Let’s continue on with the sewing projects!
Football season is well over and the weather is getting warmer. But during football season, I got inspired with all the Seahawks fleece at the local fabric store to make some clothing for me and my hubby.
One of the first and easiest projects to do with fleece, IMO, is some lounge pants. I created some lounge pants with the Seahawks logo last year for my hubby. He loved them greatly. He wears them all the time.
With a couple pants under my belt and the need to try a different sewing project, I decided he needed a top to go with it. I took a hoodie that he enjoys wearing and created a pattern from it. I attempted the pattern in a test hoodie for me in some white and hot pink fleece It actually worked really great. I was surprised how easy it was “steal” a RTW pattern. Makes me feel unstoppable now. 🙂
So then I laid out blue, green, and grey fleece. I lined the hoodie with a the grey/green chevron pattern such like the “feathers” on the Seahawks uniforms. Now that the hoodie pieces are all together, the sewing commenced.
Hubby was so happy with his hoodie and it’s very, very warm. Great for football games! All in all, the pattern turned out to be a great one to keep in my arsenal and now I’m becoming more confident in creating my own patterns.
On to the next sewing project!
