I was inspired by this post - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=160286.0 but wasn't really into the birds (even tho birds are awesome).

So I took a plain grey hoodie made of t shirt fabric (not the normal sweatshirt kind) that I got on clearance somewhere for around 5 bucks. Sorry, no before pic.

I added some branches with a stencil and some fabric paint (which I will never use again as it is already chipping off  Angry lame). Not really loving the placement, but the next one I'm doing is much cooler. I'll post it once I finish.

Then I wanted cherry blossoms, but didn't really want to paint them on (as my painting skills are uber lame) and I didn't want to spend hours cutting out tiny pieces of pink fabric that I didn't even have and would have to go and pick out anyways.

Easy solution? Buy 2 stems of pink baby's breath at Michael's for a buck apiece, take them all apart and just sew the little fabric blossoms to the hoodie.

On to the pictures!

the whole thing (hanging on my wall with black thumbtacks on the sleeves)

Sometimes I think this is really frickin cute, other times I think it's dorky. Either way I'll wear it a bunch. Whaddya think?

If I was ever stranded on a deserted tropical island, within a month I'd have built my own Craft Store and have trained monkeys to work the registers.

I heart personal swaps.

I think it's awesome. I love how it has a 3-D effect with the flowers. Great job!
