Eeee first post. Bear with me  Tongue

My brother gave me a ton of old sweaters, and found a zipper-up fleece with a collar and thought it would be better with a hoodie... Even better, with bear ears! So I cut the sweater in half, making the shrug, and used the cut-off, plus the collar to make the hood. I used the elastic waist and inserted it into the hoodie. I added two buttons to the front for closure and took in the sleeves a bit and ouila!

Now spring is here, I have a big thing for skirts and dresses so had to jump right on this one. I went to the thrift store recently, and found a ton of colorful oversized shirts so grabbed all of them.  Cheesy

I also created a lil tut for the skirts http://pokodesigns.webs.com/skirttut.bmp  Roll Eyes

Awesome! Really, these bear ears are stunning. I bet that makes people want to cuddle a lot.

And nothing beats a pussy cat who is wearing knee length boots!
