Hudson Hoodie by Made for Mermaids

Nov 14, 2018

I have been a bad blogger.  And sewist.  And all-around creative person.  But I am so thankful for Made for Mermaids for putting out a new pattern, so it could force me to visit my blog once again.  Maybe this will be the thing that brings me back to the blogging world?  I do miss it so!

Let’s talk about the newest pattern that my mermaid friends just released, shall we?

The Hudson Hoodie is SO CUTE.  Seriously.  I’m a big fan of colorblocking opportunities, being able to use smaller scraps of fabric that you have laying around, and cute clothes for Louis.  This new pattern fits all of that criteria, and more.  I like patterns that teach me new techniques and this one does by the way of the hidden kangaroo pocket.  What a fun way to use those front seam lines!

Louis is a lover of hoodies.  He doesn’t get to wear them too often, as he’s a private school kiddo and his life seems to be mostly spent in polo shirts and khakis.  But I remember having a literal closer full of hoodies throughout most of my life…so I suppose I can’t blame him.  They’re just so cozy!

As he’s always been, Lou is tall and skinny.  So I had to create a blended size for him, grading between 6W and 8H.  Don’t let that freak you out if your child is a mish-mash of sizes!  There is always a visual tutorial in M4M patterns about blending, and the Facebook group is always an excellent resource of help when you get stuck and need a little hand holding.

The Hudson Hoodie is a pretty quick pattern, with an easy cross-over hood and very little hemming.  You’ll probably be making a million of them for the whole family before you know it!
