Picture of Quilted Sweatshirt

I love up-cycling things! Finding new uses or a new way of repurposing something for someone else is amazing! I have made a few quilted sweatshirts for my kids and I thought you might enjoy doing the same for your little ones or for yourself! Enjoy:)

Step 1: What you will need

Picture of What you will need

You will need :

A sewing machine (however it is not necessary, you can hand sew this project)

Good pair of scissors

A new preferably used sweatshirt, try and get one two sizes too big, color of your choice.

Thread to match the sweatshirt

A jelly roll,no not the jelly filled kind:) You can find them at your local quilt shop. They are a roll of about 30-42 strips of precut 2 1/2" wide by 42" long strips of cotton fabric. I love these! Less cutting and the colors are already coordinated for you.


hand sewing needles if you are not using a machine.

Any buttons you might have laying around would be great also!
