For Birdie’s Second Rodeo, I wanted her to have a jacket that said “Not My First Rodeo” but I couldn’t find one! I found a few patches but didn’t find anything that would fit Birdie’s jacket size or that would be custom made in time for her party. So I decided to DIY her jacket instead! I still had all of my painting supplies from when I painted my Monogram Straw Tote and made my own ‘stencil’ using Keynote.
First, I found the font that I wanted to use for her jacket and the rest of her party (I even made a homemade banner in keynote as well – it was super easy!). Once I had the size I wanted, I printed everything out on thick card stock so that it would be easier to trace. Then I cut out each letter by hand (this is the most time consuming part), laid the letters out, and pinned them in place. I used a sharpie pen to outline the letters and then carefully painted the inside with white acrylic paint. It was as easy as that! And it turned out SO cute. I kind of want one for myself now..
