Metallic Stripe Sweatshirt
I’ve been working on a few DIY projects lately. You can tell from my last post. I have a long list of things I want to create and since I’m in a nice groove I decided to check another DIY off my list. A few weeks ago I was folding a pile of metallic stripe sweatshirts at work. While folding I debated if I liked it or not. I concluded that I like the metallic stripes but could careless for the dots above the stripes. You know me though; when I want something I will find a way to make it work. I thought I could just take the dots off but that wasn’t going to be that easy. Then I realized I could just get my own sweatshirt and apply my own metallic stripes. So, that’s exactly what I did.
- Transfer Web paper
- Metallic Fabric
- Rotary Mat
- Rotary Ruler
- Rotary Cutter
Using your Mat, Ruler, and Cutter cut a strip of metallic fabric. The size of the strip is up to you.
After you cut all you’re pieces of fabric cut you transfer web to match the size of your fabric pieces.
Next fuse the transfer web pieces to your metallic strips using an iron (follow transfer web instructions)
I decided to make my sweatshirt open like a cardigan so I cut it down the middle from the neckline.
It was pretty simple and now that I’m familiar with transfer web I plan on fusing a lot more. I want to add some more details to this sweatshirt. Not sure what though. I will keep you posted. On another note, what have you created lately? Are you working on any projects? Be sure to share you creations in a comment below.
