This sweatshirt was by far my favorite thing that came out of this stash. However the cutest thing I ever made is the little squirt wearing it.
Its overwhelming when you have such a large stash to pick from, so start by sorting you stuff. I have different shelves for each category (after this shirt I had to take a couple days off of sewing to reorganize the storage room, it was getting crazy in there, so you can't tell I have it organized in this photo)
Sweatshirt fabrics, Knits, Flannels, cottons, fleece, Clothes to recycle (I only save the clothes that are in either really good condition, or prints and colors that I love), Fancy stuff, Small Scraps, and Misc. The little drawers you see, are filled with, Thread, Elastic, Lace, Ric Rac, and Bindings. A lot of these things I find at thrift stores or on clearance, I stock up when I see something I will need I will need in the future. I recently took several bags full to goodwill, DO NOT... I repeat... Especially if you are married, and want to keep your hubby happy, DO NOT KEEP EVERYTHING. I know its hard for me too.
Measure the neck opening with a measuring tape, then make sure your hood is the same size
Once you cut out the hood, lay it over the fabric you want for lining, and cut that out, I left a big green border on the inside but you don't have to.
Then sew that around the neck. **I sewed the side seams last so there wouldn't be a lot of bulk in the way while I did this next part.
If you have any questions or I missed something please ask!!!
