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!

That's really cool!  I love the pattern, and I'm in awe of your accidental-pattern-alignment skills.  Congrats on the win, you deserve it!

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.
