So...this is my first challenge...and i was probably too ambitious...here's the story of my inspiration...I was looking at the challenge for this month...and I wasn't paying attention while eating ramen noodles...long story short...I spilled food on my shirt, grabbed the first clean shirt i saw (which happened to be my twister shirt...) and...that is where i got my inspiration...

I found my old twister mat...then got to work on that saturday...The pattern i drafted in about an hour...minus the sleeves and hood...(I just made that pattern up as I went...)  sorry i don't have any in-process pics Tongue

and here are the finished pics...

here you can see the sleeve...i used the twister at both ends to do both sleeves Cheesy ooh. and you can kind of see how it is fullllllly lined

andddd here you can see the back pleat thing and the hoooood...

andddd more detail of the hood, and you can see the epic anchor lining  Cheesy

and the pocket...it makes me smile Smiley  i put my measuring tape sticking out of it so you can see it's a pocket...

and here are the details of the cuffs on the sleeves...I cut out the hands and feet from the game board and used them as fake buttons for them...my left arm has a foot on it and the right arm has a sock on it  Grin

haha and just because my friend is so awesome..she did this for me  Wink i love this pic...we were fooling around at the catholic church up the street from my house...cause they have epic stairs...so yeah, all the pics are courtesy of Amber and the catholic church Cheesy all in all, it took me from about 11 a.m. to around 8 p.m. of pretty much constant work...(aside from my machine dying, and me having to steal my mom's...hehehe) thankssss  ooh. and p.s. i did this alllll without a dress form...i made this 2 weeks ago...and got a dress form yesterday Tongue yay for pinning things to yourself!

I love this and I wish I had one for myself. Cheesy It looks like you made it very well. I've sewn Twister mats before and I know they like to pull apart if you are just a bit off so great job!

That's pretty rad!
This is definitely one of those "wish I had thought of that" projects Grin You really did a fantastic job. Even if I had thought of it, I know it wouldn't be as well done!
You rock...great work!

This rocks, though I can't find that button. You are really way cool to design this. Keep up to good work!

NEW REQUEST: Need quilting fabric with ONLY purple, grey, green. Solids or Prints in any combination/shades, but NO OTHER COLORS ALLOWED. HELP! They are hard to find.
