Old sweatshirts are the start to so many great refashion projects! They’re easy to sew, easy to embellish, and they won’t get all wonky and distorted when you start taking them apart. Here I’ll show you how to transform a sweatshirt into a simple knit jacket with some pretty fun extras in the way of large scale applique designs and a practical side lace up element that’s great if you’re like me and need a little extra room in your hips. You’ll learn:
- How to add a separating zipper in knits
- How to add machine applique cut from scarves
- How to add a lace up side to a top
- How to create a custom zipper pull from scraps
