Pattern Parcel #4
I am so excited about today’s post! Before I get into what I made for Mack, here is a little bit more about Perfect Pattern Parcel.
Here at Perfect Pattern Parcel, we believe in supporting independent pattern designers. It’s our opinion that indie patterns are just, well, better than big box patterns, and we’re pretty sure our customers think so too. So, we allow customers to show their support in naming their own price for each Parcel.  We also encourage customers to allocate part of their Parcel price to the charity in order to help classrooms in need. Pattern Parcel donates all profits after expenses from Parcel sales to the charity as well. Together we’ve raised $9,800 towards eliminating educational inequality.
I haven’t sewn my way through the parcel yet, but the two patterns I have made so far are just fabulous!

Pattern Parcel #4 includes:

Maxwell Top by Shwin Designs

Zippy Jacket by Blank Slate Patterns

Schoolboy Vest by Sew Much Ado

Small Fry Jeans by Titchy Threads

Jet Pack Bag by Betz White

And now, the part you’ve been waiting for, what I made…

But wait! The Knight Hoodie wasn’t listed in the parcel, was it? That’s because this epic pattern is the bonus pattern. Choose a price of $26 or greater for Parcel #4 and you will automatically also be sent the Bonus Pattern! The Bonus Pattern for this Parcel is Knight Hoodie by Charming Doodle. 

And believe me, it’s worth it!

Mack has been really into fairy tales lately, especially the ones that involve princesses being rescued from dragons. He loves being a hero and was so thrilled when I made the knight hoodie for him. He wanted nothing more than the battle me with a stick.

If you ask Mack to tell you a story it will likely involve 3 or 5 dragons and a prince/knight who saves a multitude of princesses. Sometimes these princesses build houses with straw and sometimes they sleep on piles of mattresses. He will take whatever bedtime story I tell him and throw in the dragons, it’s so cute!

I love the details in this pattern. Here at the elbow, and also on the shoulders as well as the hood.






This sweater is traditionally sewn with sweatshirt fleece. But I had some lovely black poplin in my stash and a grey zip hoodie to upcycle. So I altered the pattern slightly. 🙂 Because that’s how I roll. I seriously love the way the poplin looks! It’s very crisp.

Now, you may have noticed that the crest on the hood is a little droopy. Because I altered the pattern, I should have interfaced the crest.

Need some more convincing? Let’s talk numbers really quickly. To get the Knight Hoodie you need to spend $26. That makes the first five awesome patterns $5 each, and the Knight Hoodie only $1! It’s really an smashing deal, and part of what you pay is donated, which will feel great.

And the lining in the hood is one of my favorite parts!
