ever wanted to recycle an old sweater?
how about more than one
my friend challenged me to do so
with this instructable you can make a hoodie for yourself fast and easy
all sewing is made with an overlocking machine because the material is elastic and a normal stitch would rip apart very easy

Step 1: Get all the stuff

This is fantastic. I like lettucy edges in this context. If you're worried about shoulder seams or sleeve caps stretching, you can always serge in some clear elastic to the seams at the same time!
