I was bored today, so I made a hoody. It's the first one I've ever made, and it turned out fantastic, except for the fact that the sleeves are a little tight, so I can't really wear it with anything but a tank top. Which I'm not wearing. Also, sorry for the funny face, my mom wouldn't take them unless I smiled. One more thing, I'm not really that fat, the sweatshirt is just real baggy.

I made this one a little short, but, whatever. I don't have enough left of the polkadots to create another tube to sew on. The sleeves weren't supposed to be green, but I ran out of pink...oops...in this case, winging it didn't quite work. (It's too short because I had to cut off some pink for the hood...). I like it...and from now on, it was supposed to have green sleeves and be short...

Great job!  I love the ears the most!

Thanks! It was supposed to have paw-pads on the palms of the sleeves, but they are a little too short to do that. I like the ears as well, but my lil'bro was making fun of me for it.

Little bros will do that. I love the fabric you chose to line and make your pocket! The ears are adorable too

Always looking for something to keep me busy.

It looks great!  Awesome choice of lining fabric!

Personal swaps are cool.

Thanks everyone! I only had a little bit of the paisley, and it's not stretchy, so I had to cut the slit in the front of it. It was only 16 inches high, so I just made the hood that tall. It's HUGE.

I'm in the process of making another one, and since I'm making rabbit ears for the dog, I was wondering if I should add rabbit ears to this hood.

Those are the best ears on a hood I've ever seen!  ROCKED This!!!  BTW, go for the bunny ears, then post a pic for us to see!!!!!!!

If you can't do it with duck tape...it can't be done!
