(diy tutorial) valentine’s day mom tattoo shirt

Mom Tattoo Shirt
Ruffles, lace and frilliness, oh my! Girly Valentine’s Day creations have taken over the internet lately, like this and this and ohmygosh this. What about us boy moms? I’m not into strict gender roles, Logan owns pink diapers and a play kitchen, but these are girly with a capital G. Here’s a super easy non-frilly tutorial for the boy (and girl) moms out there. It doesn’t require any sewing and you can get it done within a one hour nap, my kinda crafting. I’ll have to show you the outtakes from the mini photo shoot we did of Logan in his Mom Tattoo shirt. Photographing a toddler is hard work yo.

Step 3: Measure the width of the heart and cut out a white felt banner a couple inches longer. Cut “V’s” at the ends of the banner.

Step 4: Measure the height of your banner and print out MOM letters that will fit within your banner on card stock (I used Hard Block font @ 150). Cut out the letters and trace them on the backing of the black felt. Cut the felt letters out.

Step 5: Iron on the mom tattoo to the shirt. Start with the heart, add the white banner, and then iron on the MOM letters last.
