Urban Unisex Hoodie

I actually had a little bit of sewing time yesterday. I was able to finish projects that have been sitting around gathering dust. 


I  made this Urban Unisex Hoodie by Heidi and Finn. I haven't tried it on Cenzo yet so I'm not sure of the fit. I can't even remember what size I cut out (it's been that long). It was pretty straight forward and I only changed two things. In the instructions it calls to finish the bottom before attaching the bottom band which is not necessary, especially when using a serger. When attaching the bottom band to the bottom of the shirt the seam gets finished. The other thing I did was use a cuff pattern from Ottobre. It's from the Muksis tee (Katie made a great version here). I just like the cuff so much I pretty much use it on all kid knit tops that call for a cuff.

I also made another pair of Sandbox Pants. I had planned on making these with the intended drawstring waistband but it invloved buttonholes and I wasn't in the mood so I quickly cut up an old red t-shirt in the recycle bin. I did it so quickly I accidentally left the serger seam on the outside in the center back but it really doesn't matter because it's for a 17 month old and I'm thinking he really couldn't care less. I also didn't quite figure the back pocket pattern correctly because I meant for the car to be centered.

Great start to the year! I love the Echino pockets. I have a little piece of the helicopters that I need to use that way - it isn't enough for a whole garment, but the boy loves it.

Super cute! I prefer that cuff on the hoodie, too. And I like the one button -- that's how I made mine as well. Way to start the new year!

Really gorgeous, I like your fabric combos. I haven't heard of Heidi & Finn patterns before, they're lovely.

I want the hoodie in my size!!!!!!!!! I love the fabric combo! And I screwed up almost all my placements when trying center anything from those pants. Freakin' love the red stripe! I've done NO sewing, but my boys pants are getting short and you may have inspired me.....xoxo

I just adore the hoodie. The color/pattern combo is super rad. And I like the off-center car!
