Step 1. Procure yourself a striped shirt (doesn't have to be blue and white...think of how cute it could be in other colors, like pink stripes with a yellow anchor. The possibilities are limited only to your imagination).
Forever 21 shirt, $10.80
Step 2. Cut Wonder Under (or similar fusible) and iron onto a felt square.
Step 3. Trace an anchor (I just eyeballed the one from J.Crew). Feel free to download my anchor (at the bottom of the post) or draw up your own version. Mine measures 2 5/8" by 2 3/8".
Step 4. Cut it out and punch a hole in it.
Step 5. Try to figure out how to put your hole punch back together :) Seriously, did that just happen?
Step 6. Figure out placement and iron on the anchor (I used a medium high setting). You are going to sew it on later, but it will adhere it to the fabric so the corners don't turn up and look schleppy!
Step 7. Sew it on! I attempted to hand embroider it on, but it went downhill fast with my husband calling me to abort! abort! So I opted to just use my trusty sewing machine.
Step 8. You're Done! Pair it with a pair of skinny jeans and flats and you are ready for a day at the beach or for just shuttling your kids around all day :) Either way it will look fabulous! Let me know what you would wear it with!
