Introduction: Sweatshirt Jacket

this jacket can be made from old sweatshirts that need a new life

Step 1: Recycle and Keep Warm

Use two sweatshirts of the same size

Step 2: Cut the Sweatshirts Down the Front Center


Step 3: Place the Sweatshirts Right Sides Together

Step 4: Pin Edges and Sew Leaving Neck Open

turn the jacket to the right side and topstitch edges
you can sew the neck closed at this time

Step 5: Embellish

You can embellish anyway you choose.I chose to use chalk to create a quilt pattern
 It may be easier to ad patches etc before  you sew the sweatshirts together

Step 6: Finishing

I followed the chalk lines using white thread on the navy side and and in the bobbin I used navy.
The pattern is easy and the jacket is very warm when you turn down the heat in the house a degree or two to save energy

it'd be cool to do a peacoat version. ya know a double-breasted sweater. two rows of buttons.

I'm thinking buttons down the front instead of a zipper.

How 'bout a zipper too.

thought I would keep it really simple

NO! Velcro is sooo 80's use magnets instead!

You'll have to un-sew (new word?) the front opening edges and sew them inbetween the two layers. Simple and clean!

 wow! very cool, in a warm way, huh? a zipper would also be a nice feature.
