Panda Hoodie Tutorial

SONY DSC

Well, if you haven’t noticed already, I’m pretty obsessed with pandas. It occurred to me the other day that of all the clothes that I’d made, I still don’t own a panda hoodie. And once this realization was made, the conclusion to make one immediately followed.

This hoodie is made of fleece and is very simple to sew. It’s also pretty light, depending on what type of fleece you choose, but also warm. I made it with one and a half yards of white fleece and half a yard of black fleece.

So without further ado, here is a tutorial on how to make a panda hoodie! Hope you enjoy. If you make it for Halloween, please send me a picture!

Halloween’s coming up! It’s like the holiday that’s made for crafters and people who sew. Do you know what you’re going to dress up as? Instead of spending too much money on a single costume you might never wear again, why not put together something yourself and show off your creativity? We’ve put together a list of five sewing tutorials on YouTube. Hope they inspire you to make your own!
