I’m very inspired! I love the way you did the embroidery on the sleeves. It makes all the different it the world. Did you put a zipper in the front of the sweat shirt?

WOW!!! This is fabulous!!! Your friend did a marvelous job! Love the embroidery that you did also. Thanks for sharing this. I love redesigning sweatshirts, lots of fun. Just saw a segment from Nancy's Notions on PBS where Mary was showing you how to make different sweatshirts. Again, thanks for showing this.

This is beautyiful - and what a good friend to find just tyhe right collar and cuffs for this., Now, with the 85 degree weather we are having here in Florida - might be too warm to wear.

This truely does not look like a sweatshirt!!More like boiled wool - the embroidery looks so rich and the collar and cuffs are the greatest finishing touch I've seen in along while. WOW!! Please share pictures of the back and some helpful hints on the collar and cuffs. This is amazing!

A lovely, festive jacket. I like the collar and cuffs, must have been a very special yarn to get this great result!

The yarn is called fun fur I got mine at ACMoore a craft store

bumblebee by bumblebee 20 Dec 2011

Yes I know this yarn but this is a very good result. She did a fab job-maybe 2 strands at a time to get is so full. One
of the best projects I've see with this
yarn.

castelyn by castelyn 21 Dec 2011

When I use this kind of wool, I use another thread of ordinary wool to match the colour and it gives it a lovely full result. Hugs Yvonne

I would love to see the back of the jacket. Do you have a tutorial or a link to one that you may have used for this? I really want to make on but do not know where to start. Thanks and Merry Christmas....

jenne by jenne 20 Dec 2011

First I started with a sweat shirt and took it completely apart, even the sleeves
then using my favorate jacket pattern I cut it out and resewed it stablizering the front with Iron on interfacing and along the hem line then match the fabric with 3" bias binding fold this in half as you would a quilt, I put a regular facing on the neck cut from scraps of the sweat shirt hand stitch the binding and hand sew the collar and cuffs to the jacket add shoulder pads and hooks and eyes.
