But I found it ended up being so much work, and I realized in the end I really needed to share the actual pattern pieces. Explaining how I designed it in a way that you could mimic just didn't seem to be working.
So I'm selling my first pattern, for the Hipster Hoodie.
While I was putting so much into it, I added smaller sizes, for 2T and 12-18 months while I was at it.
I figured most people wouldn't put a baby smaller than 12 months in a pull over hood shirt out of the inconvenience, so I didn't make sizes smaller than 12 months.
I also included some variations with ideas of how you could adapt the basic pattern using different fabric prints, textures, and an additional three-quarter sleeve option. You can also easily switch the angle of the diagonal, making the front pocket right or left handed. I hope I included enough variety, info, and ideas to make the pattern worth the financial investment!
There were some requests for an adult version of the design. I haven't had a chance to work on that, but hope to offer an adult pattern sometime for those that would be interested.

And to kick off this new venture of selling my design, I thought I'd do a giveaway.
Leave a comment telling me your favorite television show as a kid.
For me, as a little kid the Barbie cartoon with Jem, Carebears close second.
A little older in the 90s and I was hooked to animated X-Men. Setting my alarm Saturday mornings to watch. It was awesome--cartoon, superheroes, action, and kid friendly soap opera romances. Oh Gambit and Rouge, if only she could touch you and not kill you.
