The author showcases five projects that involve adding colorful cottons, some artful quilting, and clever closures to create stylish jackets suitable for almost any occasion. So put away the pounds-adding batting and use a sweatshirt as the basis for your art. In addition to the specific instructions for each project, there is a lot of basic info on converting, fitting and styling the sweatshirt, plus info on creating bias and innovative closures. 32 pages.
