I wanted to share this, because some of you may have the same problems that I do... I never know what to buy my daughter for gifts. She never really seemed to appreciate hand made things and ever time I bought clothes for her, she didn't really like them. I have such a hard time figuring out what to get her (other than a Victoria's Secret gift card... can't go wrong there!) That's where I got the idea. She is in her freshman year in college and plays on the soccer team, she pretty much lives in sweats. Victoria's Secret came out with a really cute collegiate line... but pretty much only for big D1 schools. She goes to Rowan in NJ. So, I stole Victoria's Secret's idea and picked up a pair of nice Champion sweat pants at Target and appliqued ROWAN in big varsity letters down the leg. I used black letters and then a slightly larger colorful letter behind it. I zigzaged the black letter, and used wonder under under both the balck and colored letters, but left the edges of the colored letter (no zigzag). I'm not sure how they will hold up in the wash, but I think the ones at Victoria's Secret may have had raggy edges around the letter, so I figured if the colored letters frayed along the edges, it would be fine. Here's a picture... not a good one, just shows the letters, but it will give you an idea.
She called me today and told me that all the girls on the floor in her dorm want them now. So, I guess.... I FINALLY GOT IT RIGHT!!! Finally gave her a gift that she liked!! Woo hooo!!! (then she told me that I could make a lot of money selling them... she said the girls would probably pay $30 for them.... uh.... the pants alone cost me $20...so I'm not sure how she figures I'd be making any money selling these! haha!!)
