Teronia from Sew Haute Blog: Kitty Chromium Hoodie

 Today we have Teronia from Sew Haute Blog joining us with a Chromium Hoodie that could be a great last minute Halloween outfit or just a cute everyday pullover. 

October is the month that always becomes a sort of no man’s land for me. I have all the ideas and intentions, but our fall is so celebration heavy that my kids often end up wearing store bought casual things unless I have a compelling reason to sew something up. Costumes are usually a semi-handmade mix of mama made and store bought. Throw moving into it and my husband and I essentially scrapped the holiday season this year. BUT my mama maker heart couldn’t let spooky season go by without SOMETHING fun for my littles to wear. 

Today, I’m sharing one of my favorite patterns: the Chromium Hoodie from Designs by Call Ajaire. It’s a super quick sew with some very fun details. 

3 hem options: crop length, full length and full length with vented hem band. 
Short and Long sleeve options
MK Fully lined hood with or without animal ears (Bunny, Cat and Bear included) or a cowl. 

For this version I wanted black sweatshirt fleece. Normally I’d order from Raspberry Creek Fabrics, but their black was sold out so I ended getting this from Girl Charlee. Both companies have such cozy lush sweatshirt fabric! The purple cat print came from Joann Fabrics. 

My daughter is wearing the full length option with about 1” of length added. The hood is View A with cat ears added. I pleated the eats my own way and probably would just follow the pattern next time. Also, I didn’t topstitch the seam where the ears are because I missed that in the instructions. Instead I pinched and did a zigzag in front of them. I couldn’t for the life of me find my interfacing, but I think it’d be so much fun to interface the cat or bear ears so they stand up. 

My favorite fun little add-on was making a kitty face in HTV for the front. I was inspired by a hoodie I saw for sale, but made my own face and mine is way cuter. 

Chromium is a staple pattern at my house. I add the hood to basically any pattern I want with no mods. The ears are so fun and I love featuring prints for the hood lining. If you haven’t picked this one up you definitely want to. Hope you were inspired to try it yourself.
