A while ago Mary from Craft Buds shared an awesome tutorial for turning a little boy hoodie into a an uber cute and very sophisticated cowl neck sweatshirt.
Well baby J doesn't have a hoodie to try, but I did. A well worn hoodie I've had close to 8 years; bought at american apparel which I love but hardly wear because the neck hole kept getting caught on my glasses. My head and glasses are too big, ha! So instead of donating it I used Mary's tutorial to accommodate the head and glasses!

Mary wrote a great tutorial, it was straight forward and easy to follow. The one part I tripped up on was attaching the flaps to the body at the end. A nice straight across line and an opening the length of the flap is super important. I fudged that part a bit but no worries because I made it work and I love it even more now! I would defiantly reccomend this tute, I even have another hoodie to up-cycle!
