I am so honored to be on Elisa's pattern tour for the Knight Hoodie! I e-mailed her when I saw tester photos being posted on FB and FELL.IN.LOVE!
Christian also saw it and immediately asked me if I would make it - I was sooooooo excited when Elisa asked if I would be interested in making it and joining the tour!
The accents of "armor" are what really make this hoodie stand out! The hood trim, visor, shoulder and elbow patches are impressive and make this garment a one of a kind!
I knew I wanted to add a design with my embroidery machine on the back and I found some fun dragons but this fleur-de-lis from Urban Threads called my name! Christian loves it since it's like Mickey Mouse in the Three Mousketeers!
I think what I love most about Christian's hoodie is the leather accents! I used scrap pleather from a purse and a pair of old boots!
There are a few flaws in my sewing with one side being a little higher than the other, but it works for the top to overlap and snap in place!
The smaller sizes can be zipped all the way up with a 20" zipper but Christian's size 5 is a little too long for the zipper so a snap is needed to secure the top of the hood!
The only thing I don't like is that my little boy looks so big in his new Knight Hoodie. It seems like as soon as he started preschool he jumped into a whole new level of maturity and development! He is such a beautiful and special boy. My knight in shining armor!
