DIY Die Hard Sweater



heather gray sweatshirt
red fabric marker
painter’s tape
ironing pad


Heat up your iron and work on top of an ironing pad. Start with a light gray sweatshirt and a red fabric marker.

Look up a sample of the sweatshirt from the movie online. and work from this example

Put on the sweatshirt and tape off the area where you want the lettering to be. This ensures that none of the writing will end up too far left or right under your arms or too low to be legible when you’re sitting down. Also make sure your sweatshirt is ironed and smooth before you start the writing.

Next it’s time to follow your picture and replicate the sweatshirt from the movie. Work slowly to make sure you are copying the handwriting as closely as you can.

Once your lettering is done remove the tape and iron the lettering with a hot iron and no steam. This will set the fabric marker. You can also throw the sweatshirt into the dryer to set the marker.
