A lot of the crafting I have been doing lately has been upcycling some of my old clothing! 2 items which found their way on my list where sweatshirts from my undergrad - Suffolk. The sweatshirts where XLs that I had picked up along the way but never really wore, being that I was SWIMMING in them! Because they where from my alma mater, I had no desire to just discard them, so instead I upcycled them. What this post really ends up being about is that I used a wonderful book that I purchased a few months ago to re-create my wardrobe! The book was Cut Up Couture
by Koko Yamase! I can't even begin to describe how awesome this book is! Just check it out:

This is one my favorite things that I upcycled with the aid of this awesome book. It was crafted from my XL
Suffolk Sweatshirt. I've received an unbelievable amount of compliments on it!
