There are tons of great T shirt patterns and free tutorials out there, so what makes this one so special, huh?!?! Well, to start with, this is a unisex pattern. OK, I guess most t-shirts could be unisex, but this one gets better. You start with the basic T shirt with a ringer collar - a staple that any one needs to have in their tool kit. This is the kind of basic that Blank Slate is known for, because it truly is a blank slate that can be embellished or tweaked to your heart's content.
|woah - did you say embelish??????|
I made the hoodie using two t-shirts in my stash... I love the red and grey combo, it looks great on my boy and will go with anything. The only draw back to upcycling and hoodies is that the hood takes up A LOT of fabric... so, you will need two shirts at least. Also, make sure you cut your hood on the correct stretch or you will end up with something that is never going to fit over your child's head - ahhh the dangers of late night sewing ;op
