One of my favorite things that I used to make for my girls when they were little was a jacket made from a sweatshirt. It was usually made from the scraps of a skirt that I had made.
Believe it or not it was actually hard to find a white sweatshirt. I did find one finally, at Walmart. First you need to find the center of the jacket.
