Gorgeous fabric gets me EVERY TIME! When Gemia from Phat Quarters Fabric and Kelly from Handmade Boy mentioned a tour featuring Monaluna’s newest fabric line, Simple Life, I jumped on board in no time! Throw in a chance to sew for this kiddo and I was in heaven!
I sewed up a Submarine Pullover from Shwin Designs for my man. I used this incredibly soft poplin (available in the Phat Quarters Shop) for the main. This fabric is quite possibly the softest cotton on the planet. I would love a whole wardrobe for myself made out of it. It drapes beautifully but still has a bit of weight making it great for so many projects!
The hood is lined in the cutest bear fabric- Nature Walk, also available at Phat Quarters. This color combo is so cute and stylish. I really love that this line is so ideal for boys without being over-the-top. It’s perfect for those of us eager to please our little guys without giving in to characters and crazy themed clothing.
I’m anxiously awaiting spring and warmer weather and this hoodie is the perfect transition piece! It works great layered over long sleeves for now but I also think it’ll be the ideal swim cover-up come summer too.
The sleeves feature a button-tab detail that makes it easy (and stinkin’ cute!) to roll up the sleeves come warm weather.
I made one small change to the pattern. I used the pocket piece on the fold and cut two of them (it’s lined in the blue fabric). I centered the pocket on the front and sewed the top and sides. The bottom is caught in the hem band. An easy hack and one my little buddy appreciates.
There’s just something about a little boy in a hoodie! The way it frames his cute face is just about all my mommy heart can handle 😉
