This merino hoodie is a firm favourite at the moment. Not sure why it took me until spring to remember the pile of merino off cuts i had lurking in my stash but no matter...this hoodie was done in time for the snow. Perfect. The hood lining is made from a merino blanket Jed had as a baby. You can see him rocking it HERE. I had Nancy Langdon and Sabine Pollehn's Sewing Clothes Kids Love book out from the library and used their Imke shirt pattern and chose the pixie hood option. This is a great book - full of loveliness. They encourage fiddling with their patterns and embellishing. I like that. (You know how i have trouble sticking to the pattern!). The Imke pattern can be used to make long sleeve shirts and t-shirts too. It'll be getting good use in the years to come i think.
Another good link for tutorials for groovy boys clothes and accessories is Dana from MADE's Celebrate the Boy series she wrote/ collated. Click HERE for her boys stuff. She has more of her tutorials for kids HERE. Including her 90 minute boat neck shirt which has reached a sort of cult like following in crafty-nerdy-sewing mama circles. I haven't tried it yet. One talented lady that Dana.
Sew Mama Sew's archives are always a good place to look around for tutorials. HERE's the link to their boys sewing month tutorials. A few of you were asking about fast and furious pants tutorials, there is one in there. Happy sewing.
Next up: seven days of blogging...get ready!
