Like everyone else here, I love mezzi's tute on making t shirt hoodies.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, please go here - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=100217.0

Seriously, it's awesome.

Here's a few that I made:

First -

Made from a too-small dexter t shirt that I got for free (it was a small, I'm more of  medium or large). I added red side panels, long red sleeves and a red hood all cut out of plain red t shirts and scraps from other projects. I then made one for my BF as well which is almost identical to this one except it's bigger and has a kangaroo pocket. No pics of that one tho.

Second -

Made from a too-big thrifted t shirt with a pic of thailand's floating market. I thought it was cool (it was also brand new and 99 cents - can't pass that up) and I had a surplus of these spring green t shirts (I love it when Michael's has the 5 for $10 deal).

Third -

This one I made for my BF. It was a size L Bruce lee t shirt that I got somewhere on sale over a year ago. He prefers an XL or bigger so I added side panels, sleeves and a hood from plain black t shirts the same way I did with the dexter hoodie. It's pretty awesome.

IMPORTANT HELPFUL TIP: I cut the sleeves, side panels and hoods out of plain t shirts so that the open edge (the edge you would normally hafta hem) is lined up with the already hemmed part of the t shirt. Maybe I'm just lazy, maybe I'm a genious.

I've made many many more from thrifted tees, just have to get pics of them. Maybe next I'll do some with zippers or slap some zippers in these.

Thanks for looking!

If I was ever stranded on a deserted tropical island, within a month I'd have built my own Craft Store and have trained monkeys to work the registers.

I heart personal swaps.
