My husband, Zach, and I have known each other since we were 6. We were best friends in highschool and he had this sweatshirt that was his favorite that I always loved.
Here it is today, 10 years later.
I used to wear this sweatshirt a lot when we were friends. It was just cozy and comforting to me. He wore it all the time and soon enough it got little holes in the hem of the sleeves. So I used to stick my thumbs in the holes. It made it extra comforting to me. Ever since high school this sweatshirt has been like a security blanket for me. It reminds me of my sweet husband and the friendship that our relationship is based on.
Anyhow, I wanted to make a pair for my sister that looked Free People-ish. So I found this wool sweater with these great button cuffs at the end. I cut them at a slightly flared angle.
Mark then cut a little hole for your thumb.

Here’s a simple project made of old sweaters.
Take two old sleeves and cut them off the sweater.
Mark where you want your thumbs to stick out and cut little holes there.
To decorate them, the possibilities are endless. I took a long ruffle then cut them into little pieces and made little rosettes. You can glue or stitch them on to the sleeve/glove.
Then I put different buttons on.
Now I’m happy and warm!
