DIY Toddler T-Shirt Dress, Featured Etsy Shop!

Hope you all have been great!  I have been busy with CRAZY CRAFTS!

So off my last Blog post I had mentioned my Disaster #1.  The Failed Snap T-Shirt!!!  Well, I decided to cut the snap off which left a hole in the center of the shirt!  I didn't know what to do with the shirt so I thought back to an idea that I had seen before, which was someone who too fabric and cut it into the shape of a bird then sewed it onto the shirt!  It was a cute idea, however I didn't really want to spend that much time sewing!

  Here is what the Shirt looked like once I finished what I wanted to to cover the hole.  (step by step instructions will follow.)

Step one:  Take a T-Shirt of any size, mine was a 2T which had a hole in the center!!!
Step Two:  Find Fabric with a large pattern to cut out,  cut a Sqare out around pattern.
Step Three:  Cut the same size square of UNDER WONDER.. (yes I said under wonder, not underwear.)
Step Four:  Place Pattern right side up on rough side of Under wonder.
Step Five:  Place hot Iron (setting Wool) on top of pattern for 15-20 seconds.
Step Six:  When the fabric has cooled pull off the paper on opposite side of Underwonder
LAST STEP:  Place the Pattern (right side up) on Shirt,  Make sure it's where you want it and set iron on top for another 15-20 seconds.  Once it's cooled you are DONE!!! 

Now I went another step further.  I had a sewing pattern for a cute skirt.... Now I know I said I didn't want to sew, but I just thought it would make a cute dress, so I had to!!!  I already had the Fabric flower in the same pattern.

I used the owl fabric and cut out the skirt and obviously sewed it together very quick, then attached it to the bottom of the shirt then attached the flower to the shirt!  It would have been perfect if only I noticed I cut the front of the skirt out upside down!!!!!!!!!!  AHHH!!  Oh well it's still adorable on my precious angel!
