I love it when my alma mater is actually good at something! The University of South Carolina Gamecocks baseball team is an awesome example of this!
For whatever the reason, I’m just not a fan of rooting for the underdog. If I’m going to attach my feelings and ego to a sports team, they’d better be winners dammit! :) These back-to-back College World Series winners fill this void nicely.
The only problem is, I have no Gamecocks gear to wear when I’m out and about cheering on my team! :( It never turns up in thrift stores.
Luckily, this close-enough-to-garnet hoodie did turn up at the Dollar-A-Pound Goodwill! :)
Alright…so there is absolutely nothing Gamecock-y about this hoodie, and it’s too big for me. Not a prob! I have a plan!
First, I took the hoodie in a good bit…
Then, I reached for my iron-on letters, and was immediately disappointed. :(
I thought I’d have to run to the craft store, but then I remembered the license plate of a gentleman friend of mine…
I arranged my letters and ironed them on, using the leftover scraps as a press cloth.
Now I’m ready to support my team in style! :)
