A Jacket Made from a Sweatshirt

There is a jacket I made two or three years ago using a sweatshirt as the base. The centers of the flowers are fabric covered buttons. Love that look.
The jacket back. Made this by laying the first strip down then sewing the rest down and pressing them over as in paper piecing. (Click to enlarge)
