Can you cut the hood off a hoodie?
To easily remove the hood, take a pair of sharp scissors and start cutting along the base of the hood where it meets the hoodie body. It’s important to cut right above the seamline so the stitches don’t unravel. Keep cutting from the front of the hood all the way around to the opposite side.
Using sharp scissors, cut from one side of the sweatshirt to the other, cutting through both the front and back of the sweatshirt. Make sure your sweatshirt lays flat the whole time so your cuts are even.
