Personalized Initial Princess Shirts

This weekend my friend LaToya and I took our girls to see the theater production of Princess And The Pea. I thought that it would be cute to make the girls personalized princess shirts with their initials. This is how they turned out…

The two princesses

How I made them:

1. I downloaded this font, Walrus Gumbo and increased the size of their initials in Word and printed it (I didn’t like the bottom loop of the “B” so I printed it twice, cut out the top loop on one of the copies and then taped it on to the bottom of the other “B”)

2. Ironed “Heat n Bond” to the back of the blue fabric (which was actually an old shirt of mine) and to the yellow fabric following the manufacture’s instructions

3. Taped the printed letter ink side down to the paper side of the “Heat n Bond”

4. Cut out letter

5. Ironed onto shirt following manufacture’s instructions

6. Repeat steps 3-5 for crown

7. Sewed border around fabric to ensure it stays attached to the shirt. I used “invisible thread” (which looks just like fishing line) because I am not the best at sewing straight lines, around curves, etc…so I like to hide my stitches as much as possible!

**You could definitely add sew-on sequins or other embellishments but I am not always the biggest fan of bling so I left it off.

The girls thought the shirts were cute and were excited to be twins! 😉

All four of us girlies

Happy Sewing!
