An Appliqued Birthday Shirt for My Little Princess

I discovered this new product (new to me) called Heat N Bond. Then I found a hot pink shirt at
I used my new Cricut machine to cut out the crown and ironed it on the pink shirt. There's no sewing according to the packaging on the Heat N Bond so I'm anxious to see how it washes.

 It was really easy to make. I just cut a 6 x 12 piece of fabric and a a 6 x 12 piece of Heat N Bond. Then I ironed the fabric to the Heat N Bond. I let it cool then sent it through the Cricut machine (on the cutting mat of course). Then you peel off the backing and stick it to the shirt. Iron it again. And that's it! No sewing.

Now hopefully Sophia will cooperate and wear it on her birthday. Or at least her birthday week. :)
