KCWC - Day 5 - Upcycled Sweatshirt

So I needed a change of pace after finishing the matchy set in all cotton fabrics, and this quick project was just the thing.  lt began yesterday morning with this sweatshirt that I've had for years, but was not quite ready to let go of. I think it's the green - I love green. And the hood - I love hoods. 

So I took the Sewing for Boys book that was open on the floor underneath the sewing table and traced the pattern for the Raw Edged Raglan (I finally realized this is the same pattern as FIggy's Tee for 2 that I love). The sweatshirt is a small, so a size 2/3 was all I could get away with. You can see from the photo bellow that I kept the front pocket and bottom waistband when cutting. 

Mr. B and I both love the finished product. Here he is fresh from a 3 hour nap in the sweatshirt... cozy and cute.
