5oo4 20K Blog Tour – Halftime Hoodie

Congrats to the 5 out of 4 Patterns Group!  20,000 members and growing!  That is amazing!  And they deserve it.  They have some of the best sewing patterns around.

For this blog tour, I made the Halftime Hoodie.  This is a unisex hoodie that sews up quickly and looks very nice on.  It is available in a wide range of sizes from 2-18. The Halftime Hoodie includes the following options, hood or crewneck, regular or thumbhole cuffs, optional grommets or buttonholes for hood tie, and a kangaroo pocket. It wouldn’t be hard to hack inseam pockets on this one. I will have to try that when I make my own hoodie!

For my daughter’s Halftime Hoodie, I went with regular cuffs, and a lined hood.  The instructions were straightforward and I had no issues whipping this hoodie up.

My daughter loves it so much that she requested another one with a kangaroo pocket.  My girl loves pockets in everything.  I get fussed a lot if I don’t add pockets to my children’s clothing.

My daughter also loves cats so when I found this fleece cat fabric at my local Wal-Mart, I knew it would be perfect for this hoodie.  Now she will be the sweetest cat lady every time she wears it.

I had such a good time making this. It was a quick sew and I love anything that has cuffs and bands so that I don’t have to hem. I don’t mind hemming but for me it takes longer (only by about 5 or so minutes) since I have to convert my serger to coverstitch mode.
