    This is really unique. Like it a lot!

  2. That is so cute! My fear is that the markers would leave lines (like if you’ve ever tried to fill in something with Sharpie and you can see all of your strokes.) It doesn’t appear like it was, but was that ever a problem? I

  3. This, is awesome! I’m not entirely sure if I’d want to color in the whole thing, I might take the lazy person approach and use some fabric paint or something… 🙂 Pinned for later!

    I would love it if you would link up at Martha Mondays, open now through Wednesday night!



  4. um this is awesome! I love unique items like this and actually paint on scarves a lot. I would love it if you would come share over at my weekly party!! http://gracelangdon.blogspot.com/2013/09/making-monday-7.html

  5. Super cute hoodie makeover! I like that you made the hood blue with the stars, and the stripes on the rest of the hoodie. I’m pinning this!

  6. Wow it looks great!

  7. Super rad. I love the washed-out effect the markers give.

  8. I absolutely love this!!! I will be trying this soon! You did a great Job!!

  9. Thank you! ~M.

  10. It really turned out great. Thanks! ~M.

  11. I think I know what you’re talking about! It does kinda streak if you run the marker along the grain of the fabric, but if you color it in at various angles, the pen lines blend in rather nicely. Hope that answers your question! ~M.

  12. I should have used fabric paint! Frankly, I have never used any kind of fabric medium before, so I wasn’t sure how well the markers would do vs paint. I got the markers initially for my craft library thinking they would give me better control. But with so much space to cover for this hoodie, paint would have been a better route. Live and learn! ~M.

  13. Thanks, Gracie! Will head over to your party in a minute. ~M.

  14. Thank you! I didn’t actually think up the design all on my own, so can’t take credit for that. Haha ~M.

  15. Thank you, m’dear! ~M.

  16. I agree! The markers gave this hoodie a vintage feel that I wasn’t expecting. Kinda cool! ~M.

  17. Haha! I actually thought of you while doing this. It seemed this would be just the kind of project that would appeal to you. Can’t wait to see your version! ~M.

  18. Awesome! Loved it!

  19. Thank you!

    Wow! What a difference! Your hoodie has so much more personality now! Thank you for linking this up to Frugal Crafty Home!

  21. It really does have more personality now! But not too hard to do since it started from absolutely nothing. Haha. Thanks for checking it out, Carrie! ~M.

  22. Congratulations! You’ve been featured on this week’s Martha Mondays! 🙂 Swing by to pick up a “Featured” button and do a little bragging! 🙂



  23. Holy Moly, you have incredible patience + tenacity!!! Totally paid off, what a great way to jazz up a blah hoodie!!!

  24. Thanks, Shelli! I just think that I probably would’ve spent that much time locating the original hoodie, purchasing it, and waiting for it to come in the mail or be forced to pick it up from the States. So, time-wise, it probably came to a wash. And what better way to multi-task while catching up on my DVR’d shows!

  25. Girl, you are one helluva artist!
