Option 1: Spend over $140 on this cute gray sweatshirt.
Option 2: Buy the less-expensive version at Nordstrom for $50.
Option 3: Make your own sweatshirt for less than $5.
Something told me you would choose option 3 🙂
When I bought this sweatshirt for less than $1.50 at the Tanger Outlets, I knew that I would personalize it before I wore it. It took about a week for me to decide exactly what I wanted to do, but the project itself only took a short part of my morning.
After washing and drying the sweatshirt, I cut a piece of lace (leftover from making this purse) large enough to cover the entire front of my sweatshirt.
Then, I pinned the lace to my sweatshirt. I cut off excess fabric and folded the edge of the lace under itself so that the sweatshirt would look more finished.
Using a straight stitch, I attached the lace to the sweatshirt.
Before long, my frugal sweatshirt was ready to be worn.
