Okay...so, I got this bag of clothes from a friend of mine after he cleaned out his closet. I've been slowly working my way through it making various things. I had been humming and hawwing about what exactly to do with this ass ugly sweatshirt, because we all had a good laugh about the possiblity of making something wearable out of it. It had a big ugly wolf head embroidered smack in the middle. But, damnit, I was determined! So...this is what I came up with. I'm not sure what to call it...but I think it's cute.

The pitiful before:


And the refreshing after:


A little side action:


Detail of the machine embroidered cherry blossoms:
(don't mind my chalk outlines)


Detail of the slightly poofy sleeves:



So, that's that!
Thanks for looking.  Smiley
