To celebrate the upcoming release of Monsters University, we thought we'd share this easy DIY inspired by the movie. And since Halloween is just around the corner, you could easily add some funky make-up and hair color to this sweatshirt and become a "monster" yourself. Here's what you do!

Gather supplies. You will need:
- A Plain Blue Sweatshirt (a t-shirt or sweater would work as well)
- Felt, Dark Blue and White
- MU Stencil (which you can download here)
- A Sheet of Paper
- Scissors
-Sewing Pins
- Fabric Glue

Cut out your stencil and pin it onto the blue felt. Then cut around the stencil into the felt. Don't forget to cut a blue circle for the center of the eye (this isn't pictured here.)

Pin your blue letters onto the white felt.

Cut around the blue felt leaving a small border of white around the edges.

Glue the felt pieces together, blue on top of white, and then glue them down to the center of your sweatshirt. Make sure to put a piece of paper between the layers of the sweatshirt so the glue doesn't seep through to the back layer.

And there you have it, your very own Monsters University sweatshirt. This would also be super cute in child size! Monsters University will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack on October 29th. You can pre-order the movie here.
