I found this T-shirt on a good will .99 cent sale. I thought it was cute, but it was a bit short for me. So I decided to make it into a hoodie!!! I added a bow to one of the shoulders, and a bow on the hood for detail. I also made little holes on the sleeve so I could stick my thumb through ( I'm not sure what you call those lol)  Grin
Let me know what you think! Smiley

Thumb holes? Maybe I'm not sure of the proper name either

Other than that very Christmas-y sweater! I like it Smiley

What an awesome find and an even better recon!! LOVE IT! And I know what you are talking about when you say thumb holes (cuz I LOVE that too!) but I can't think of what they are called either

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Cute!  I love those shirts with the thumb holes!  Especially in winter cause it keeps the cold wind off my wrists!!

this is really cute. I love the little bow. And they are def. called Thumb Holes or at least that's what my cousin's husband calls them. He has them on tons of his snow boarding shirts to keep the sleeves from riding up
