 I found these Where's Waldo children's curtains at a thrift store a few months back. I knew i had to make something amazing out of it, so i saved it until i found the wonderful  hoodie tutorial:


I knew it was meant to be, and i just happened to have some red and white striped fabric,cord, and beads to match!
(the hood is red+white stripes...doesn't show up well)

i made this little Waldo head out of shrink plastic, and i added the matching bead to the zipper.

close up of fabric.

sense the tut doesn't go into detail about the sleeves...(i followed step #3 and #12, but the sleeves ended up coming out way too tight around the arm), I thought I'd add  my way of doing it:
I measured the length around my shoulder +1 inch
the length around the elbow +1 inch
and the wrist +1 inch
and the length of the arm +2 inches.

 I also recommend sewing on the bottom edges on the sleeves before sewing the sleeves sides together, because sewing that trim on afterward is ridiculously hard

 My hoodie is fully lined, and I did this by making a slightly smaller hoodie in white fabric, turned it right side out, and fit it into the Waldo hoodie before sewing on the red trim edges.
I hope that helped some of you.

P.S If you are looking for Waldo, he isn't wearing shoes, he might not even be on this jacket!:P

I LOVE that zipper pull. Nice work on all the details you put in.

AMAZING! I love the hoodie, but I am seriously jealous about the fabric. I have been searching forever for fabric like that. My son has been obsessed with Waldo since before he was one (he's turning 11 next month.)

Great job and what attention to details!

Great fabric! I actually have those curtains and bed sheet set lying around. I used a bit of it to cover my algebra book.
