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
