The Sewing Rabbit sharing a tutorial and pattern pieces for making your own dinosaur hoodie. I mean...what little boy doesn't want to be a dinosaur? And the great thing about a hoodie like this is that it's not 'too costume-y' so it can be worn anytime, Halloween included!
Speaking of Halloween...if you haven't already gotten the Halloween Treat Bag pattern go get it now! You still have plenty of time to sew a fun treat bag for your little one. And for The Sewing Rabbit readers I've created a coupon code so you can get the pattern for only $5. Use the code RABBIT in my etsy store. But hurry, the coupon will expire soon!
Now...back to hoodies. I used one pattern and created four completely different looking hoodies.
here). My five year old girl got a pink, ruffly hoodie (more details about that tomorrow) and for my six year old son, I made a knight-inspired hoodie.
A KNIGHT! I am in love with his sweatshirt and he is too! It was 80 degrees yesterday and he wore it to school. It made me giggle and feel all warm and fuzzy at the same time because he really loves it and feels special in it.
The idea for this hoodie originally came from an etsy store I stumbled across making knight hoodies. They were SO cool and also very expensive. Now I know why. This hoodie was quite difficult to sew and took me more than two days of work! (The other three hoodies combined only took me a day.)
I originally started out trying to create a pattern and tutorial for YOU to sew one too...but whoa...the details got a little overwhelming and it would have been the world's longest tutorial. If you're really interested in a tutorial (and pattern pieces) for this hoodie please leave me a comment and let me know. If enough are interested I'll be happy to put it together. (UPDATE: I have decided to create a full pattern for the Knight Hoodie and it will be released soon! Be sure to follow me on facebook or the blog so you get the details when it's released.)
