Refashioned Zip-Up Hoodie

Our daughter saw a hooded jacket that she loved on Etsy....but with a price of over FIFTY DOLLARS....she just knew that her Momma could do it for her!!!  So....she purchased a black zip-up hoodie and a pair of black sweat pants....and I think she paid under $10 for both, since most stores have those items discounted right now.  I used the front of one of the legs....cut it in strips about 1 1/2 times the length that I needed.....ruffled them....and sewed them to the jacket.

 I think I'm gonna have to make one of these for myself!!!

Blessings to you,
