The Transforming Hoodie–More Than Meets the Eye

As you might have noticed by now, I get a kick out of the many ways people have devised to re-purpose their old t-shirts and apparel. In previous posts I’ve shared how you can turn an old t-shirt into a reusable grocery bag and even a stuffed pillow chair. Both of those projects required the use of additional materials, and in the case of the pillow chair, some significant sewing skills. So, what if you could temporarily re-purpose a shirt on-the-fly with no additional materials?

Well, the geniuses at Conceptual Devices have figured out how to do just that with the always-versatile hooded sweatshirt. The image above provides step-by-step instructions in how to turn your favorite hoodie into a temporary laptop bag! But that’s not all. Check out their website for more cool ways to transform your hoodie, including an impromptu pillow and even a baby carrier!

For those of you that are more visual learners, watch this video from Lifehacker for a full-motion demonstration of the hoodie laptop bag in action.
