So yes, we cleared the yard a bit and I got down to preparing the T shirt yarn for the next rag rug and the hubster decided to donate a couple t shirts.
So we got a few like this one, and I cut one to make a sweat jacket for the brat.
This is the one I cut for her SJ; the colour went better with the other out grown SJ's I had planned to up-cycle.
She wanted the drawings on the out grown sweats to be on the new one so I cut them off and serged the edges
I then placed and stitched them on the cut T shirt the hubster had donated.
I used the old sleeves from the out grown sweats, thank goodness they were a little longer than they should have been on their original body so they fitted perfectly on the new one. The stitching are all exposed because I wanted them to match the rough edges of the attached pieces on the body. Lucky thing I had a zipper that was the perfect length too!
I used the hood from the out grown grey sweats, but because it was small (short), I added some fabric from the sleeve of the donated T shirt.
She likes her new sweat shirt; she is waiting for tomorrow so she can wear it to school, but she wanted to strike a pose and show off first.
Yes, the sleeves still get folded....what can I say? Some sleeves are simple meant to be long lol. I am glad she likes it, I do.
