As I often do, I find myself shopping online. I’m sure you never do that! 😉 On one of my favorite sites, ModCloth, I saw this super cute sweatshirt for $49.99. Ummm…. love the shirt, hate the price tag. It was also a little too floral for my tastes.

How I Made My DIY Sweatshirt

So, I headed over to Amazon where I found this sweatshirt for $20 & free shipping (affiliate linked image). If you wanted to grab an even less expensive sweatshirt, Walmart has them for around $5.

When it came today, I threw it in the wash and then busted out my handy, dandy Cricut Explore and got to work making my DIY Sweatshirt. I created a quick image in Illustrator using a font called Channel. It’s free for personal use and here’s the SVG file for you to use if you like!

I use Cricut’s black glitter iron on vinyl. Before cutting, I smoothed out my vinyl using a credit card.

Get out all the bubbles in your vinyl to ensure a good cut!

Then I reversed the image and cut it on Cricut’s black glitter iron on vinyl, weeded it, and ironed it on according to the instructions.

Time to trim the vinyl so you can make other projects!
