I save hundreds by making my own ‘Nike’ logos then ironing them on Primark T-shirts – no one can tell the difference | The Sun

A SAVVY mum shared how she manages to save money by DIYing her son sports gear.

She reckons she's saved hundreds with her trick, and doesn't see why other people fork out for the real thing.

Kat Burman, 37, says she doesn't see the point in spending money on name brand clothes when her son "only cares about playing football and running around with his friends".

The beautician from Northampton got a £300 Cricut machine – which makes iron on designs – and decided to put it to use on her son's wardrobe.

She makes Nike ticks and logos, then irons them on to £2.50 Primark t-shirts, as well as his plain PE bag.

Savvy Kat also used the hack to turn alter a genuine Nike coat, covering over a pink logo – the only one in stock – with a white motif.
