Hey, I was thinking of making a hoodie out of an old shirt! I'll post when I am done, I'm not exactly which shirt I am going to use yet, seeing as how I hae a ton of them. I'll post when I figure it out. That should be in a few days. Hmmm...maybe a gunther hoodie. LoL.

I am jumping in too!
I am going to make a hoodie out of a fleece vest that I got free online years ago.
I got a couple shirts that I need to pick from to make the hood and sleeves.
I am planning on following the tutorial listed here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=39134.0
Half of my work is already done for me since I am starting off with a vest (zipper is already sewed in YAY)


I have an etsy store now! - http://flybabytina.etsy.com

has this post died out?? i've actually wanted to make a hoodie myself(for the same reason this post started, the incoming chilly air!!) but  i couldn't really find a pattern for it and the one i found was about friggin 20 dollars!!! and sweater fabrics are pretty darn expensive too..  Sad  Does anyone have any tips on getting started (such as pattern, tute, fabric...) for cheap$$$!!! I hope this sewalong start again and i want to see more of your completed sweaters!

This is a great idea, I'd really love a zip up hoodie. But I've never done zippers, hm.. maybe buttons instead?

From the book Godless:

Just Al: I know that God is real. I feel his presence in my heart
Me: What does it feel like?
Just Al: It's hard to describe Jason. It feels good.
Me: Oh. I thought maybe it was like heartburn or something.

Zips are not as hard as you think, i find them waaaaaay easier than buttonholes.  That may be because my machine hates doing buttonholes and trys to eat the fabric though...
I think theres some zip tutorials around here,
this one seems to be pretty good
or if you look around, you could find some more.

I keep meaning to make a hoodie.  The weathers getting warmer here though.  But I bought 2 metres of grey fleece for $4 the other day, so might get round to it soon...

If you want a cheap hoodie pattern, these ones are $3Australian, you just have to get them printed out somewhere, or email the girl to ask her to tile them for you or something

I would totally be up for it. I just finished two from a Burda magazine pattern that I was not totally pleased with. They were pull-over ones with a front insert. That insert drove me crazy and never sat quite right. So I am in dire need of a different pattern.
