Hi, I'm Kristie Prince Hale. And today, we're going to talk about how to makeover sweatshirts. I have my beautiful assistant with me, Sloan. Can you tell everyone, hello. Hi. And we've got a great old sweatshirt here. And what we've done is, you can take old material and actually add it in, sew it and kind of, kind of add some different accents to it. With the hood here, we've just replaced it. So, it adds just a little extra fun and personality to it. And you can easily sew that in. But if you don't want to sew anything, you can do some other options. Like use an applique or iron on letters to kind of customize using the names or maybe saying that the child likes. So, you can kind of get creative with what you want to put on there. And then, we've taken some other materials we have with different appliques here. And you can reinforce them with fabric glue, if you'd like. And what we're going to do is, can you hold this for me? We're going to take and add one more up here and show you how easy it is. So, perfect, there we go, we just put that on. And now we've got some nice beads and her name on there. So, she looks fantastic. Can you show everybody how great you look there? So, there you go. Take a look at your craft store and see what materials you can find. And I know your old sweatshirts will look great. Thanks for joining me, I'm Kristie Prince Hale.
