Make a jacket out of an old sweatshirt by cutting the front down the center from top to bottom. Trim the cut edge with ribbon or lace (you can hand sew it). This will look really special and it will get used more than you know - I know I do. These are fun and easy to make for children or adults, and are a great inexpensive homemade Christmas gift. You may even be able to get the sweatshirts at a thrift store, just wash before cutting.
