DIY Heart Belly Top

Two more days till Valentines Day! I'm not sure exactly why I am so excited but I think it might have something to do with the love that's growing in my belly! I'm 18 weeks now... almost halfway! Hard to believe!

Anyway I thought I would show that love by updating an old sweater of mine!

Top, scissors, sewing machine or needle and thread, material for heart

I began by cutting this heart out the old school way. Folding a square piece of fabric in half and cutting like you did in elementary school. I cut it really big at first so I could adjust it to fit the sweater. This flannel is from an old dress I had!

Then I pinned it into place on the front of the top.

Warning I am not the best sewer in the world. In fact it aggravates me because I can't hardly sew a straight line but I took my time and adjusted the sweater around the sewing machine as I went very carefully!

What do you think?


  1. Such an exciting time and your belly is so cute :)

  2. Its perfection for a growing belly!

    I'm sure baby loves it.
