I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find a pattern of Naruto's Jacket. Its so oddly shaped with the huge neck and all and was wondering if there was a place that has the patern so I could get working on making it myself (I am very new to sewing).

It's pretty much just a regular jacket with an extended collar. Really all you'll need to do is get a jacket pattern and alter it by extending the collar by about 5-8 inches. Then when you're wearing it, just zip it all the way up and fold it down half way. You may need to do some other alterations to get the blue shoulder panels laid out right, but you should be able to find something very close.

Fortunately, I answered this in another thread about a month ago. :)
Heres the pattern (Men's size 10) at 50% scale.

You will probably need to adjust the pattern to fit your shoe size, but it shouldn't be too difficult. I would try it as a paper pattern first, then make alterations based on the way that fits.
Basic instructions:
1. sew the base and the ankle together. (the ankle strip will be longer than the base due to poor measuring on my part. Just trim off the excess and it should work fine. )
2. sew the back of the connected pieces together, making a sock-like shape.
3. cut out a rectangular strip of craft foam measuring 1.5"x7.5"
4. fold the toe cuff in half over the strip of craft foam and sew it inside.
5. sew the toe cuff to the toe edge of the base.
6. roll the ankle cuff so when it is flattened it measures 1.5 inches wide. (make sure you have at least a quarter inch leftover to sew to the base)
7. sew the ankle cuff to the base.
8. fold the bottom edge of the base in about a quarter inch, then sew along the bottom edge of the base to finish it.
9. hot glue the bottom of the base the sandal (make sure you've adjusted them to fit before gluing).
10. enjoy your sandals.

Well, from all the patterns I looked at, Simplicity 5477 was the closest, however Simplicity 5878 (pattern B) could work as well.
Hope that helps. :)

Oh, btw Green Pepper (http://www.thegreenpepper.com) #514 or #506 would work as well. You can find them at most JoAnn Fabric stores.
