That's really cute and kinda sleek but I think PJ should stick to her dirty grunge guitar sound. It's a very nice Tartan does it belong to a clan? I never knew what plaid was until just now - now I know it's just what they call Tartan in the US. Smiley

I'm doing some costumes for a play and making baby clothes for some friends with newborns (similar kinda thing - baby animal hooded jump-suits{kigurumi}) + a lot of other non-sewing stuff on but I'll definitely make at least one more hoodie for the tutorial which I'll aim to complete at least in time for new sewers to have made by Halloween. I've never made a tutorial before and although they're easy steps - there's a lot of them to write out. I've also never made a scale pattern in a graphics program before but that shouldn't take too long and I'll post that up before the tutorial in case any accomplished sewers just want the blocks.

I'd be excited to see other peoples variations and interpretations of it, although I was originally inspired by the Kigurumi on Japanese fashion sites so I can't take all the cred.^__^

Thanks, I bet you could - it would make a great beginner project; polar-fleece is very forgiving and inexpensive, you don't really have to worry much about fit with hoodies, you could find free blocks/patterns online, in library books or it's easy to rip the block from a hoodie you already own (i ripped the blocks for this from a plain hoodie I made previously then just altered it to a bear), it's a good introduction to inserting zippers or you could use buttons, it's mostly just long straight seams to sew and most importantly it will still look cute and cool with some messy stitches. I'll try my hand at a tutorial if you like.

I saw this show the other day for the first time. Your cupcakes are very recognizable.

What on earth possessed you? It's either really brilliant or madness.

I've had both a speedball kit and a gocco for a couple of years and never been brave enough to use them ever. What are some good/the best projects? I don't really wear printed t's , does the gocco or speedball method give better results?

They're just peachy! I think I may try my hand at an aviator cap this week.

Fan expo?

So it's not quite completed, I had to order the cord (white), cord stops (black) and eyelets (black) for the hood online as they were not stocked at my local lincraft, so they won't arrive for about a week and the ribbing on the bottom is only pinned on until then so I can make no visible seams - it would almost be reversible if I had a reversible zip and pockets on the inside, it's lined with fleece so is very warm. You can't really see the side front pockets as the top stitching is white. I named it Otto ^__^

Please ignore the prominent apple logo I wasn't trying to advertise apple or the iPhone.
