A Tropical Sweatshirt

Hello Readers. I am in a comfort binge. I want cozy warm clothes like sweats and pajamas. Can I wear pajamas all day? Well, I can feel like I'm wearing pajamas. I decided to make this gray sweatshirt a little more appropriate for me. It was my son's but he didn't want it. My husband didn't want it either.

I didn't think the body of this tropical sweatshirt was the best part of the sweatshirt. I really liked was the tropical print from the sleeves and the hood. So that is what I removed from the shirt.

I put the tropical sleeves on this white sweatshirt. I also added the tropical hood inside the white hood. I made the colorful look like a lining that would peek out. The tropical fabric added some fun color to the plain white.

When I was done I had the gray body of the original sweatshirt left over. I wasn't sure what to do with it at first.

I flipped it upside down and I made it more narrow and added arm holes in the front. I cut out the belly. Who would wear this?

This guy right here. My dog K.C. needed a sweatshirt. He cries when he gets cold. He wants to be warm and cozy just like I do. He slept through this photo shoot

Thanks for reading along, now go make something fun (And warm!) for yourself.

Tropical sweatshirt- that sounds so warm! I love the print. What a fantastic idea to use the sweatshirt body for your doggie ! My grand-dog would love that too!
