How to refashion and old sweatshirt using a scarf.
Do you have an old sweatshirt and an unused silk or satin print scarf just laying around in your closet? If you do (and you have basic sewing skills), then this is a super-duper easy DIY refashion which will give new life to a basic top! From Kenzo’s eye sweater to Mango’s scarf print sweatshirt tops, snazzy sweatshirts are all the rage. A do-it-yourself will be a one-of-a-kind design and will cost you practically close to nothing!

Here’s what you’ll need:
Sweatshirt and Scarf of your choice
Scissors and Pins
Needle and Thread

Love the look of this. Do you sew it by hand or by machine? And do you tack the scarf down anywhere other than the seams?

Thank you. I sewed it by hand because I found it easier for this particular DIY, even though a machine would work just as well. I cut the scarf along the seams of the front of the sweatshirt and just tucked in the edges along the seams while sewing.
