I made this sort of as a combination of all the different jacket tutorials i've seen..but I messed around a bit because none of the jackets in the tutorials were lined, and i wanted my jacket and hood both lined.. i didnt line the sleeves because i am horrible horrible with sleeves, and I didnt want to waste the fabric =)
Hood is lined with this really awesome and thick furry snow leopard print (looks like rug fabric, but its soft, slightly stretchy, and really warm.)
The pink checkered stripes fabric is flannel, and the inside lining is textured pink cotton(?)
closeup of the bottom!
I used a zipper taken off from a old Ralph Lauren Backpack (hence the.. uh.. logo on the zipper >< not sure if you can see it)
it goes ALL THE WAY around the hood cuz it was so long!! =D
it doesnt have the bottom thing most zippers have (yknow on the bottom of hoodies, the metal thing to insert into the zipper ><;
so I had to just put a band through it so the zipper wouldnt fall off =d =)
My hoodie has ears.. how about yours? XP I stuffed them with the fuzzy furthing you ususally stuff pillows with =d they're like a huge mass of fibers and really fun to work wit h!!! =D although in hindsight, stuffing them really tightly was probably not too great of an idea.. neither was not leaving a big seam allowance =d
AND LOOK AT THE ZIPPER i'm so proud of it!!
