This hoodie sweater is amazing, unique, and so well done! Kudos to this talented Seamstress and her wonderful shop! My hoodie was shipped out the same day and arrived fast! I love the fact that this shop upcycles material/clothing, and creates a wonderful new item! I am very pleased with my purchase and would definitely buy from again!

Hope Floats on!

HopeFloatsUpcycled is a small business based in Seattle, WA and was founded in 2011 by me!

My Love for sweaters started when I was just a wee young girl. This may have a little to do with the fact that living in Seattle almost necessitates a sweater year round. :) I grew up sewing many of my dresses for school, and well, one magical day I came across some awesome up-cycled work on Etsy and it was love at first sight. My love for sewing and sweaters were combined into one!

I love to save the earth in any way I can, and most of all love to be unique. My husband says Im the freak flag in our relationship, and I have to agree. I love to be unique, its what makes the world interesting right? If you feel the same, then take a look around and feel at home :)

Additional policies and FAQs
My items are hand made and I take special care to ensure they are of the highest quality.
All fabrics that have gone into creation of your pieces have been laundered prior to use.
Please make sure that you DO NOT Place your items in the wash unless I send you a note with your item that they are washer safe!
Most contain wool which will shrink! To keep your items looking their best you should carefully hand wash cold and lie flat to dry. So many different knits and fabrics go into these pieces that you can never be sure what might continue to shrink.

If you do decide to throw yours in the wash it is at your own risk!
