Where the HELL is my chiffon?

My best friend is turning 21 in April, and I wanted to make her something fun.  Although she doesn't craft much, she appreciates my handmade gifts since the rest of her family is pretty lazy with gift giving (usually a check in a hallmark card).  Anyway, I just finished making her a hoodie with a nice big Tinkerbell patch on the back. 

Front (just a plain grey knit with blue rib knit)

Back (store bought patch attached with steam-a-seam)

I also made her some glasses for our favorite show, Ghost Hunters. 

I wrote the rules for the drinking game using a Sharpie Paint pen and added:

A cute little ghost at the bottom of each glass.

After April 5th, I should get some action shots from the birthday girl!

Sorry for the long post, but I hope you all like it!

Hee, I love the Ghost Hunters drinking game glasses, especially the little ghost on the bottom.

"Maybe he won't fight."  "Will he bleed?  That's all we care about."

Is he willing but not able to prevent evil?  Then he is impotent.  Is he able but not willing?  Then he is malevolent.  Is he both able and willing?  Whence then is evil?  --Epicurus

I love Ghost Hunters too!  Would you mind filling us in on what the glass says? 

Your Tinkerbell hoodie is perfect!  So well-made!  I'm sure she's going to love these gifts.

Thanks! I'm actually really proud of the hoodie because i did topstitching on most of the seams.  I usually don't have the patience for stuff like that (especially if it's for me)! 

The rules that I put on the glasses are to take 1 drink when:
Someone shakes hands
An EMF or EVP is defined
Steve explains his fears
Jason says "Me and Grant"
Grant says "What the Frig"
Someone says "We're here to help"
Brian gets in trouble
Someone catches an orb
Brian says "Swear to God, dude"

The back says Chug if they call the place haunted!

Great job on the hoodie! I'm jealous of your skills.  Smiley I love the colors you picked too.
The drinking game is such a great idea! I never would have thought of something like that for a birthday gift. Your friend is lucky to have a friend like you.
