DIY Stella McCartney Inspired Sweatshirt

Hello all

It’s sharing time.  I have seen this sweatshirt online and in magazine and I just love, love, love it.  Since the sweatshirt is over $700……I thought it would be a great idea to do a more affordable DIY Version of it.

This was a very easy project. So let’s get started…..

Supplies:

Sweatshirt
Felt or 1/4 yard of red, black, yellow, and white ponte roma knit fabric
Gold, Silver or White Glitter
White Beads
Rhinestones
Mod Podge
E 600 glue
Aleene’s fabric glue
Fray Check
Clear Gloss Acrylic Sealer

Directions:

Start by printing out the heart and lip shape. Links below to one’s I used.

(Note I cut 2 yellow hearts because I cover 1 with gold glitter.)

Heart template

Lip template

Use your heart and lip cut out as a pattern for your felt or fabric. Cut out all 6 shapes.

(Note I folded the paper shape in half and cut out the shape on the fold because it’s just simpler. )

(Note I cut 2 yellow hearts because 1 of them will be decorated with gold glitter.)

Now that all your shapes are
cut out use fray check on the edges if you use fabric. (If you use felt this step is not required.)

Now let’s start “glittering”
Take a heart a cover it in Mod Podge

Now cover with glitter

Shake off excess glitter
Spray with glossy finishing spray let this dry.

Repeat the same process with the white lips.

Now lay out your sweatshirt on a flat surface, placing magazines in between the sweatshirt. This will help prevent glue from seaping through to the other side.

Now that everything is dry glue all the fabric pieces using fabric glue to the sweatshirt

Now use E 600 to apply the jewels and beads.

Let everything dry overnight and enjoy wearing your shirt.
I really enjoyed this DIY. I had all the supplies on hand except for the sweatshirt. In total I spent $8.00 on this DIY Project. If I had to purchase all the supplies this DIY would have cost me around $30 or $40. Which is great in comparisons to spending over $700. I hope you give it a try, please let me know if you do. Happy crafting and creating.

Enjoy & Until Next Time,
Sewloveable
