It’s football time! The Saints first game was yesterday and while I love repping my team, I get bored with wearing the same ole t-shirts that everyone else has. So when my sister said she bought us shirts from TJ Maxx to make our own Saint’s gear I was super excited!
Making a top like this of your own is pretty simple! Use any shirt in a style you like in your favorite teams color. A top with athletic detailing, like this Good Game Mesh Tank is perfect! Then, find a good sporty looking font like Player, Return Pass, High School USA or Freshman to create the design you want. I picked a big number 9 for Drew Brees, the Saints quarterback! Print your design on adhesive paper, trim with an Exacto knife, stick it to your shirt and paint with fabric paint in a contrasting color.
Once the paint has dried, remove the adhesive template and you have yourself a fashionable jersey! That is my dad below getting in on the pealing action! Head over to Sequin Crush for more detailed instructions and how Jasmine styled her shirt.
It is still very hot here in NOLA so I wore the tank tied up to the side with jean shorts, but I can’t wait to wear it with leggings once the weather starts to cool down (if it ever happens).
