February Finish – Photo Heavy Post

I finished my February goal and I increased my clothing sewing abilities!  I am super excited about the hoodie I made Anne and the best part is…she is super excited about it too!Giraffe Hoodie 1 - http://www.sewbittersweetdesigns.comI took Anne down by the water in downtown Olympia and we did a little photo shoot. She was shockingly cooperative, so naturally, being the super proud mommy that I am…I took as many pictures possible of her.  She opted not to have ears and horns on the hoodie after seeing it in this state.

Pattern Details: Modified Charlie Tee & Hoodie by Fishsticks Designs
(my modifications include removing all knit fabrics and using fleece only, also, I removed the bottom band to allow more freedom of movement.)

Pattern Sewing Level: Advanced Beginner

Would I recommend this pattern: Yes, a couple steps I had to re-read several times, but I got the whole hoodie together in one day!

Materials – Blizzard Fleece from JoAnns

Model – my precious Anne
