Ottobre Kids Magazine Sheepish Hooded Jumper

Continuing with the theme of sewing for others, I am happy to share one of my favourite kids makes from last year.

My second little person was a sheep in the Christmas play. I felt the costume he was given to wear by the school was sub-par and inconsistent with his tremendous talent!!! So I took it upon myself to make him a sheep costume. After my zeal and indignation had fizzled out – I came to the conclusion that I wanted to make something that would also get a lot of wear even after the play.

With 48 hours to spare I got this jersey fabric from Fabworks Mill Shop (not available online) which has the most amazing soft texture! It was incredibly pricey for me at 12£/meter (I bought 3/4 of a meter) but I quickly rationalised as follows:

  1. He is number 2, therefore, numbers 3, 4 and 5 will wear this as well and if you calculate the cost then in makes it worth while.
  2. I was with hubs who is my biggest enabler. ” Just buy it and love and let’s go” is always his response (I can’t complain).

I washed it at 30 degrees and tumble dried without noticeable loss of texture or length.

I lined the hoodie with a blue jersey fabric as blue is said little person’s favourite colour too. It sewed up in under 2 hours and he was able to wear it for his production. He loves it and wears it almost everyday. The only issue was that little persons 3, 4 and 5 also wanted their own sheep hoodies too! Baaaa!
