After popping over and reading about it, I thought, 'Awesome idea, I should participate!'
Then I realised when the creators of the challenge were posting the fruits of their labour, and the link party: today.
'Eek!' went I. But I'd already decided to do it. I trawled all the lovely things I've pinned in search of something I can make in a day. And I refound this, which I pinned just recently:
I love the original, the moment I saw it I thought, "I have to make one!" (or two or three...). Then I did that naughty thing: I pinned it and did nothing.
Cue today, I abandoned all thought of NaNoWriMo, dragged out some fabrics and got sewing!
So here is mine:
This was a great stash-busting project as I was able to break into some of my huge collection of fabrics! I've had the fake fur for years--I bought it from Trago Mills whilst on holiday and (since it was cheap) bought rather a lot. I don't even remember why I thought I'd need that much; so far it's made two furry claw scarves, the above hood, some cat ear hair clips and been used to customise a jumper. And there's still some left! The gingham was originally destined to be a skirt or dress, but I never got around to making it, and the vinyl is leftover from a costume.
I had a few issues with the pockets! They ended up pretty deep...which is okay for me, since I have long fingers and long arms, and like to bury my hands right inside pockets :)
Wish I'd heard of the Pinterest Challenge sooner, it would have been fun to get more crafts done!
Anyway. The lovely people that came up with the challenge have made some fantastic stuff. Check out their posts here:

Now I suppose I should get on with NaNoWriMo...
