Buying a hoodie turns out to be mighty expensive. What if you can turn any tshirt of yours into a hoodie by making this hood with scraps you have in your fabric stash and stitch it to your clothes. Instant Hoodie – yay.If you want a full on hooded scarf with pockets checkout this tutorial. 

Make the pattern first- mark it directly on the fabric
