- 2 similar sweatshirts - 1 for baby (found 2nd hand), 1 for mama (forever 21)
- 1/4 yard tartan plaid flannel fabric
- gold sequin trim
- sewing machine (optional)
- spray adhesive
- hot glue
- 2 bear templates (download baby here and mama here)
Begin by printing off and cutting out your 2 bear templates. Lay them on your fabric and pin in place. I chose to lay the bears at a diagonal to the tartan plaid pattern. Carefully cut around each bear.
Place bear in desired location on each sweatshirt. I tried the sweatshirt on to make sure I was happy with the placement.
Insert pins around the fabric surrounding the bear, to mark the spot where the bear will end up. Remove the bear and spray the back of the fabric with spray adhesive. Be sure to do this in a well ventalated area and with a scrap piece of cardboard behind the bear.
Quickly place bear back on the sweatshirt in the place marked by the pins. Press around all edges to secure in place.
For added security and to create a cute border around the bear, sew an outline around the edge of the bear shape. This is an optional step but will probably help keep the bear in place when washed.
Now for the tricky part! Lay out your sequin trim on top of the bear spelling 'baby' and 'mama'. Using a glue gun carefuly lift and glue down your letters. This part took a little time and patience. You really only have one shot of getting this right, so take your time! I found the more cursive writing of 'baby' to turn out better than my 'mama' bear. Trial and error I suppose!
Overall I think the outcome is pretty cute! Usually I don't like to match anyone in the room, but this I will take! I'm proud to coordinate with my sweet girl and SO excited we were able to utilize Sprout to make it happen!
