KCWC Day 5- Urban hoodie revisited

I know I promised to have this post up yesterday, but this weekend ended up being seriously crazy. It was good busy, but busy all the same and I never got a chance to take pictures, upload them and sit down at the computer to write up a post.
This hoodie might look familiar to you. I made almost exactly the same one for little man when he was 6 months old and posted about it here.
Aside from the buttons and bigger size, it pretty much looks exactly the same. I know, I’m boring, but what can I say? I loved this sweatshirt, had extra lining fabric, and decided to make it again. This time around, I also used cotton quilting batting in between the lining and main fabric to make it a bit warmer for the winter. That was new to me. I pinned it onto the wrong side of the lining and then just sewed the rest as I normally would have. I really love how it turned out and already have a plan for my next project with this pattern. I want to adapt it into a jacket (no hood), make the sleeves a bit bigger (they always end up tight with this pattern), line with batting again.

This concludes my KCWC sewing. I petered out after Friday. The weekend was too nutty to continue. I had a lot of fun participating in this for the first time, and found some new super talented and creative bloggers to follow.
