Well, I fell in love too and made my own version last fall. I don't know why I never posted it...but I just moved and was digging through some clothes I just brought over to the new house thinking "Why the hell did I never wear this?"

check out addictedtoplushies original version here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=54414.0...which looks a LOT better than mine!

Same concept, except that I added a zipper and made it a full hoodie.

I laid some reletively sheer white fabric over an old hoodie that I didn't like and traced over it to make the pattern pieces. All fleece, except for the heart-patterned fabric which was some type of light flannel. I used it to line the hood and the pockets too.

horrible close-up...

the side

the back

I had to hand-sew the cuffs onto the sleeves, which didn't turn out so great and are now trying to come unraveled Sad But they wouldn't fit around my sewing machine so it was the best I could come up with. No one ever taught me how to sew...I just kind of throw crap together. I'm sure there is some kind of trick to this that I just haven't figured out yet. Oh yeah, and I have a shitty, cheap sewing machine but it gets the job done. I'll save up for a new one eventually....if I can stop spending all my money  Roll Eyes

So whaddaya think?

that's so adorable!
I LOVE the sleeves and it looks so fuzzy and warm and nice.
I've been meaning to make one for forever..but I have no idea how to sew the spike-things on, and I don't have a sewing machine so it has to be hand done.

plus, I only have white vinyl and I don't know how well that'd work.

but you did a GREAT job!
I lovvve it.
