rock'n roll hoodie


Today I jazzed up a little purple hoodie for Loopy to wear back to school, now that she is a rocker chick. I found this cute hoodie here and found a retro Blondie tee here.

The best part of this entire project was an excuse to use my new Crystal Fire BeJeweler and it was quick and easy... next thing I knew I'd used up two bags of Swarovski crystals. I love the grungy quality of this little project... it's very punk rock. I just cut the silkscreened tee apart and sewed it directly on the hoodie, with vertical seams along the zipper, and then cut along the zip line to open it up. I'll be keeping my eyes open for more tees and hoodies to embellish from now on.

Wow! It looks even better than I expected - and I see that you have replaced the cord of the hood with ribbon? We/you should source out big blingy beads for the ends of the ribbons! You always say "If less is more,how delighfully more MORE is!" and wouldn't beads be so "MORE"??? Loopy must be thrilled!

This is really something! I bet all the girls back at school are going to want to know where they can get one too!
