hoodies

I gave the young ladies in our family (girlfriends and wife)
hoodie sweatshirts but wanted to fancy them up a bit.



So . . . I bought a complimentary fabric to line the hoods.



Here is a view from the front





and the back



I just traced the hood on paper and then used it as a pattern to cut the fabric.



Finally I put a "scrappy looking" name label in the back.



Hmmm . . . I think I'll make one for myself.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and your sweet and encouraging comment! The support from blog friends like yourself is wonderful!
I love the hoodies with the complimentary fabric! Talk about taking it up a notch. You are an excellent seamstress. I bet they were a hit at Christmas.

Wow! What a great idea!

Thank you so much for commenting on my blog. I love the idea of having "theme dinner" My kids would love that and it seems like it would be kind of starting a family tradition. And thank you for the websites. I will, definitely, be checking them out!

Have a wonderful day!

How cute is that!!!??? I don't get how you did it though. I need to see it with my own eyes. Or you could just make me one. So adorable.
