You guys, when I saw Blair of Atlantic-Pacific rock that fabulous Zoe Karssen Creme de la Creme sweatshirt, I LURVED it. But then I saw the price tag. $160.
That’s $160 American dollars. For a sweatshirt. Now, a fun and pretty fab sweatshirt, but I’m sorry, this guy isn’t gonna shell out $160 for a sweatshirt. I mean, if I’m gonna spend $160 on a sweatshirt, I would hope that it would give me a massage or something while I wear it. I dunno. I mean, I’m just saying.
But THEN, when I saw this fab DIY that Rachael of Shore Society did, I KNEW I needed to try it.
So yeah, I DIYed my own Zoe Karssen Creme de la Creme sweatshirt. For a total for $13.27. BOOM.
Here’s what you need:
Step one: Get a sweatshirt
Now, I am NOT ashamed to say I found my sweatshirt in the boys section at Wal-mart for… yeah, you can see it… $1! ONE DOLLHAIR.
I was only able to find the similar Zoe Karssen letters at Michael’s. They don’t sell them online. They are the felt iron-on letters. Now, the packs of letters usually run for $9.99 each, but they were on sale, and then with the Michael’s coupons via their app (link above) I was able to get THREE packs of letters for $12.27!
Annoying thing is since you need 5 E’s, you have to get three packs. UGH. Bummer.
Step three: Cut out your letters and place them face down on the sweatshirt
Now, I had to iron for a LONG TIME for them to stick. I kept having to make the iron hotter for them to stick. But I just might be iron-challenged.
Step five: Let cool… then REMOVE backing!
Once you’re done ironing, let it cool for a WHILE… like a few hours or something before you take the backing off. I went and had dinner and came back and it was ready.
Yeah, so I know that I’m no Blair, but hey, I love the way I turned out! Eh?

So what do you think? Would you spend the $160 on the real thing or try a little DIY action?
