What a perfect combination to release in the new issue of One Thimble!  We are such hoodie fans at my house that when I got a preview of Issue 11, I knew exactly what I wanted to sew up and try out.

The Marty Hoodie from Ainslee Fox is great!  It can be either tunic or dress length and has 2 pocket choices.

I chose the patch pockets but there is a kangaroo pocket as well that you can check out on Rachel’s review on Pattern Revolution.

These cute little trolls were in a scrap pack I picked up from Dark Matter Fabrics and there was just enough to highlight them with a coordinating french terry.

Since we are just moving into summer here I decided to make it short sleeve.  This isn’t an option on the pattern but is a very easy modification that you can make on your own.

StitchART released an adorable set of creatures plus a few extras like these glasses that I picked.  I can’t wait to try the others on something for Reid, they are right up his wild-side alley!

These templates can be added to ANY hoodie, made or store bought.  They only require a few simple things to get started.  Most importantly you will want to be sure you have a free motion or darning foot for your machine, it should look something like this-

This lets the fabric move freely and you can control where the stitches go, rather than being fed through normally.
