Hi
This is my first completed project post on Craftster and my first time sewing a hoodie.  It's not really Panda inspired in that it looks like a panda or anything, I was just diggin' on some cute Panda pictures over on deviantArt the other day and thought how much they rocked the black and white.  I just so happened to have a couple of choice hunks of stretch knit and a nifty print in my stash and thought it would be nice to have a lighter weight hoodie for the warmer weather coming up (but I'm in Portland, it can rain at any moment, so a hoodie is a must for me).  I whipped this up a little yesterday and a little today.

Front with the hood down:                 Front with the hood up:               
               
   

Huge Kangaroo pocket for keys, wallet, etc.


Back:


It is short sleeved, with the long black sleeves removable depending on the weather.

And a little bonus, I embroidered this little 2inch Panda patch while my little one played on the playground today.  I hid it in the center back, right below the hood, so you only see it when the hood is up:


How did I do?  This is my first time, so be gentle.

and thanks for looking!

Oh that's so fantastic!
That's brilliant - much better than my first hoodie!
Did you use a pattern,  a tutorial or did you guess?

Thanks for all the great comments. 
I didn't use a pattern for this, I just kind of pieced it together as I went.

I really liked making it, I think I'll be making a few more hoodies!
