Cute DIY Maternity Shirt

This is a cute, inexpensive gift idea for your favorite preggo.     I bought a similar tank when I was pregnant at a boutique and they are so easy to make, now I love giving them to all my knocked-up friends. 

Supplies Needed:
Cotton Maternity Shirt (I got this one at Motherhood Maternity for $14)
Iron-On Letters such as Dritz� Iron On Letters & Numbers - White  (I got mine at Michael's for $4)


1) Cut out the letters to make the words "Head, Foot, and Tush" and arrange them on the shirt.  I looked up the correct position that babies are typically in during the 3rd trimester and placed them accordingly.  Oh yes, I did.

2) Press firmly with a hot iron on wool setting and let sit on each word for approximately 15 seconds.  Do this a couple of times.

3) Let cool and then peel off the backing of each letter and you're done!  Super Cute maternity shirt.

How cute is my friend, Jill, who is expecting Baby Mac next month?!?
