Today Dianna from Whatever Dee Dee Wants is here to share her New Years ReSewLution with us!

I ‘met’ Dianna early last year when she reached out to me for her Bloggers Spring Fling Series, and I have been following along ever since. Whatever Dee Dee Wants is a lifestyle blog that features all sorts of fantastic ideas! I love finding new things to do, see or try – and Dee Dee satisfies that need fabulously.

She has such fabulous creations that I want to try…

Made by either herself, or another fabulous blogger that she is featuring on her site…

And lets not forget about the things that make me drool…

Whatever Dee Dee Wants is such a fun site that I love to browse and am particularly partial to…it gave a blogger like me a chance to be featured when very few people knew who I was :). Thanks for that Dee Dee!

I am honored and humbled to welcome Dianna from Whatever Dee Dee Wants to the New Years ReSewLution Series.

Welcome Dee Dee!

I have been wanting to make my son a dinosaur hoodie sweatshirt for quite a while. I went as far as buying him a sweat shirt to make one two years ago and just never got around to it. When Jessica asked me to be part of her ReSewLution series I knew I had to make the dinosaur sweatshirt.

There are a few different ways to make the dino hoodie, I will show you how I made mine.

It was really fast and easy to make!

You will need: 1 hooded sweatshirt, felt, scissors, needle, thread and an iron.

Step 1: Cut the felt into diamond shapes.

I used 13 diamonds (mine are about 2″ x 4″) for a 3T sweatshirt.

Step 2: Fold the sweatshirt in half down the middle and iron, making sure to leave a visible crease.

Step 3: Lay the sweatshirt flat with the back face up. Place the middle of the felt diamonds next to each other (without overlapping) on the crease.

Step 4: Sew down the middle of the diamonds (I used my sewing machine but you can do this by hand).

Step 5: Fold the diamonds in half to make a triangle. Press with iron.

Step 6: Sew the triangles closed.

If you want the triangles to stay nice and stiff you can use interfacing.

Easy right? Now your kids will think you are the coolest mom around!


Dianna, that dino hoodie is so cute! I am loving the little boy dinosaur craze that seems to be hitting blogland, and this is fantastic! Thank you so much for being here and sharing this awesome tute.
