Which fabric?

Postby Hannahboo » Sun Jul 10, 2011 9:22 am

I want to make some hoodies for Darcy for winter but not quite sure what the fabric is that I am looking for :giggle: What is the fabric called that sweatshirts are made of? Where can I get some? Or would I be better using BV and dying it?

Thanks in advance :wink:

If you have an old hoodie of your own or a guys one, you could upcycle one from that :wink:

Good idea!! I may even have a wonder round the charity shops this week to see if there is anything suitable :wine: although have to admit I am usually far too lazy to go into charity shops as there is so much stuff to look at :oops: :giggle:
