My daughter gave me this lovely hoodie to recycle. For some strange reason the neck had shrunk so nobody could wear it. I managed to cut a 17inch(43cm) square from the front and back. I'd had the appliqué balloons for a while now so just ironed them onto the back and stitched round them to make sure they stayed there. The front (now back) pocket was a bonus as it may cut down the time I spend looking for the TV remote.
