DIY No-Sew Pocket Tee

Happy Monday Friends! 

I'm currently sitting on the couch next to husby with the dog curled up at our feet and listening to a summer storm roll in through the rolls of thunder. 
It's bliss at the end of a long day. 

This weekend was filled with shopping, swimming & a few fun projects that I had been wanting to get to for a while now. 

I decided that since it's been all things baby around here lately, I should do a fun project for the big kiddos :) 

Little miss was shopping with me at Hobby Lobby last week and wanted something to wear with her "E" on it so we came up with the perfect, super-easy pocket tee which, thanks to Hobby Lobby, was the easiest project ever. 

I'm talking the kind of project that takes longer to open the packages than to actually put together. 
Which is great for me at the moment since I don't have as much endurance for long projects! 

Check out the cuteness of our little saturday project!!

Oh my goodness cute, right?? 

I was terrible and didn't take before pictures because, well, I mean, it literally took 2 seconds to do. 
So imagine a white t-shirt if you will :) 

And thanks to Hobby Lobby, we had all the cute supplies we needed in one aisle. 

*Plain White T-shirt
*Iron-on Glitter pocket (Hobby Lobby) 
*Iron on Initial (Hobby Lobby) 

I'm just in love with all the iron on appliques that Hobby Lobby has. 
I was super excited to find these cute pockets there & they had several really cute options. 
We chose the gold glitter one. 

And for the t-shirt and both appliques, we are talking under 10$, friends. 
Especially if you use your 40% off coupon. 

They also have great iron on 'fabric' sheets that I've bought a couple times to use with my silhouette. I'll be sharing a cute outfit I made for Baby M soon with some of the gold iron on sheets they had. 

But you can also order iron on vinyl, even flocked or patterned, offline for your cutting machine if you don't have a Hobby Lobby around or want different colors. 

So really...the instructions are self-explanatory. 

1. Wash your shirt prior to ironing on your appliques to make sure it shrinks before adding anything. 
2. Set your iron to the correct setting according to the package. 
3. Iron on your pocket first. and let cool for a few minutes. 
4. Iron on your cute initial. 

And you're DONE!! 
Easy as that :) 

And then get someone super cute to model it for you! 
Little miss was super excited about her shirt and was more than willing to pose it up for me. 

Now she's wanting me to make Baby M a miniature matching one so they can match :) 

I've gotten into more sewing lately and surprised myself with what I can do but, guys, I love a project that doesn't involve pulling out the sewing machine and is still extra cute! 

So grab your iron and get to creating :) 

Have you guys used the iron-on appliques before and loved them as much as I do?
