My husband was getting rid of some of his old work sweatshirts. They were still in pretty good shape and I decided to "Up Cycle" one for me!
The rest of the post will be all photos -- Only a few words and no instructions. As I was making this, I just flopped the shirt on the floor and took a photo of each step. I was not planning to post, but a friend asked me to share.
If you sew or quilt it should be easy to understand if you view all 43 photos.
I started with a size 2XL 100% cotton sweatshirt that fit me. Make sure if you make one that the sweatshirt fits you and your really like it, before you start.
This Up Cycle --- Sweatshirt is available in a PDF Downloadable Pattern at Craftsy.com for Only $1.00.

I zig zagged to join the strips.
Then I topstitched it flat.
