Today's DIY is one of my favorites so far. I had a hankering for a heart sweater like this J.Crew option but couldn't stomach paying for it.
Click through for full instructions.
long sleeve tee or sweater
one sheet of paper
water spray bottle (optional)
Print one of the cross stitch heart patterns provided below.
Pin the pattern to the shirt.
Cross stitch the pattern on to the shirt.
Spray the pattern with water to soften it. Tear the paper to remove.
You may think 3 layouts is a bit much, but I have my reasons. The first is the most similar to the J.Crew inspiration sweater. The second is the one I used. It is the most simple and requires the least amount of stitching. The third would work well if you are busty (nursing mamas included), because as the sweater stretches horizontally, it obscures the heart a bit.

I just want you all to notice that I am actually jumping in the shot above. After years of watching Tyra tell girls to relax their faces and smize while jumping, I learned it's not so easy. I am mostly just excited I figured out my camera settings to keep it from blurring.
