Upcycled Fabric Hoodie

Learn to sew your own hoodie using an upcycled or bulky fabric. You can bring a blanket or quilt. Want to make this hoodie but shop new, our Merchant & Mills Jacquards or out French Terry Knits would be great for this pattern. 

We will go over working with garment patterns, placement for upcycling fabrics, how to use a serger, tips and tricks for working with bulky or layered materials to make garments, and create a beautiful one of a kind hoodie. 

This hoodie is unisex and meant to be oversized. Perfect for cozy lounging. The finished chest size of the pattern ranges from 47.5"-57.5"  ***** all bodies welcome! / everyone welcome! ****  

Supplies Needed: 
  • Fabric for Hoodie ~equivalent to about 3 yards 
    • A quilt you want to wear
    • Blanket, throw, or coverlet
    • Thrifted bedspread or even curtain!
    • Not going for the upcycled looked these Merchant & Mills Jacquards  or a French Terry  would be good options
    • You generally want a textile with some weight/bulk and coziness
    • PRE-WASH anything the way you will wash your finished garment. 
  • Coordinating thread- we recommend an all purpose poly thread like these.
  • Pattern and pattern paper are included in the cost of the class.
