August Sew Along Pattern

Can you believe tomorrow is the first day of August?  Where did the summer go?  My oldest will officially be a first grader in just 15 days.  With that in mind, and the impending chill due any week now, I've chose a Autumnish (don't you just love when I make up my own words) pattern for August.

The August "Sewing For Boys" pattern will be The Luka Hoodie.  I know some of you have warmer weather for several months ahead so you can either, use light weight fabrics such as cotton or even nylon and make it more of a windbreaker or size the jacket keeping in mind that it may be a few months before your little guy will wear it.

I can't wait to give this one a go!

  1. Hey Stacey - This is probably the most challenging pattern in the whole book!

    I have a tutorial inthe works with step-by-step-by-step photos....and corrections. I'll post to the flickr group, here, and facebook when I have it posted on sewing-for-boys.com

  2. I've just finished mine, and I am in love with it! I've posted on my blog, http://livingwithoutitall.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/thar-she-sews.html and also put it in the Flickr Pool... Is that right? I've never done a sew-along before!

    It's a little big at the moment as my son is only 10 months!

  3. I finished mine today and the little guy even got to wear it already (that's August in Seattle for you). I think we both love it already! Blogged here: http://annanicsblog.blogspot.com/2012/08/so-you-think-you-can-sew.html

  4. I really love this hoodie! But as my boys don't need jackets at the moment and other things had to be sewn I think I'll have to give up the thought of making one this month.

  5. I got mine done in the nick of time. Added pics to the Flickr group and blogged at http://willyount.blogspot.com/2012/08/luka-hoodie-disaster-averted-mostly.html.


Question, comment? Got something to say? I want to hear from you!
