This is really clever, I love that you made blue tarp wearable and even fashionable (I'm curious about what the buttons look like close up)  Smiley

I'm a displaced Alaskan, too (from Anchorage, now in Alabama--AACK!). Your jacket is awesome and it made me laugh, because whenever we used to go Christmas caroling in Anchorage, we'd sing the Alaska Flag Song at each house for our grand finale. Thanks for sharing your project and for rekindling a fond memory.

If you were in Anchorage I would totally commission you to make me this jacket. This is the coolest thing ever. I've been on here all month trying to figure out a clever way to represent Alaska and you hit the nail on the head with Kodiak. Rain, tarps, Aluutiq culture, you couldn't have done better. And I, too have spent hours and hours in the Kodiak airport, lol.

i loved this project
it represents your hometown in so many different ways
i think it's really the essence of the challenge
great, awesome job!!!

and a question, is tarp confortable to wear?
i think i need a rain coat, and that pattern is really pretty, and tarp would work great for a rain coat...
the only problem is that i have to find out what is that called in spanish so i can buy it here in Chile (where i live) Tongue

What a great idea. I wonder if you make crunchy sounds when you move in the tarp. Alaska is a beautiful state, so thanks for giving a small history lesson to the craftsters.
