Farbenmix Beala hoodie

Supersnuggly version!

As a recent convert to sewing knit fabrics,
I have to say that part of the joy and satisfaction is the speed of putting most garments together.
The embroidering of the butterflies
(and sewing them on to the velour as I was too chicken to embroider directly)
took much longer than cutting out and sewing up this hoodie.

Fabric: velour from Crafty Mamas shop
Embroidery: from Embroidery Library

It is a bit on the big size but that's OK.
There will be lots of layering happening if winter ever gets here.

LOVE it!! It looks fabulous! The butterflies are such a great touch. I have yet to try sewing with knits and I think you may have inspired me to try. X

Tackling knit fabrics is next on this to do list. I have fingers crossed it's as easy peasy as the (long dreaded but not anymore) zip. Gulp. You've done a fab job lady...
