Description

So I was trying to weed out some old things and was faced with the inevitable question: What to do with my event T-Shirts and Sweatshirts. I decided to make one of those quilts but then asked myself if I destroy all of my hoodies what happens if I want one to keep me warm? So, I turned three of my old hoodies into one fabulous Letterman jacket and a matching purse. I did use one of the old T-shirts as a backing for the patchwork weave and pockets. Other than that, this project was 100% recycled hoodies.

3 Hooded Sweatshirts: hoodies [Best if the base sweatshirt and sweatshirt for sleeves are similar thicknesses and sizes]
