Heart Appliqued Leggings (No-Sew)

My Missy had ripped a hole in one of the knees of her denim-colored leggings.  Rather than toss them out, why not add a little heart applique to patch the rip?  It’s a perfectly sweet addition to the leggings for Valentine’s day, but really, hearts are cute any time of the year!  Best of all this project takes very little time and is no-sew!

Make these adorable Heart Appliqued Leggings for Valentines Day- NO SEWING!

Aren’t they cute?  And so easy to make!

To Make These Heart Appliques, you need:


Step 1: Pre-wash and dry your felt.


Step 2: Measure the area where you will put the applique.

(Mine was 3 3/8 inches wide by 3 inches tall.)


Step 3: Draw and cut out 2 hearts to fit your measurement.


Step 4:  Apply the EZ Steam according to package directions and cut out the hearts.

Step 5.  Iron the hearts to the fabric.

Step 6. (optional)  Use embroidery floss and sew around the edge of the heart.

This step adds about 30 minutes to the project if you’re using store-bought leggings. (Having to work in and out of the legs is more time-consuming than a flat piece of fabric.) But it makes a huge difference in how they look.  

The red stitches added a fabulous extra pop of color.  (I recommend it if you have the time and supplies on hand- you can get it done during one episode of your fave TV show.)
