Fancy Frugal Life: Heart Elephant Applique Top & My Valentine's Day Entry

Heart Elephant Applique Top & My Valentine's Day Entry

Pin It



My little one LOVES elephants so here's what I made for her to wear this Valentine's Day! It's an elephant heart applique top. She is completely thrilled with it!



Here's a shot of the shapes I used. They have Wonder Under (fusible web) ironed onto the back of the fabric.




After ironing onto the shirt, I added buttons for eyes and to the trunk, and then hand stitched around the edges. This solid white Gymboree top was a Goodwill $1 day score! Yay! Speaking of Goodwill...I tend to post some of my thrift store finds via Facebook so make sure to follow along there too!

















My entry table is all set for Valentine's Day with my Idea Room wreath from last year :)


I added a couple cute festive and free printables found here and here in my thrift store pedestal frames.


















I just wanted to thank you all so very much for voting for me to win a ticket to the SNAP creative bloggers conference. Although I did not win, I bought a ticket and am for sure attending!!! Hooray I can't wait :) DO I have any readers going? And can I sit with you? lol

This is darling. I'm looking for an applique for my baby grandson. I think this would be okay in boy colors, don't you? Thanks for showing us how. Linda
