I always hate it when I find a piece of clothing, put it on, and realize it no longer fits. Now, instead of giving it to Goodwill, I can super-shrink it!
My old hoodie:
Mix this together:
2 Tb. Hand Sanitizer
1 Tb. Astringent
1 t. Hydrogen Peroxide
3 cups water
(Do not actually try this. It will not produce the desired results.)
Update: I ‘shrunk’ my sweatshirt by making it into an infant sized shirt. I removed the zipper with a seam ripper and salvaged the ribbing and fabric. I even used the edges of the pocket and just sized them down.
It was not until after it was finished that my husband suggested I should turn it into an April Fool’s Joke. Good thing I had already taken a ‘before’ picture of my sweatshirt! Someday soon, I will share with you the pattern I created and a tutorial on how I made this mini sweatshirt.
This is one of my favorite sweatshirts, and it had gotten too small for me, so I’m glad I could turn it into something useful.
