KCWC - Day 2

For day 2 of the Kids Clothes Week Challenge at Elsie Marley, I tackled the hoodie that was on my to-do list for Travis.   
Travis picked out these buttons himself! 

 The inside is lined with a very soft aqua/white stripe I got on Ebay.  I find it a bit tricky to find good knit fabric locally.  The brown interlock is from my local JoAnn Fabrics.  The pattern I got here.  It is the Unisex Hoodie from Heidi and Finn.

I also finished this pair of underwear for Travis using yesterday's scraps!  I can't wait to make more of these.  This is another pattern found on Etsy, Undies Pattern from ThatDarnCat.

Time to rest!  HA, I mean, go clean up the mess.  .. then off to my Middle Schooler's Open House!


  1. Super cute; love the colors of the buttons. Heading off to check out that undie pattern!

  2. Really cute, just joined the challenge group and as a mum of 2 boys and an extended family which runs to boys, boys and more boys. I am always looking for other people making nice things for boys for inspiration.

  3. Love it! And what a cute little guy you have there!

  4. Ok, so I finished mine, and it is way too small for my little guy. What did you think about the sizing? I'm trying to determine if the pattern runs small or if I'm an idiot and printed it incorrectly. :)

  5. Oh no! I did think it was a little snug fitting. I thought it was me, too. Usually Travis takes a 2T, next time I would make a 3. I checked the item description for the pattern and it says it's more "fitted". I guess with the 2 layers it makes it even more so.

    Hopefully you can find a 'little-er' guy to give it to as a gift!

    It's so upsetting when things don't fit. Just size up and try again. :)

  6. gosh I bet your inbox is starting to get spammed from all my comments! ahaha.

    Thanks for the additional links! You need to do a post for me of all the places you buy your non-mainstream patterns from! I'm loving finding them! I never sew with patterns but these look great!
