Love button T-shirt

Update a simple shirt with heart buttons and a little creativity.

Love button T-shirt

You will need

  • plain white T-shirt
  • heart buttons, available from The Flower Spot
  • elastic string in colours to match buttons
  • embroidery needle
  • scissors

To make

  1. Lay the shirt out and arrange buttons in desired design. Take a photo on your cellphone or digital camera to refer to as you work. Alternatively, mark button positioning with tailor’s chalk.
  2. Remove the buttons and start sewing each one in matching elastic string, following your photo as a guide for the button placement. Hang up and steam to remove creases.
