Blanket to Hooded Sweatshirt

Gilbert says, hey mom do you care if I do something with my fleece blanket?
Trying to be open minded I say, what were you thinking?
I found someone making their own pattern for a sweatshirt he says, and I want to make one.
I say, take one of the sweatshirts you already have and we'll make a pattern. The above picture shows Gil sewing his super secret inside pocket with zip.
I kinda used what I know about knit block type sweaters to help him create his sweatshirt. 
He did 95% of the sewing, I helped with the hood where the shoulders needed to be adjusted.
Gil loves making things for himself.

I hope I don't have to buy him a new blanket now!
