Instead of writing affirmations down on post-it notes, we love the idea of a positive message sweatshirt that you can wear out. This way, you’re also spreading some uplifting reminders for anyone to see! 

Designed by Krista, this project download includes three different designs in a chunky retro typeface: Cool to be Kind, Take It Easy, and Love is Cool. Use all three or just the one you like best.

Wear your heart on your sleeve

Although we created this to be a positive message sweatshirt, you can iron our designs onto another article of clothing, a tote bag, or even a gift bag for Valentine’s Day. This is a simple and fun DIY project that you can customize by using your favorite color of vinyl or iron-on transfer. Plus you can use the designs over and over again for various items. 

We’d love to see what you create with these iron-ons! Share photos of your projects with us on our crafters community page or by using the hashtag #MadeWithLia on Instagram.
