Ringer Tee by Brindille & Twig

I was probably really stupid to make a white sweatshirt for my son. But I had just enough left of this cute panda french terry to make the ringer tee in 96. It’s huge on my son but will probably be a good fit for autumn.

The pattern was a quick and easy sew. I made this one more like a sweatshirt but it’s supposed to be a T-shirt pattern.

Hooded Raglan Sweatshirt by Brindille & Twig

The Hooded Raglan Sweatshirt is one of my favourite patterns all time. I’m so happy it’s free! It runs from sizes newborn to six years, so I’ll be able to make it for long.

This specific one is the smallest one I’ve made so far – European size 68. It’s so tiny and cute! I made it for a friend’s daughter as a welcome to the world gift along with the leggings on this picture.

I used remnants of a sponsored french terry from Elvelyckan Design as both lining in the hood and pocket and cuffs (and for the leggings). It’s so soft and stretch it worked out great as ribbing.

I’ve made four hooded raglan sweatshirts now. For two of them I’ve added a zipper, which I can highly recommend if you want a great zip jacket. Look at the pictures below. The one to the left is made from a super soft knit wool fabric and is fully lined and the one to the right only has a lined hoodie. Both are made from scraps.

Sweatshirt by Small Dreamfactory

A site with free sewing patterns I found early on in my “sewing career” was Small Dreamfactory. There you can find lots of great free patterns for smaller children, and if you like them they are available for sale in larger sizes. I think most patterns are free in sizes 50-92.

I come back to the site quite often and a couple of weeks ago I decided to try a new pattern from Small Dreamfactory – the sweatshirt. I wasn’t disappointed.
