Urban Unisex Hoodie

The other week I decided it was time to transition into sewing some clothes more suited to cold weather.  I had seen posts about the Urban Unisex Hoodie by Heidi and Finn a couple times and loved the look of it.  I finally decided to buy it, and man I am SO glad I did!  It is such a cute hoodie, and the pattern and directions are so easy to understand.  It goes from 6 months up to 5t, so you can get a lot of use out of the pattern, and then with all the different fabric combos out there, the possibilities are endless.  It took away my fear of sewing hoodies. I've wanted to sew them for awhile but never did because I was sure it would be too hard.  The pattern comes with detailed instructions and pictures of each step. It is definitely worth buying.

I altered the pattern a little bit to make it reversible, making it even more versatile than it already was.  To check out how to make it reversible, see HERE. I've already made my girl two hoodies so far, plus two for my niece and nephew.  For $6 (cost of pattern, all the fabric I've used has been from my stash) I have made 4 hoodies, all of which are reversible, so the equivalent of 8 hoodies.  Figuring the average cost of a toddler hoodie is about $20, that's a savings of $154. Pretty awesome.

To sum it all up, the Urban Unisex Hoodie by Heidi and Finn is fabulous and you should buy it.
