Holey Hoodie

I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all your lovely comments here and on PR about the jacket I made my son. You have no idea what a smile they put on my face.

On Saturday I worked on another little number for my baby. I made him a "holey hoodie" last fall and he loved it, but sadly it's too small now. Since he loved that sweatshirt so much, I decided to surprise him with another one. The pattern is from Ottobre 4-2007-11. It's really generously wide, so I can see getting a few more years out of this pattern by just adding some length even tho I made it in size 110 (the biggest size) .


Up close of the pockets. I used the reverse side of my cover stitch to make to stitch the pocket down.



I think the pictures show how much he likes he new hoodie! :-) I wish I could keep him little, he's so darn much fun.

That is adorable! I've been eye-ing that pattern for my son and now that I've seen yours I am definitely going to have to make one.

Melissa, I don't know what's cuter, the top or the kid. I love those Ottobre patterns. Sure wish I was more into sewing when my DS was little but I missed the boat. What 14 yo wants Mom to sew for them?

Very cute, Melissa.

Another nice hoodie Melissa. This is a great pattern.

My DS keeps getting older too. Why do they do that? :) The nice thing though is they stay the same no matter how old they get. It's their personality not their age.

If my kids were still little I can guarantee that I would have made tons of these! I love it, and it looks like you used a good quality fabric too.

Hi Melissa,
I share your feelings. With every haircut Pelle seems to grow. He's 3 years old now and slowly he's losing some of the cuteness he had when he was younger.
Well, that goes on forever I'm afraid.
greetings, Ria (Oddwise).
