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 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!!!
