Throwback Thursday-DIY J.Crew Sweater

I would like to do a little throwback Thursday on the blog today. Back to a DIY sweater I made last year.

It was a sweater that was on my Christmas wish list and I ended up making it myself!

It's from J. Crew and I just think it is adorable! It is quite pricey for my wallet, but a girl can only hope. Then came the idea, I can possibly make my own. So that's what I did. I made my own "J. Crew" sweater!

Here's how to make it!

You will need:
A sweatshirt
Mod Podge
Paint Brush of some sort
Thick paper

1. Trace and cut half of a heart onto a magazine cover. It works better if the paper is thicker than notebook paper. Sorry Emma Watson.

2. Fold the sweatshirt in half and line up the heart on sweatshirt.

3. Trace the half with a pencil.

4. Open the sweater and finish tracing the heart.

5. With the mod podge and glitter you can make however much you want, but just do half and half. If it seemed too thick to me, I just added some more mod podge. 

6. Start filling in the lines! 

7. I did one coat and then let it dry. Once it was mostly dry I added another coat. Let it dry over night and voila! You have yourself a J. Crew heart sweater look-a-like!

Of course I paired it with my favorite boots and knee socks!

And there you have it! 

A cute new sweater!

    1. Thanks! I'm hoping I get off work early enough :/ You're moving?! Like for good?? But that's exciting!

  2. Wow! It looks great. Congratulations on a successful DIY!


  3. SO CUTE!!!! Can you wash it like normal or do you need to hand-wash it? Also, do you think it would work on a thinner material like a tshirt?

    1. Thank you! I hand wash mine. If you want to do it on a thin shirt I would do a thinner layer of the glitter and glue. Make sure you put something in between the layer of your shirt so it does not go through!

  4. I love this; you did such a fabulous job!!! Hope you're having a lovely weekend :)

    1. Thanks so much! Hand washing actually isn't too bad haha

  7. That's awesome!! I'm sure if I tried I'd mess it up (even with detailed directions). Love it. xoLili

    1. You should try it! I went out of the lines a little, but it's easy to fix! :)
