DIY Embroidered Slogan Sweatshirt | Video

diy embroidered slogan thrifted sweatshirt

I have a secondhand gray sweatshirt that I love so much that when I found it again at Goodwill, I bought it. Then I found a red one by the same brand. Naturally, I bought it because when you find the perfect cozy clothes, why say no? Unlike the first two, the red sweatshirt stayed tucked in a drawer unworn. It was missing something and I think adding some playful embroidery was just what it needed.

The video below shows the entire process, which could easily be completed one afternoon. I was wholly unprepared when I filmed this, so if you don’t have an embroidery hoop and carbon paper or iron on transfers, that’s okay! Even if you’ve never done anything like this, you can still DIY a cute and sassy sweatshirt.


You will need:

  • sweatshirt
  • pattern (see mine below)
  • scissors
  • pen (water soluble preferable)
  • needle
  • embroidery floss

To recreate my look, download this file, print and sew away!
