Girl's Spring Letterman Sweater

girls letterman sweater diy

I can't even tell you how much fun I had making this girl's letterman sweater for spring! I have been loving how cardigans are back in style and so easy to find at every store, but they all look rather plain. I was inspired by collegiate letterman jackets to create this super easy monogram sweater. The Joy letters are what really "make" the sweater - giving it a rich, custom-embroidered look instantly. 

You'll need the following supplies to create this DIY sweater project:
  • Joy Varsity Letters
  • White fabric paint
  • Foam paintbrush
  • Painter's tape
  • Iron, ironing cloth
  • Measuring tape
  • Cardigan sweater
Here's how to make this sweater:

Lay the sweater flat and tape stripes on one arm.

Measure the distance from the top of the sleeve to the first tape line on the first sleeve. Place tape on the second sleeve at the same distance from the top of the sleeve. 

Using a foam brush, paint the masked stripes with white fabric paint. Allow to dry at least two hours.

Flip the sweater and repeat the masking and painting on the back of the sleeves. Allow to dry at least 2 hours.

Place the letter on the sweater with an ironing cloth on top. Iron with a hot, dry iron for 30-45 seconds until the letter is fixed in place. Remove the ironing cloth. Allow sweater to cool before wearing.
