Join Crafter's Choice for a great deal on FASHION SWEATSHIRTS
If you think gray and oversized when you think sweatshirts, think again. You’re about to learn how you can easily transform this once weekend-only wardrobe staple into a truly fashion-forward garment.
Super basic techniques, super stylish results!
Using basic sewing, crochet, and knitting techniques—many of which are reviewed in the book’s first chapter—you’ll learn how to jazz up inexpensive, yet oh-so-comfy sweatshirts. You’ll add lacy appliqués, beaded accents, whimsical yarns, and more.
Here are a few ideas:
• Create an elegant jacket complete with a mohair collar and cuffs and a sprinkle of iron-on beads.
• For a chic vest, remove the sleeves of your sweatshirt, add a zipper up the front, and trim all around with faux fur—then use the sleeves to create a matching purse!
• Transfer a vintage-style photo, then “frame” using a lace appliqué.
• Sew floral flannel squares together to create the look of a watercolor quilt on the bottom of any sweatshirt.
You’ll even find creative projects for children’s sweatshirts, including a sweet design featuring appliquéd hearts, crocheted trim, and a scalloped hemline.
With simple directions for over 25 absolutely fabulous projects, you’ll learn to see every sweatshirt as a blank canvas, just waiting for you to add your own special “paint.” Softcover, 128 pages, 8¼” x 10 7/8”
