DIY Sequin Monogram Sweater

By The Girls With Glasses |


Letterman style is here, there, and everywhere this season! From sweatshirts, to sweaters and cardigans, the letterman trend isn’t just reserved for the football team and cheerleaders anymore. Recently, while strolling through Forever 21, I saw loads of letter marked outerwear but couldn’t find one with my letter on it. That is when I thought, I can make that! I decided to put a festive holiday twist on it and incorporate the sequin trend for a sparkly monogram sweater. Maybe while the guys are watching the big game, you and the gals can get your DIY game on with this fun personalized sparkly sweater!

DIY Sequin Monogram Sweater

What You Need:

Sweater- bought mine at Target $11.99


Felt- found at Joann


Iron on Adhesive Tape - purchase at Walmart 


Template Letter- Print a letter in font of choice, I used BEBAS. I used photoshop and stretched it to fit the entire size of the paper (8.5 X 11), but you could use Word and make it as large as the document size. Print and cut it out


Stretch Sequin Trim – Found mine at Joann's and had it cut by the yard. I got a yard and half. If the letter you are creating has a lot of curves go with the thinner trim, as it's easier to coax around the curves, and double it up for width. If you have no curbs go for the wider trim!


Sewing Machine – Though you will use the adhesive tape to hold the trim in place, you will want to sew this one for longevity. 


Pins – For keeping your template in place


Iron – To seal adhesive
