Lil Blue Boo / Dharma Trading Design Challenge

I finally got to making this hoodie for Natalie the other day.  I had snatched up Lil Blue Boo‘s hoodie pattern as soon as Ashley released it and was so excited about making one, or two!  Then the Christmas rush came around and well, you know the rest.

I had found two t-shirts at Old Navy for 95 cents each!  Can’t beat that price and their softness. 

For a little fun and girlyness I added some silver sparkly butterflies.  I had this Martha Stewart punch hanging around from this project, so butterflies it was.  I used freezer paper and punched out the butterflies, ironed on the paper, and painted away.  A little sparkle on the sleeve, the upper chest and pocket, and don’t forget the hood!

This pattern fits my daughter really well, and as an added bonus, she loves it!  My little model was so sick when I took these pictures, poor thing. {Can we stop taking pictures now mama?  I’m tired and have a runny nose.}
