Description

Fleece collared, zip up jacket worn for book parade – Ben 10! Stripes and patch also made – thank god for double sized fusable interfacing (i don’t know the actual name of the stuff).

I used Get Creative Sewing Boys’ Clothes – which is a book that includes 4 patterns that can be slightly changed to make a number of garments.

Material Notes

Fleece, zip, lycra/jersey for patch.

Difficulty

Intermediate

    My son is turning 5 but I think a size 6 would be fine :)

    How do I get a hold of a pattern for this project my son’s birthday is coming up at the end of February…he would just freak out if I could make this for him.

      Its actually an Australian Fabric Store’s pattern book (does that make sense?) Best I could do is maybe draw it up and post it to you – I have no idea how to put one up online :O(. How old is your son and what size would he need? I think this is a size 6. My son is 6 in Feb – we were in USA earlier this year and sizes are very much comparable to there. Let me know and then we can send other details by email.

    I am glad it’s not just me who does that kind of mistake on here! Thanks for the advice – I will try it after Christmas – I am still making presents…eek.

    Thanks so much – I made this out of fleece, but if you wanted the real mccoy you could use leather-like material, but you would have to make a lining. I guess this version is more wearable.

      Fleece seems more practical for a little kid too. My son wouldn’t realise that it should be leather-like anyway! I have to confess I haven’t sewn fleece before – is it easy?

    My son loves this! I may have to get to work now on one for him :)

      So, sorry, but I accidently marked your post above as “inappropriate” and now I don’t know how to fix it. I was going to reply:
      It’s quite easy, just use bigger stitches or a zig-zag – you could even do most of it with a serger/overlocker
