Vintage Toddler Sweatshirt

I might get a little attached to my clothes.  Not all of them, but I get weirdly attached to some things.  Like this sweatshirt.  I just love a thin, worn sweatshirt.  Plus I took this one to college with me, so it was a little sentimental to begin with.  I think my mom bought it at a thrift store and I don't really know how I ended up with it, but I did!


After the sleeves started getting a little tattered, I cut them off as well as the neck and wore it to work out in.  After several years like this, the waistband was even starting to tatter.  So I knew it was time to give this guy up.

Or not.

I decided to upcycle it for Olivia!  And thus one of my new ideas for my etsy spring line was discovered.  Vintage toddler sweatshirts.  I don't have boxes of awesome sweatshirts so I'll have to start frequenting the thrift stores more often.  But seriously, how cute is Olivia in this new top?



It's a little nerve wracking to let my kid walk around in this shirt, but it's already been spit up on, thrown up on and food splattered on it, so I think it's safe.

  4. When you get your sweatshirts going on Etsy, make sure that you have something extra cool in size 4T or 5T for my kid. :) I will buy one.

    1. Totally!! I plan to list the sweatshirts I find BEFORE I cut them out so that I can make the size needed, since I'll only have one of each design.

  8. That's awesome that you were able to upcycle the sweatshirt for your daughter. I wish I could sew that well. Pillows I can handle, everything else- not so much!!
