DIY Couple Hoodie INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1: 

Pick your numbers and words - they can be your anniversary month and date, the year you started dating, the year both of you were born, or whatever is meaningful to you. The words can be your names, or king and queen like I’m going to do here, or an inside joke you guys have. Milk and cookie, peanut butter and jelly, best friend, etc…

Step 1

Pick your numbers and words - they can be your anniversary month and date, the year you started dating, the year both of you were born, or whatever is meaningful to you. The words can be your names, or king and queen like I’m going to do here, or an inside joke you guys have. Milk and cookie, peanut butter and jelly, best friend, etc…Take a piece of A4 paper and use it as a guide to see how big you want the font to be. Fold the paper to make it the general size of the letters and numbers.


STEP 3:

For the Font, you can download the font I used which is called all star from www.dafont.com or you can see go to this link here, for other varsity font styles that’ll also look great. Any font will work, but you want to pick a font with a distinct silhouette.

STEP 4:

Position your letters and numbers on a word doc according to what you measured in step 2.

STEP 5:

Once you feel like you got a general size, print it out and just roughly cut it out and see how it looks on the sweater. Adjust the lettering size and keep printing different versions till your happy. I used for a Size M hoodie, "King" in size 300 and the numbers in size 900. For a size S hoodie, "Queen" in size 275, and the numbers in size 800. You might use a different size depending on how many letters in your word. 


STEP 6:

Background – Find a background you like for both. You can have the same for both or different backgrounds for each shirt. I used an army print for the guy and a floral print for the girl.

STEP 8: 

Now use the letters and numbers you printed off as a stencil to outline on top of the transfer paper and cut them out.


STEP 9:

Iron it on to your transfer papers instructions and voila!
