Another Sweatshirt Jacket

Altered Sweatshirt.
For those of you who follow me, you know how I love to take sweatshirts and make jackets.  I have never been able to wear a pull over sweater or sweatshirt because I feel confined.  Long long LONG ago my parents gave me a pretty sweatshirt and sweatpants and the only way I could wear the sweatshirt was to make a jacket out of it.  It was glorious.  I appliqued southwestern fabric designs, I beaded, I added dangles and sequins and wherever I wore this jacket, I got compliments.  So from then on I was on a roll to alter sweatshirts.  Here is my most recent.  A pretty turquoise in SM, with flowery fabrics on the prairie points and pocket.  And a tote to-boot with a felt yellow flower.   Hope you think it is as pretty as I do.

This is so pretty, Carole. Your projects always show so much love. I think you truly love each stitch. This is so bright and cheerful. Would make a great gift.

Your rockin girl, love love your jackets, they are perfect for a day not chilly enough for a coat and elegant enough to wear any where, hugs

Carole, when did you sneak out this cute jacket? I totally missed this post.

This is such a great design... You are such a talented seamstress. Oh to have half of your talent... Sigh.

I thought of you when I purchased a Christmas throw size quilt. It has embroidery and fabric. I'll have to email you a photo. Now if it would just cool down here so that it might feel like Christmas... I am ready to ask the neighborhood home owner's assoc to reopen the pool!!!

Hugs, Susan

That is supposed to say the quilt has pretty fabric. Of course it has fabric! LOL.
