A Hoodie to my Hunny

Hello Sewers, crafters, makers, and dreamers. Happy 2016 for yall. I’m so happy cause I completed one of the few projects for this year (12 according to my sewing resolution) I made a fun and playful hoodie for my boyfriend to wear to work. I made the hoodie out a cozy printed flannel blanket and a piece of orange flannel too. The main reason I choose this print is to bring joy, happiness, and better will for the patients he sees at the hospital. I played with the placement of the yellow birds at center back, at front and on the hood. Luckily, I found zipper and bias type of the same hue as my fabric. I used a Green Pepper pattern this time, It is well instructed and very faithful to the measurement according to their size chart. It was a nice and happy project. My BF loves it and I’m sure the patients too.

Material Notes

Flannel, 26" separating zipper, coordinate bias type


Fall, Winter
Garment Type

    So nice! The print is so fun along with the colors and it certainly does look cozy with the hood. Great work – gifts that are made are the best!
