Over the last week I spent all my time: a)studying for exams b) making x-mas presents and c) making this sweatshirt.
The fabric I used was completely free so I wasn’t afraid of screwing it up, since I had so much left. It took about a week to finish and my seams are a bit messy (i need practice) but overall, it looks like something I bought as long as you don’t look too close!
The patches were given to me by a friend who got me a Microcosm book for my birthday and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them once I found the fabric.
