Well, I'm doing well, and keeping up with the days. This morning I wasn't sure what I was going to make, but Elijah helped me decide.
This morning he chose is clothes, some shorts a t-shirt and this hooded vest that I made him 2 years ago!!! Needless to say, it doesn't fit him anymore and he was very upset about it..."make me another one please, with cars on the pockets" he asked so nicely.
So how could I refuse him?
I mashed two of my patterns together to get this vest, both in size 4y.
For the width and length I used the Streetsmart Sweatshirt Collection and for the neck hole, shoulders and arm scye I used the 4 seasons tank & tee as the streetsmart sweatshirt is a raglan style and not able to be sleeveless.
I also modified the hood a wee bit so that it met in the middle, to be the same as his last one.
I also changed up the pocket a little but adding ribbing along the edge, but it didn't work out quite as I hoped, it is functional but I'm not too pleased with how it looks. Not how I envisioned it.
Super excitement to discover the pocket went right though. Hello!!
All in all I think he was pretty stoked with his new hoodie and at first he wouldn't take it off, even though it was super hot in the house.
I'm sewing along with KCW
