Favorite Patterns Valentine Style


I’ve been loving stocking my kids closets with warm, comfy sweatshirts.  They are the first things they reach for all winter long.


This guy outgrew his beloved flannel front Samson Sweater and it was about time he got a new version.  The Samson Sweater (affiliate link- I get a small kickback if you purchase through Love Notions links in this post) has tons of options- crewneck, hoodie, button-front cardigan.  This simple relaxed raglan style is such a great fit.  I absolutely love this Mammoth Plaid Flannel/charcoal french terry combo (all fabric from Raspberry Creek Fabrics).  I didn’t make any modifications to use this woven as the front piece and the fit is fantastic!


My oldest daughter got another Sloane Sweater (affl. link) because we can’t get enough cute sweatshirts!  I took the same plaid flannel and cut a simple heart.  I serged the edges then edgestitched it on.  It was looking a little too plain jane so my Cricut came to the rescue.  In five minutes flat we had the ‘love’ cut and ironed on!  I think it’s the perfect finishing touch!


This cute fabric combo just jumped into my arms during my last trip into Raspberry Creek.  I sewed up a new Toaster Sweater for me in this pretty quilted knit (coming soon to the blog too!) and I couldn’t waste any of it!  I sewed up another favorite pattern- the Hey June Hatteras Hoodie view B.  It’s one of my go-to patterns when I want to do a little color-blocking.  I mixed in the Salmon Dots in french terry and Light grey french terry for bands and I’m loving this fun fabric mix!  I modified the pattern just a bit by doing an extended cowl neckline.  I simply used the band length and widened the width to 6″ to give it a cute slouchy turtleneck look.  It’s an extra cozy addition!


A little girl in pink polka dots just kills me!

My kids should be set in the sweatshirt department for awhile!
