Drawing inspiration from Nepalese patchwork hoodies, Bizz from The Green Thimble & Tanya from The Makehouse Co-op will help you to upcycle old sweatshirts and sweatpants or sweater jersey scraps into your very own distinctive hoodie.

Discover the beauty of joining smaller fabric pieces to form larger panels, with the added effect of creating fun patterns. Embrace the versatility of using a serger to create exposed seams for a playful finish or opt for concealed seams for a polished look.

Select a simple hoodie pattern to work from, as the extra detail of piecing will detract from any stylized panels. (See link below for pattern recommendations).
