Color Blocked Sweatshirt

It can get a little boring during the summer. I didn’t have time to go to the store to get fabric. I looked in my fabric drawer and I saw a bag of scraps. There were a couple of large scraps. And I love to up-cycle so I thought it would be a good idea to make a quick little shirt.

IMG_4229Before I made this sweatshirt, I made a comfy cross sweater. I had large scraps left over from it and made a color blocked sweatshirt. In a way you could say this sweatshirt is up-cyled from scraps.  I had a lot of fun making this and I skipped a lot of hemming because of the color blocked. I originally hadn’t planned for the colors to be like they are, but because of the size of the scraps.  Along with pictures of the sweat shirt.

The front top portion is red and the bottom portion is black with a red pocket. The back top portion is black and the bottom is red. I cut the pieces extra big and then downsized from there. I love it so much because it’s loose and I can wear it in different types of weathers. It is thick but because of the neck hole and sleeves, it doesn’t over heat me. It’s made from a regular knit fabric. The colors look really good together.

I hope you enjoyed this post!

HAVE A FASHIONABLE DAY!
