happy homemade sew-along: June 16-20, 2014

I’ve been saying I was going to do it forever and finally it’s here–a Happy Homemade vol. 2 sew-along! I’m super excited to partner with Cherie from You & Mie to bring you this sew-along. Happy Homemade vol.2 has long been my favorite pattern book. Recently it’s been translated into English and renamed Sew Chic Kids. If you’ve ever wanted to sew with Japanese patterns, but were too nervous to start this is the sew-along for you. You can jump in the deep end with the Japanese version of the book (and we’ll help you the whole way) or you can just get your toes wet using the English version. Either way, it’s going to be great!

Cherie and I picked the pull-over parka pattern for the sew-along and it’s one of my favorite favorites. We will go through the pattern step by step, sewing along with you the whole time. This is a super fantastic hoodie pattern. It’s good for girls or boys, summer or winter, woven or knit, so many options! And we’ll give you even more options in the weeks leading up to the sew-along: changes you can make to the pattern, things to add, cool fabrics to use.

I’ve made this pattern a bunch of times, and I’m excited to make it again! Won’t you join us? The sew-along goes from June 16-20. In the weeks leading up to the actual sew along Cherie and I will post about where you can get the book, what fabrics work best, and changes you might want to make. Then you will be good and ready to sew-along with us–from tracing the pattern all the way to the last stitch.

    I ‘d like to sew a hoodie and some shorts for my little boy, who still loves homemade clothes. :)

  13. ~Heather says:

    I just had to return my copy to the library (so, not really ‘my’ copy). While I’d love to make the dresses, I don’t think my lads would wear them. But I’d love to make a cute button-up shirt.

    My 5 year old little boy would love a hoodie and I would make one for my 1 year old little girl as well.
