I love to make things and I see new things I want to make all the time. You'll find that my crafts are all over the place as I try new things. Enjoy!

I saw this post (it has a tutorial) awhile back and decided that I needed to try making a sweatshirt into a vest for myself.
The other day I was going through the clothes that my son had pulled out to get rid of and found this black sweatshirt. I don't think he had ever even worn it.
The tutorial says to use a sweatshirt that's a little smaller than you would wear, so this one was perfect.
I got out my scissors and went to work. I cut off the arms, the bottom band, and around the neck. Then I cut it up the middle. I used a plate as a guide for rounding the bottom and around the armholes. I cut it into a racer-back style in the back.
By the way, that's all you need for this refashion. Just scissors. There's no sewing involved.
When I was finished cutting, I wound up with this.
I actually wore it belted but I had already taken it off when I remembered I should take a picture. lol
It was quick and easy - two of my favorite things!! My girls are all out of town right now so they haven't seen it. I'm pretty sure that when they do they'll be going through their clothes in search of sweatshirts to cut into themselves.
