Those Who Can, Do! Valentine's Day Edition

Have you ever noticed the shortage of cute boy clothes?  Especially around a holiday!

Christmas was pretty easy, 2 matching dinosaurs tangled up in Christmas lights surrounded by presents sweaters at Macy's, $14.99 each.  Instant cuteness!

Enter Valentine's Day. 

One very cute TooPoo (Snoopy for those not fluent in toddlerise) size 5t shirt at Target $9.99 and not a single thing in size 7.  Not one!  Nothing!  Is a kindergarten boy too cool for Valentine's day?  Pfft.  I don't think so!

Enter one awesome Mema and her laptop.

Etsy to the rescue.  But those prices!  OMG!  I refuse to pay $20+ for a shirt that won't get much wear! 

I. WILL.  NOT.  DO.  IT.

Fortunately, Etsy is an awesome inspiration for those who can.  For all others there is Visa and Master Card.

Even more fortunate is that this Mema can!

For a fraction of the price.

Two blue long sleeved t-shirts from Target on clearance for $4.88.

Some fabric scraps already at home. 

A little Heat n Bond.

A little imagination.

A pen, scissors, an iron and my trusty Singer.

Less than a half hour later, let me present....

Matching Valentine's shirts for my very favorite little boys!

Feel free to copy, I did.

What a cute idea! I did t-shirts for my daughters when they were little. I used ribbons and buttons and fabric paint and they always turned out pretty good. Just think of the money that you've saved.

Perfect! And I'm all about taking the less expensive route. Love it!

How cute! When the boys were in preschool my goal was about $5 per shirt. Why? Their clothes always got (get) ruined.
