So I wanted to make Keiran something fun for Earth Day and this is what I came up with! I'm kinda in love with how it turned out! It's not often I get to sew for my guys, so when I do, I'm especially excited about it!
The "YO" is especially fitting for KK since his FAVORITE food is yogurt and at least 5 times a day you'll hear him approach someone saying in his slowest, saddest voice-- YO... YO... YO...
Okay, so wanna try this yourself? Here is the tutorial:
So I headed back to Walmart for more of the $6 Dresses and while there, I saw this $5 hoodie for Keiran. I immediately knew that this was going to be the canvas for KK's Earth Day outfit! I mean, how can you beat the price?!?!?!
I went home and designed the logo for the back of the hoodie and here is what I came up with:
Excuse the crudeness of my pattern. I have never claimed to be a master pattern maker! But, hey... it works!!!! :)
1- Print out the Y & O pattern and then cut them out.
2- Iron Wonder Under onto the back of fabric. Trace pattern onto Wonder Under.
3- Cut out pieces.
4- Iron Stabilizer onto the inside back of the hoodie.
5&6- Using chalk, draw a circle on front side of hoodie. Layer 2 strands of embroidery floss together and sew around the circle. Then sew the peace sign inside. DON'T worry about straight or even lines!!!
7&8- Remove paper backing from cut out pattern pieces. Iron to the back of hoodie. Sew around the pieces using a straight stitch and then go over that stitch with a zig zag stitch. Make sure to make the stitches uneven and rough looking.
This was super fun to make and really easy since it was supposed to look rough and unfinished!
Stay tuned for another Earth Day fashion tutorial for girls and possibly a fun gift to drop off at a neighbor's house!!!
