Here’s the Finley Hoody sewing pattern which is FREE for everyone to download. It’s a cozy raglan hoody that comes in sizes from preemie to 12 years. It’s a fabulously fun unisex project that we are sure your little ones will love.
For what fabric to use, the designer, Peanut Patterns, suggests knit fabric that is a light to medium weight cotton. It can be interlock, jersey, french terry, fleece, or double knit. If you’d like your body pieces to be contrasting the designer suggests making two hoody’s (with different print fabric for each) and swapping the pieces between the two.
How much fabric do you need?
You will need 60″ wide fabric for each pattern size as follows:-
Preemie to 3 months = 1/2 a yard.
6 to 12 months = 5/8 of a yard.
18 months to 3 years = 7/8 of a yard.
4 to 6 years = 1 yard.
7 to 12 years = 1 1/4 yards.
What do you get?
When you download the free pattern it will include instructions/tutorial with real step-by-step photos and detailed steps including what you will need. Pattern sizes are all Adobe Acrobat Layer compatible and can be printed with all standard print paper sizes (A4, A3, US Letter, and Legal). Once you receive the file, you will print it from your home printer. It will print on multiple sheets that will need to be taped together. We try to minimize the headache by including lots of colors/markers when piecing together. No Serger is required, all you need is a sewing machine that can do a zig-zag and a straight stitch. There are no commercial limitations, you can sew and sell as many finished goods as you like.
