I have been dying to make a scoodie for a while now and since winter is just around the corner I thought this was the perfect time.





I used the rest of the fabric from my Halloween costume/Winter coat and hand painted some Steampunk gears and motif onto the hood.



The back is a little large, well a lot large, but I wanted a hoodie I could wear even if my hair was in a pony tail. I hate when hoodies are too small to fit my ponytail so I went a little overboard.




The faux fur lining is so soft and comfy. The blue fabric of the exterior is a beautiful quilters suede that I really want more of now (sadly its all gone).










To make the scoodie I used the instructions provided at the link below and then I made some alterations to work with my design. Thanks to the author for sharing her instructions.

Very nice!

The gears turned out nice. I like that you used silver with the blue. It makes seem appropriately arctic-themed.

I need me one of those for when I cross the bridge on my walk home from work every night. I bet it fights the wind awesomely!!

No sooner did I make this and the weather turned from reasonably warm for our region to freezing winds and our first snow/sleeting for the season. But at least I got to bust out the scoodie when I walked the dog tonight.

I love the steampunk-iness of this!  The gears are beautifully painted.
