't be simpler: Shirt that fits you well and fabric for the heart (my heart fabric came from a too-short sequin shirt, but any contrasting fabric would do!)

I cut a heart shape out of the sequin fabric (like elementary school, folding it in half and cutting out a mirror image) and pinned it in place on the shirt. A quick pass through the sewing machine, and I was done! Cute, right?

It reminds me of these (more pricey) versions:
gold // pink // black // red
light pink // copper // red

  1. This is too cute! I've got a yard of lace laying around that I intended to use for another project, but I could totally do this with it.

  2. Well that couldn't be easier or cuter!! Love it and so many options with different fabrics!
