Any Hockey Fanatics...

A few years back I took hockey jerseys from each of the boys on my son's hockey team and made them into shorts! Every year they get new hockey jerseys and they seem to pile up...so I did a little fiddling around and came up with hockey shorts! They were a hit! Well a couple of days ago a mom asked if I would do a set for her little guy for Christmas! Sure......

I attached this little tag I made using a Quickutz soccer jersey die that I turned into a hockey jersey, using the team colours! I then carefully cut out this little guys number that is on his jersey. Then I printed his name on the back as well!

The right leg is the team logo and on the left leg it reveals his number and his last name! I sure hope he likes them!

Have a wonderful day!

  7. Hi Christine. Wow this is totally amazing. I know everyone is big on recycling but you are definitely taking it to the next level. What a great way to use old hockey jerseys and to work the name and logo on to them at the same time. Fantastic. I think I know a boy who is going to love this. Donna
