DIY - personal sweatshirt

When you need to make a gift, but don't have the time to make it from scratch, a personalized gift is a good solution. In this case it's a simple crop-top sweatshirt from HM, that I personalized as a gift to my sister. 

Here's what you need:
 - a basic sweatshirt 
 - some thick fabric, like felt 
 - a scissor and a white marker 
 - and off course a sewing machine

When you have all your materials, you need figure out what you want to write. I wrote my sisters nickname, and her favorite number.

Then you have to measure how big you want the letters and numbers to be, and draw them on the felt. 
Remember to draw "mirrored", because you will be turning the letters and numbers around.

Then you just pin the felt letters/numbers to the sweatshirt...

... and zig-zag all the way around them.

TIP: it's best to start with the inner-circel in the zero's and the o's, because the fabric will wrinkle in a weird way if you don't. And then you are done!
