For our Sisters Share It All this time, it was Landen’s pick. She decided to go Project Runway style and make us do a refashion project in one hour. Totally terrifying for me (the queen of taking forever on even the quickest of projects) until I remembered this ASOS sweater knock-off refashion I’ve been dying to do.
With a super plain sweater I bought a few months ago from Forever 21, and a freezer paper stencil, I pumped this baby out with only moments left on my one-hour clock. To be fair, drawing and cutting out the letters took the majority of my time — the actual painting took one minute at the most.
- Plain sweater or shirt
- freezer paper/pencil/scissors
- fabric paint/foam brush
Step 2. Carefully cut out your letters using sharp scissors or an exacto knife. Using a hot iron, iron the freezer paper to your sweater.
Step 3. Place a piece of cardboard inside your shirt to prevent paint seeping through, and then using a foam brush, dab your paint on to the stencil.
and that’s it!
you are so creative! I wish I had your skills! xo
Awesome! This looks great.
I love the new sweater! I need to get me some freezer paper and fabric paint!
Wow, that looks fantastic! I have to say your free handwriting is awesome!
Holy heck that's cute (of course). I have wanted to try a freezer paper project for awhile but NONE of our stores sell the stuff–it's silly, really.
I fear this may turn out like Kate's hair tutorials. She does it and it looks so easy. I do it and it's a huge mess. You are incredibly creative!
OMG I love this! I cannot wait to try this out!

You are amazing! I LOVE this.
I love this!!! Such a great idea for a fraction of the price compared to the expensive shirts!
I love this idea, it's so cute!!

This is so stinking cute. I'm not sure I have the talent to do this myself, but perhaps I'll give it a try someday anyways! Love it!
Turned out adorable!!! Great job on the writing…I could never have done that!
Love this DIY! Amazing!
This turned out so well! I'd be scared for the paint to move around, but it looks like it didn't. What a great way to make something your own. Maybe I'll make a Guten Tag one 😉
I seriously can't believe you made this yourself and that you freehanded the text! I like my print handwriting, but I'm not great at script (at least pretty script like that). You're so talented!
Ooh I love this so much! The bonjour is fabulous, but this technique could be used for anything! The inspiration is flowing! Thank you so much for sharing
I love this. So simple, but so beautiful. and an awesome way to repurpose and try a new trend at the same time!
