hi there everyone!
im sophie and its my first post on here
i should post a lot more really as i got a load of stuff made but decided to go with this for now as its my absolute fave!
alabama 3 are one of my fave groups (for people that dont know who they are, a lot dont seem too, they are the group that sang the theme tune for sopranos 'woke up this morning' they totally rock!) and started making it ages ago then much to my delight for my birthday in september hubby got me tickets to see them in november and as i dont get much time it was a mad rush to get it finished intime and i finished on the morning of the night i was going!
its made out of 3 different tops, a black thick long sleeved top a cropped hooded red/black top and an old black/red top of my daughters and some skull fabric i had, gremlins have unfortuantly got to my pc and made my before pictures dissapear i cant for the life of me find them.
i used the black top as the base,cut the arms of the black top, cut the arms of the cropped top sewed bits of them together as i wanted wider sleeves than what the cropped top sleeves were like and made puffed sleeves which was my first attempt at that and as pleased at how easy it was to do and that they came out ok! and added some of the skull fabric in to them too, my daughters top was used round the bottom bit and for the heart pocket and the ribbing from the cropped top was used around for the bottom of the jumper, sorry if it sounds confusing!! i used the hood from the cropped top and added in the skull fabric and lined it with the skull fabric too, my first attempt at lining a hood too which i was pleased with the results, i also used some red fold over elastic where the hood joined to the top to keep it in theme with the colours.
i cut out an alabama 3 logo with red felt and sewed it on at an angle then done a tshirt transfer for the main pic on the top and then a logo transfer for the on the pocket.
on the back i fabric painted on some lyrics from one of my fave songs of theirs too sick too pray and another transfer,
i love this hoody so much and it came out exactly how i wanted it too, which is always a bonus
