DIY Boy Girl Twins Best Friends Jackets

IMG_0193-1After making some NYFW inspired mommy and me best friends jackets for Everly and I, I knew it would be even better, and so much cuter, if I made a matching one for Stormy to wear with her. I found both of their moto jackets on eBay (H&M brand) and purchased them a little big so they could get as much wear out of them as possible (seriously, may they never grow out of them 😉 ), you can see the tutorial on how I made them in this post.

I had so much fun making these jackets and I just love the way they turned out! And they were so easy to do, I may have to make bigger ones for when they grow out of them 😉  I think the hardest part about all this was waiting for the weather to cooperate! I really wanted to use that umbrella I had stored away but it was sunny for such a long time and so hot out that these outfits would be way too warm! But really, who can complain about warm sunny weather?…I think it was definitely worth the wait! 🙂

DIY Mommy and Me Matching Best Friends Jackets

DIY Mommy and Me Best Friends Jackets Matching OutfitDIY Mommy and Me Best Friends Jackets Matching OutfitAfter seeing this photo of Shea Marie and Caroline Vreeland from NYFW floating around all over the internet and showing up in my Pinterest feed, I knew I just had to recreate some of these matching best friends jackets for Everly and I. Such a cute keepsake to have and something I will always cherish, and how awesome would it be if one day, many years from now, Everly took some of these photos with her own little girl? One can dream right? 🙂

DIY Mommy and Me Matching Best Friends Jackets OutfitDIY Mommy and Me Matching Best Friends Jackets OutfitMaterials:

Two moto jackets in your sizes (I purchased mine from Forever 21 for around $35 & Ev’s is H&M but I found it used on eBay for $25)

Heart template (I just Googled it and chose an image I liked)

Scissors to cut template

Chalk pencil for tracing

Ruler (to make heart bigger if template is smaller than desired)

Sharpie paint pen

These were pretty straight forward to make, but the hardest part was definitely scaling the hearts to size. I printed my half on a full sheet of printer paper and Ev’s on half of a sheet. I decided I wanted them a little bigger than the template and I also wanted that elementary “I drew this on my best friends binder” sort of look (because I think it makes it look more authentic), so I used the ruler to eyeball around my template and mark it with a chalk pencil. Then I just traced over my line with a sharpie paint pen, let it dry (it dries almost instantly but I waited an hour just to be sure), and then wrote the letters in the middle. Let it dry and they are ready to wear!
