About a month ago I scored a few sweatshirts for $1 from Kmart during the last day of their going out of business sale. Alonzo hadn't been in Kmart in probably a decade so when we decided to go in it was on a really good day!
I knew I wanted to make a cool short sleeved sweatshirt to sport on a summer night. My inspiration for this sweatshirt was all of my guilty pleasures. I've recently become obsessed with donuts, well Duck Donuts in particular. So here's how I made it!
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
- Crewneck sweatshirt
- Patches (found on Amazon, HERE)
I'm probably the worst person when it comes to measurements. I eyeball everything. In the picture above I folded the sweatshirt in half and cut the bottom of the sweatshirt (just above the "Everlast" logo). Then I cut the sleeves just about at the halfway mark.
*Tip: I cut both sleeves together so that they will be the same length.
Next, I cut around the back of the collar of the sweatshirt. Then, I cut from the corner of the top of the collar at an angle to the lower part of sweatshirt. This creates a flap that you can fold over and trace.
Cut along the edge of the flap to make an upside down triangle.
Now it's time for the fun part! Arrange you patches and iron them down. I added steam and ironed over each patch for at least 15-20 seconds. Check to see if each patch is secured and you're all done!
