DIY sports jerseys/gear

first_imgAll Activity tubby34 Forums Home Sports Logos spyboy1 1 3,353 Location:Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada I have made a couple of custom projects. I have not gone so far as to do the sewing myself, but I did come up with the concepts and had these produced.This is a early 90’s Hartford Whalers alternate that never was. At the time they had a blue road and white home set. I found this blank green lace up collar jersey blank and bought the pucky the whale patches separately off of ebay, which at the time was a rare find. I then chose the color pattern for the name and numbers and had it customized. I later found out it was a Plymouth Whalers uncrested jersey. This next one was a blank Ottawa 67’s jersey I had made into an Ottawa Senators throwback barberpole style, complete with the white square on the back for the numbers. Again, I had to locate all the proper patches for the main crest and shoulders off of ebay and even added a memorial patch to the chest to bring it into modern times. I then did an old time version with a Willabee and Ward “1904 Champions” patch. I chose 7 for the “Ottawa Silver Seven”.

Just a quick little project for a rare day off.I hate to pick nits, but the stripes on the old Nets jerseys are supposed to be asymmetrical. The right edge of the wide blue stripe (with the white stars inside) should line up with the seam, not be centered on top of it.Oh, also, if you’re going to make a DIY basketball jersey out of a wifebeater, perhaps you should put Jason Kidd’s name and number on it.

Bummer. With that said, the older, more generic jerseys it seems to me would be less of a problem since there are no logos etc. on them and any team anywhere could have worn a similar jersey.

I must say, they are quite impressive, all of them.But who amongst us here has tried something similar? I’ve thought about doing something like that, with the 1986/7 Chargers navy blue jerseys.
