Today was pink day at preschool. Luke was supposed to wear something pink and bring a pink toy. Now, I try not to assign gender stereotypes to colors. Still, my 3-year-old doesn't own any pink clothes.
So I set out to make him a Valentine's Day shirt. I thought about a heart or the word "love."
In the end I settled on a simple XO and made the X black in hopes that it would be more punk than princess.
I used raw-edged applique. Super easy. It took me maybe 20 minutes, and he was proud to wear it to school!
