DIY Mommy Loves Me Shirt and Pot of Gold Giveaway

Last fall, I bought my daughter a sweet little shirt on clearance at Carter’s. She is a self-proclaimed Daddy’s Girl, so I thought a girly “Daddy Loves Me” shirt was perfect for her. Little did I know how attached to that shirt that she would be. She begged me to do the laundry if it was dirty. She wanted to wear it everyday. I guess she was trying to make a statement. Ok, everyone knows you’re a Daddy’s Girl. Hey, what about me? Remember yo’ mama? I’m about to make my own statement. Hence the DIY Mommy Loves Me shirt.

DIY Mommy Loves Me Shirt with Heat Transfer Vinyl

This is an easy heat transfer vinyl shirt. For those new to heat transfer vinyl, see my Tips and Tricks for Using Heat Transfer Vinyl. This project only takes a few supplies: a pre-made shirt and heat transfer vinyl.

Begin by cutting out the words. For crafters with a cutting tool like a Cricut or Silhouette, this will be easy. Remember- if using a cutting tool, be sure to mirror the image! Lay the words on the shirt, making certain that they are straight.

Lay a thin piece of material over the words and press with an iron set on cotton setting until the words are secure. Peel off the plastic overlay.

I added a purple tulle bow for a girly touch.

    Adorable! I’m pinning this for when I, someday (hopefully), have a little grand daughter. I have 4 grandsons so far. Thanks for sharing!

    I really love t-shirt crafts and that gold one is crazy good! This is a strange Q but did you cut the letters on gold paper then cover it with the vinyl or do they sell heat transfer vinyl in gold? I don’t have a silhouette or a cricut so that’s why I’m asking.

    Great inspirations! I want to try making custom t-shirts. Thank you for sharing and thank you for the wonderful chance to win!

    That is so sweet! I miss the days that my boys were young enough that they would wear a shirt like that. Hopefully your super cute shirt convinces her that it is just as fun to be a Mommy’s girl! 😉
