Gold Heart Knee Patches from Susan Petersen

Note from Design Mom: While I’m busy with the move to France, I’ve got a crew of talented Guest Moms filling in for me. Today’s second Valentine’s Day project is these adorable heart leggings from the always creative Susan Petersen.

Still trying to figure out what your gold heart loving daughter is going to wear to her Valentines Day party? Don’t worry friends, I’ve got you covered.

Supplies needed:
Leggings, I got mine from Target for $3.50
Fabric paint, I used DecoArt So Soft metallic
Sponge brush,
Freezer Paper

Begin by cutting out two pieces of knee sized hearts from freezer paper.

With a hot iron, press the pieces onto the knees of the pants.

Paint the gold hearts, I used 2 coats of paint. Either wait for the coats to dry, or use a blow dryer to speed up the process. After the paint is dry, heat set the paint by placing a piece of fabric over the painted area + ironing on top of the fabric. Wait 48 hours to wash.

Aren’t these so fun? Check out more fun projects at Susan’s blog, Freshly Picked.

  1. How cute! I would have never thought of adding that special touch, but I will definitely be going through my daughters drawer to dig out some good candidates for this project.
