Have you gotten your Perfect Pattern Parcel yet? We are down to the last few days. Be sure you hop over and check out all the great boy patterns available. The bonus pattern in the boy’s Pattern Parcel is the Knight Hoodie by Charming Doodle. This is the perfect jacket for a little boy getting ready to fight his own crusade!
It’s been a long time since I worked with sweatshirt fleece. Although some of the seams got pretty thick, my machine did not complain too much. The directions are well written and easy to follow. There are fun accents on this hoodie that really makes it special. Arm, shoulder and hood armor are fun and easy to sew.
The buttons I chose reminded me of a coat of arms. The perfect accent for a Knighted Crusader. I like the way all the pieces are prepped before you begin sewing the garment. Once you begin you keep on trucking. There is no stopping to construct the shoulder armor or the the hood armor. All those pieces now just get attached as you go! This is my favorite method of construction.
With the days getting shorter and the sun lower in the sky, the cool mornings tell us fall is definetly on the way. This will be a good jacket for the transition season we are entering.
Happy Sewing, Donna
