I Heart my Hatteras Hoodie

Hatteras Hoodie by Hey June Handmade

My little one here is super excited to show you all her brand new Heart Hatteras Hoodie!  (this is also a solicitation for a landscape architect who enjoys being paid in gratitude and beer)Hatteras Hoodie by Hey June Handmade

I got this adorable heart quilted sweatshirting at Joanns forever ago (although I still see it there from time to time!)  The goal was to make a Hatteras and I actually did it!  It’s not often that I buy fabric with a specific project in mind and then actually turn it into that project in a remotely timely manner.  Rejoice with me.

This fabric is so squishy soft and cozy, has the perfect amount of stretch, and is nice and thick for fall and spring weather.  I only wish they had it without the quilting and in all the colors (AHEM, JOANNS.)Hatteras Hoodie by Hey June Handmade

When we started having some chilly mornings last week I figured it was time to finally start outfitting this kid for fall.  I don’t buy stuff from the store because I say I’m going to make something, and then the weather turns and she has nothing to wear and goes to school in her sisters’ way-too-big clothes.  That’s the way it goes folks.  Luckily for her she only had to wait a week for this one.  One day to make the hoodie, 6 to finally go buy and insert the zipper…Hatteras Hoodie by Hey June Handmade

All those quilted hearts gave me the idea to skip the kangaroo pocket and appliqué a heart on this hoodie instead.  I have no business telling anybody how to appliqué, but here’s the nitty gritty: I fused a square of the neon pink knit to some Wonder Under fusible double sided interfacing.  Then I folded the fabric in half and sketched out half a heart on the paper backing and cut it out.  Then I cut the heart in half and used my iron to fuse it to both sides of the zipper on the hoodie.  Then I used a really small zig zag stitch to sew around the heart.  That’s it.  I’m no professional, but it works!Hatteras Hoodie by Hey June Handmade

I thought the hood needed a little pop of pink too, so I used the instructions to alter the hood pattern for lining.  It’s super simple and adds a nice little effect and some extra warmth too.  Hatteras Hoodie by Hey June Handmade

That’s it!  Are your kids’ wardrobes ready for fall?  I still have a little sewing to do…hopefully with some brand new junior’s patterns coming your way soon!

Happy sewing!

    She is darling! I love the pop of pink in the hood! And your non wavy zipper. Pretty sure your landscape is trending somewhere.

    She’s so adorable! I’ve seen that fabric quite a few times too and couldn’t figure out what to make from it, but you’ve nailed it here!

    Your daughter looks adorable in her new hoodie! I hear you on the seemingly impossible task of completing sewing plans. Sometimes I feel like the simpler the plan, the longer it takes to actually get it done!

    love that, the heart is a great idea. 🙂 I love that it matches the pop of color in the hood. I just made four city park tees for my 12 year old. She wanted a bunch of basic tees to go with her sweatshirts and jeans. Now she’s set!
