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!

Attach more until they are in random swirls on the shirt.
I also added a small one to the pocket on the opposite side.
Right now I am knee deep in Christmas orders and Christmas presents. So this month I will be doing lots of creating, just not too many tutorials because of my very limited time. But I will be posting all my creations still. I hope you all are having a wonderful Christmas season!

Get a big sweater and turn it upside down. Cut it in half. Sew the piece where you cut it.
Flip it over and put it on!! You can wear it off shoulder,

I love the sweater vest look.
We’re going to make this one! (Isn’t it cuter, if I do say so myself?)
I got this sweater at my thrift store for $1.50.
We need to cut the sleeves off. I cut them right inbetween the seam where they are attached. That way it won’t unravel.
