Looking for ingenious ways to make a hockey jersey shape

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
A challenge, a quest, fair ladies and fine gentlemen!

I made a cutter for some hockey jerseys I'm doing for my friend, but I made it too big. The shape's great, but way too large (like, 5.5" when I need them to be 3"). I'm now out of metal strip, and don't have time to get more before next week.

Has anyone used another cutter to get this shape (you know how you can turn a heart upside down and it's a pair of boobs, that kind of thing). My spatial skills aren't that great, so I need some help!

Thanks!

The shape should be easy enough to cut with a knife. Make a template out of Plastic or cardboeard or print out a pic (or draw) in the size you need. The sides are all straight, so should be easy to cut with a knife

Use a rectangle and and either "cut off" the sleeves or include them by "folding" them. Take a look at these:

You could also do a round cookie this way. Take a circle and set it over a picture of your jersey. You'll have maybe a "V-neck" and logo it it. I hope this makes sense. All you really need are the jersey color for background, name and number.

Thanks for these replies. I didn't get notified for some reason.

I know she really wants the shirt shape, so I expect I'll handcut with a template (there are only 20 to do).

Thanks for your help.

If you cut out squares the size of the "jersey" then use a circle cutter and cut a half circle for the neck and use the square cutter again along the sides to cut out an upsidedown "L" shape to form the arms and sides, that should give you a cleaner cut, and resemble a jersey. I know this seems complicated, but it should go faster than cutting around a template.

I did NYC cookies that were a t-shirt with the I "heart" NY. I used a onesie cutter and just cut off the bottom. You can see a picture of them in my picture gallery. I don't like the hand cut cookies at least I don't like mine. They always look rough around the edges no matter what I use or how sharp the knife is.

I hope this helps.

Good luck.

Perfect! I did exactly this, plus used an oval to shape the shoulders a little. It worked really well. Thanks for the ideas, everyone. You're fab!

That didn't come out very well, did it? Try again with the smaller pic.
