Reinvent Your Boring Sweatshirt

Here is an easy way to update your sweatshirt. Take your boring zip-up hoodie and make it new.

Get out your zip-up hoodie and take different colored strips of other sweatshirt fabric, from thrift store finds. Kids sweatshirts are perfect for getting the fabric for this project, just enough fabric and most thrift stores have kids clothing for about 99 cents each piece!

Measure the front diagonally to from the shoulder to the zipper, then from the zipper on the other side to the side seam. Cut out the fabric that you want to make the stripes with. Pin them down real well on the front and then start sewing by hand around. You can use a contrasting color thread to make it look even more interesting. That is it!! A new sweatshirt!!
