I just love it when pattern designers take a trending design on pinterest and make it reality for us!!
This cozy double hood pattern may be all I make for the rest of the winter. I made up two during testing and they could not be more cozy! Both of my versions had the same options, but I'll probably switch it up and try some of the other options my next go around!
Here is one version made with some heathered mint french terry I have been hoarding from Raspberry Creek Fabrics for quite some time now. I also used some floral french terry scraps from So Sew English Fabrics that were leftover from my Driftwood hoodie test! I also happened to have the perfect zipper in my stash. It had a cute little turquoise zig zag on it that matched my fabrics perfectly. (I bought it on clearance at JoAnns for $.97 last spring!)
My second version is my favorite. I bought this fabulous neon yellow Double Brushed Poly fabric from Love Adore knits knowing it would likely be an awful color on me, but needing it in my life anyway. Thankfully this pattern allowed me to use it as an awesome accent!! I lined the hood on this version to make it a little thicker and cozier. The grey french terry actually has some silver metallic threads throughout it that were difficult to capture with my camera. I picked that up at JoAnn Fabrics in the Famous Maker section!! (I also grabbed it in navy and burgundy, because one can never have enough metallic french terry, amiright!?)
This was my first time adding grommets to the garment, and once I figured out how to actually use that little tool that come with them, I was set! Thanks to Terra for posting this youtube video for me that is! I don't know why I was so intimated by grommets... I would always do buttonholes instead but am now realizing grommets are actually so much quicker and easier!
I do believe everyone needs this pattern in their lives, especially with all the fun options it has! Go grab it now while its on sale!! You can grab your copy here!
