Title: Shower Curtain Hoodie?
Post by: ryanmoore on February 19, 2008 05:10:22 PM
ok so i was part of PROJECT THREADBANGER
this month , and they have monthly challenges
like craftster does,and so their challenge was :

Make a shirt, jacket, hoodie, coat or dress out of something that isn't originally intended to be clothing. This can include around the house textiles, such as curtains, table cloths or bed sheets, or even something more creative.


so i go material hunting at GOODWILL

and i find these

 A SHOWER CURTAIN  with a really cool print on it



And a ROYAL BLUE JERSEY BEDSHEET




and since i have a little expirience in hoodies, i decide to make one 
but this time i couldn't use a pattern, since that is against the rules.
so i had to make my own pattern, ( its alot harder than it seems)

and now since i keep rambling heres the pics 



but one good thing about making my own pattern, is that i can make thing s fit
EXACTLY how i want them to. So i made the sleeves and the body alot more fitted than my other ones.







i really love the way the zipper turned out
and somehow i got the pattern on the front to line up
i have no idea how i did that , i probably couldn't i had tried to .
I am in love with this hoodie, its water resistant, since it is a shower curtain, but its warm since its a bedsheet
what do you think?

oh and BTW i won the challenge
i am so excited!!!

The title and the before pictures had me a bit sceptical but I am a total convert! I'm also not at all surprised you won, it looks amazing. I doubt I could ever make a shower curtain look like a professional piece of clothing like you did. Good on you!

Post by: hotty_blond2000 on February 19, 2008 07:47:48 PM
excellent work.
It takes a very crafty mind to see a hoodie when looking at a shower curtain.
kudos to you.

Oh man! You'll be getting serious double-takes on the street with this. Faucets? Faucets? How f'in original is that. You have got the Lucky Thrift Store Fairy on your side, Dude...no doubt! Well done.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR POSTING THIS!!! You are brilliant!!! I live in a coastal city and we get a fair amount of rain, and yet you can never find nice raincoats anywhere!  Also it's often pretty windy here, so umbrellas are useless! But thanks to you I can finally make myself a beautiful raincoat! Shower curtains... man, why didn't I ever think of that??? I am going out to look for a cool shower curtain tomorrow, thank you so so much for the inspiration!!! And congratulations on your win, you deserve it, you did a really great job!


Title: Re: Shower Curtain Hoodie?
Post by: jwill on February 19, 2008 08:39:26 PM
I AM IN LOVE!!
when I first saw the fabric, i wasn't sure about it.. But that hoodie is absolutely amazing.
Great Job!


Title: Re: Shower Curtain Hoodie?
Post by: swtater123 on February 19, 2008 09:25:20 PM
Wow!  I love that hoodie!  I never would've thought to use a shower curtain for material, but that's really a great idea.  The print on the curtain is great too.  Congrats on winning the challenge!


Title: Re: Shower Curtain Hoodie?
Post by: M Fox on February 19, 2008 09:27:44 PM
Congrats on winning!  You definitely deserve it!
And I second the idea about the raincoat - never thought to make one from a shower curtain, and I've seen a lot of curtains that are really pretty, but wouldn't go with our bathroom - now I have an excuse to buy one.  ;D
Thanks!

Post by: kentuckynucky on February 20, 2008 07:21:26 AM
I can't believe you were able to do that!  Like the others, I was totally skeptical when I first saw the fabric choices.  Now, I want one of my own!  I just might have to try my own some day.


Title: Re: Shower Curtain Hoodie?
Post by: colourandy on February 20, 2008 07:24:29 AM

I must add to the kiss-assery and say this completely rocks! I love that fabric- it looks like something that should be mass produced in those trend stores.

Also, I want to know what you won. Congrats, cause Threadbanger is like the bible of recons.


Title: Re: Shower Curtain Hoodie?
Post by: the.fee.fairy on February 21, 2008 04:34:18 PM
Its a great hoodie! Well done on winning, and well done on having such an eye for a fabric!

The only question is, does it rustle? Or is it more of a fabricy shower curtain than a plasticky one?

It looks great. I wish my local charity shops had stuff like that!

o.O Wow...

That's a really cool looking hoodie/rain jacket (?) I can't believe you made that up WITHOUT A PATTERN. I wish I possessed your crazy freehand patterning skills.

perhaps you should call this a "rain hoodie" XD



Title: Re: Shower Curtain Hoodie?

You deserved to win!  The shower curtain seems like it would be lightweight, the print is cool, and you lined it with something soft and comfortable!  This is an excellent recon! I love that you went to the thrift store and used something that would have possibly bee trashed! yay!

Post by: jinx77 on March 15, 2008 09:55:06 AM
wow, great idea! it looks awesome :)

have you worn it already? cause i was wondering, since showercurtain is water resistant, how is the air circulation? does it get hot and sweaty inside of the jacket after a while or is it ok?

that is absolutely freakin' amazing that you didn't use a pattern for this! I'm so envious- I couldn't sew a cube without a pattern...  ::)

And I love the shower curtain!! Makes me wonder if I could score some cool looking shower curtains for a fun project....  ??? ;D

Awesome job. Congrats on your well deserved win!

Along with everyone else, I am thoroughly impressed by your skills and creativity.
Did you have to use a heavy duty needle on your sewing machine for the shower curtain material? Thanks, & congrats again!

I Love it! It looks really cool! When I first saw the curtain I was like 'is this person nuts?!' and then when I saw the finished product I was like 'whoa! I love it!' good job.

that is such a cool idea!  i saw another post about someone that made a dress out of an ikea shower curtain which at first seemed a bit bizarre, but it turned out she wore it to the glastonbury and then it made so much more sense - mud resistant clothes for the muddiest music festival!  I was thinking about making a hoodie sometime, and now the idea of a water resistant one makes it an even more attractive idea.  and well done on making the pattern yourself, i've always found it really hard!

When I first saw this post on Threadbanger I was so amazed.
Now, I admit I forgot about it, but I want thank you for posting it here because you're the reason I started looking through my local thrift store, and the reason I've started thinking outside the box for my creations and their construction lol

You've given me so many ideas!

Now, if only I could find a good shower curtain (all the ones there are paper thin) lol
