No matter who you are or what sorority you’re in you always want to wear your letters proudly across your chest and hold your head up high with a giant smile. These are your letters and no one will take them away from you!
Although the bid day shirts were awesome and all the other new shirts your chapter is blessing you with there’s a little concern we all have. Most of the time it comes financially. Letters can be pretty expensive especially when you see that one shirt you’ve been eyeing and you really really want it but unfortunately it costs way too much and blows your monthly budget out of whack. The best solution is simply creating your own!
Think about it, just buying a shirt from Michael’s, Walmart, Target, etc. for under $5 and usually a half yard of fabric that you can find anywhere that comes up between $3-$5 dollars, adding puffy paint that can range from $2-$4. If I add all of the expenses up thats a $14 shirt! Not too bad is it? The best part is that it’s killer simple too, the major thing you need like most crafts is simply patience.
You’ll want to add to your shopping list:
Once you have all your materials from the store you can start by making stencils! Stencils can be anything, they can be plastic or made from oak tag paper, or index cards, etc. Sketch out your organizations letters and cut them out.
Then the order follows for ironing letters:
And you’re done! Super Easy!
Sewing is pretty simple also!
And you’re done! Super easy!
All these shirts really take is patience and soon you can have a shirt all your own style!
