After countless articles and highlights in the British media denouncing young people who wear hoodies as evil, murderous hooligans I decided that I must immediatly get hold of a hoodie, and start my denounceing steretypes deely that I do.
So my Mum gave me an old Bhs (I believe) zip up hooded cardigan that was size 14. First problem: I'm a size 8. So I resized the hoodie, and thus it came to fit.
Then I thought that it looked a bit boring and after spying two dinosour hoodies in this forum, I thought: aha! So, following hoodie is inspired by those two. I thank the creaters muchly.
Here is a bad picture of the entire hoodie:
Close up on the spikes:
And close up on the embroidery on the pocket. Inspired by illustration in an old childrens book of a dinosour clutching an aeroplane. (Yes, it's an aeroplane, not a bird. Hush.) This is my first ever embroidery, after I decided I should work out how to do it. Am ordering the Stitch-It-Kit and I saw an example of this type of stich on Jenny Hart's website. So, I drew the picture and stiched. I don't think it's that bad for a first go, when it was a teach yourself, so hopefully I'll get better when I get the kit.
You can't really see the embroidery very well, so I'll try and get another photo.
