    Can you rip out the seams, Sew around the edges to stabilize them and when it is laying our flat, use the sweat shirt as a pattern for the batting and backing? Then do the applique work and stitch it back together? I have done appliques by copying pictures out of children's books.

    I forgot to say: I took the quilting up to the edge of the neckline, sleeves and waist. A few times I omitted the ribbing and just finished all of the edges, too.

    You can check out both e-PatternsCentral.com or www.GrandmasAttic@compuserve.com. They have a mix of both quilt and clothing patterns...might also google sweatshirts.com Amma making patterns from clothes is a standard practice in seamworking...there should be no problem. I would advise using muslin as your pattern material...it would be more durable ,you won't have to risk cutting the original, and you will have a permanent sweatshirt pattern to work from.
