Recently I realized that I had two sweatshirts that were almost identical. What to do? Change one up! One of the sweatshirts was slightly longer, a little too long actually, so this is the one I decided to go to work on. I started by cutting the cuffs off the wrists and the bottom, and the cut the neckline off. I like the current trend of the shirts that hang slightly lower in the back, so I decided to trim mine to this style. (The great thing about sweatshirts is that the material is very forgiving to being cut. Rather than unraveling, it will just curl a bit.)
Now for the fun part! This is so easy, but fun!
I took an ink stamp I had on hand. My stamp is of paw prints since I’m a huge cat lover. I got out my box of Sharpies (I LOVE, LOVE Sharpies and have them in every imaginable color) and got to work. After deciding on my Sharpie colors, I simply ran the Sharpie over the surface of my ink stamp and applied the stamp to the sweatshirt. I just kept doing this until I was satisfied with the one color, and then moved on to the next. It’s best to wipe off any excess ink from the stamp before applying a new color.
When your done, let the sweatshirt sit overnight or toss into the dryer to help set the ink better. Then you can wash and wear!
