    I bought a pattern at my LQS but the directions sound somewhat complicated and I have put it off (like so many things I should do) -- but your mentioning this has inspired me to at least look at the pattern and the ones on this site --I really like the pix of the ones I have seen -- maybe after Christmas....

    I've made only one, and really enjoy it. The next time I make one I'll use the outside of the sweatshirt as the inside of the jacket, so it'll be easier to slide on over shirt sleeves, etc...and the lining won't continually 'pilll' as the one I have now, is doing.

    Oh now that's a great idea! That would never have occured to me, thanks!

    I made a red/white/black one last winter. The directions stated to get a sweatshirt one size larger than normal because of the shrinkage due to quilting. However, mine came out HUGE....so I had to cut it down more than expected.

    I love mine and hope to do another one some day soon!

    And yes, I used the outside of the sweatshirt as the inside of the jacket...rather than the fleecey part. I also took off all of the ribbing and bound the whole thing in the end. I wish I would have made at least one pocket for my cell!

    I made one for my DIL about four years ago. I put binding all around the bottom, sleeves and front,I used a cat fabric for all the applique and covered the buttons with kitten heads, and made loops for the buttons. she really liked it and received a lot of compliments at work

    I have an applique, iron on kind I think, sunflowers with ribbons, that is to go around the neck and down the front of a sweatshirt turned jacket. It is listed for sale in the classifieds if anyone is interested in looking at it. Smilessssssss.... http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-79327-1.htm
