Last week, I chosen got to test out another pattern for Kitschy Coo! This time it was a reversible hoodie pattern. How fun! I finished the hoodie this weekend. This was a pretty intricate pattern but her instructions were easy to follow.
She suggests using two similar fabrics, either two wovens or two knits for compatibility purposes. Of course I decided to make it hard on myself, and used flannel for a lining and sweatshirt knit for the outside. It makes for exciting sewing! I really wanted to make the boy something warm so he could wear it the next few months. The flannel I had purchased a year or so ago to make a hoodie but never got around to it. For the sweatshirt fabric, I cut up an old sweatshirt of mine that never quite fit right. Yay for cheap projects!
The fit was spot on and the the boy really liked it. I love the dragon flannel, I think I am going to get some more to make some lounge pants for him. So this is the "inside":
The necessary cheese smile:
And the exterior (isn't he so stinkin' cute?):
Monster face (which is also necessary as a 2 year old):
I am really pleased with the finished product. Plus I am glad to have made the boy something. He tends to get the shaft when it comes to being sewn for.
Thanks again for choosing me as a test sewer Kitschy Coo!
