I have wanted for a long time to try to make myself a nice colored hoodie , so the decision to participate to the Sew Warm contest helped me to organize my time and to finally accomplish my plan. The idea of most of the things I create is to recycle, so in this case also I will use only things that would normally get to the garbage.
This is my first instructable , I hope you will like it, I surely liked creating it,so enjoy! :)
The thing I liked most about creating this hoodie is that it was so easy, because I don't have sewing experience , I don't know how to create patterns, and for creating a hoodie like this you don't need this kind of knowledge

Materials required :
some nice colored leftovers fabric (you can go ask at any tailor workshop, they throw it anyway)
an old hoodie
a sewing machine   
an iron and ironing table
scissors

Step 2: Preparation

You need to disassemble the old hoodie into pieces.Keep the zipper and the edges aside , because they don't get changed and you will only sew them back at the final.
This will be your pattern,and every piece of the old hoodie will be sewed separately.
Prepare your fabric leftovers by choosing the ones that you will use, make sure you have enough.

Step 3:

Iron the fabric , and cut them into long pieces,(mine were already like this , that's the beauty of leftovers)
Make a small fold on the edge of the fabrics with the iron.

Nice cute Job!!!
I love this! I've had ideas for hoodie mods but never really knew how to go about them - this has given me some great ideas. Thank you for sharing - this is going in my favs :)
Wow, that looks nice!
But I have no experience with a sewing machine... (nor do I own one). I think I'll make this a project with someone who has. Though I'm not going to add it to my existing hoody; I'll make a new one instead.

I want to say that I don't have sewing experience ether, actually a friend of mine showed me first how to use the machine, and this machine being a new one it's very easy to use, but maybe it's ok if someone with experience can help you.
If you don't want to add to your existing hoodie you will need a pattern, but maybe your friend can help you with that also. Good luck, and I hope you have as much fun as I had doing it ! :)
i like it! :)
Such a good idea. Looks very cute!
