After countless articles and highlights in the British media denouncing young people who wear hoodies as evil, murderous hooligans I decided that I must immediatly get hold of a hoodie, and start my denounceing steretypes deely that I do.

So my Mum gave me an old Bhs (I believe) zip up hooded cardigan that was size 14. First problem: I'm a size 8. So I resized the hoodie, and thus it came to fit.

Then I thought that it looked a bit boring and after spying two dinosour hoodies in this forum, I thought: aha! So, following hoodie is inspired by those two. I thank the creaters muchly.

Here is a bad picture of the entire hoodie:

Close up on the spikes:

And close up on the embroidery on the pocket. Inspired by illustration in an old childrens book of a dinosour clutching an aeroplane. (Yes, it's an aeroplane, not a bird. Hush.) This is my first ever embroidery, after I decided I should work out how to do it. Am ordering the Stitch-It-Kit and I saw an example of this type of stich on Jenny Hart's website. So, I drew the picture and stiched. I don't think it's that bad for a first go, when it was a teach yourself, so hopefully I'll get better when I get the kit.

You can't really see the embroidery very well, so I'll try and get another photo.

Feedback please!

girlypirate - yeah, Tony Blair has been using them to illustrate the lack of "respect" that the young people of this country have.

Thanks for the comments  Cheesy

Yup thats what they've said on this side of the pond.Sad isn't it?That no-one can go out in hoodies without getting classed as yobs or hooligans.

Btw great job on the dino hoodie!!

Nice dino hoodie, I like how its from BHS - teach the biddys a thing or two Cheesy

I didn't know tony blair was attacking hoodie wearers, but they've been banned form bluewater shopping centre... Actually I think its people attacking chavs, without wanting to directly name a group in society. I wear hoodies (fashion hoodies) but I don't like chavs Tongue

An evolution of townies, **Usually** teenagers from working class backgrounds who wear tracksuit bottoms and sports branded tee shirts (like nike, addidas) and burberry (more often than not - fake) anything, caps, bags, scarfs, anything. Victoria Beckham is a chav (except her stuff is the REAL brands rather than fake Tongue) and I think Wayne Roonie's girlfriend was crowned Queen of the Chavs, heh. Teamed with the appearance is the attitude, swearing, smoking, acting hard, wouldn't be seen dead with a homecounties accent, Vandalism. Hence the connection with hoodies being bad. They just come up with the idea that hoodies = vandalism. So ban one, you solve the other. Damn i love politics...
