    Thanks again for all the nice comments, everyone! You’re too kind.

    I’m intrigued by the two of you who saw people wearing these. Did they look handmade? I’m just wondering if they saw my tutorial and followed it (squeal!!!) or if someone is selling something similar.

    Or maybe you guys saw me wearing mine???

    Thanks so much, everyone. And thanks, SMS, for linking to my tutorial.

    Yes, Katie, I agree–I think making them oversized is key.

    Marcia, I sometimes applique on my kids’ clothes to cover stains. Here’s my post from when I made the bunny shirt:

    My daughter likes to layer that shirt under a dress “so it looks like the bunny is hopping out of the dress.” ;)

    And here are more pictures of the badges and links to more of my Valentines projects:
