Savvy mum saves cash by ironing Nike logos onto Primark clothing

Kat Burman does not see the point in spending a fortune on sports gear when her son “only cares about playing football and running around with his friends”. The 37-year-old bought a £300 Cricut machine, which makes iron-on designs, and decided to use it on her son’s clothing.

The beautician makes Nike ticks and logos and irons them onto £2.50 Primark t-shirts, as well as his plain PE bag.

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

She got the idea after using the kit to decorate facemasks, so she started doing it on clothing this summer holiday.

Kat, from Northampton, said: “There is no point splashing out on expensive branded goods when all my son cares about is playing football and running around his friends – his clothes don’t last long.

“Honestly, nobody can tell the difference and he loves them. The coat is actually Nike but they only had one with a pink tick left in stock, so I printed over the pink with white.”

Her teenage son also has ADHD, making him more particular when it comes to fabrics and “tags” on clothes, she said.

She taught herself to use the gear using YouTube.

It comes as another mum shared a “life-changing” hack she uses when buying her children’s school shoes – which means she does not have to drag them to the shops.

Terry Wheatley, whose five children are all under ten years old and detest shoe shopping, says that buying her children back-to-school footwear used to be a difficult task.

The 33-year-old would have to take her children shoe shopping separately over a five-day period, costing her a fortune in petrol.

However, she found her own way around this by making stencils of each of her children’s feet.
