Happy Monday!  Today marks the second Refashion Monday with yours truly and Mo from who is  that girl Mo?. Today we are going to refashion a sweatshirt two ways.  The sweatshirt is back better than ever. Your days of lounging around in that oversized plain sweatshirt are over. Now you can be cozy while still looking stylish.  But before you run out and buy you one let me show you how to DIY one of your own. I blinged mine out with gems while Mo studded and added zippers to hers. Check out how Mo put hers together here whoisthatgirlmo.blogspot.com  and check out my tutorial below:

Thread your needle then start sewing your gems in place. I glued mine into place, with fabric glue, then went back and sewed them down.

Ta dah!  It took me about 45min to get all the gems sewn but the end results are worth it.  We had 90 degree weather when I took this picture, since its still very hot in Texas, but I can’t wait to sport it soon as the weather turns chilly.
