Hunger Games with Nap Time Creations

Today we have Emily from Nap Time Creations sharing her Gale-inspired Hunger Games outfit. I was already excited for the new movie coming out this month and these looks are making it so I can hardly wait :)

Hi Crafting Con followers… what a series!! I’m thrilled to be part of it… When I signed up forever ago I was so excited to be thinking about what I would make. I thought about it all summer….. Here’s what I came up with for my look. I’ve ALWAYS been a Gale fan… even when I read the books and didn’t have an image in my head… then when the first movie came out… um yes please… Liam Hemsworth is totally yummy!! {oh and I love my husband to pieces!!!} SO this is a Gale inspired look.

I was inspired by this photo…. rugged pants… shirt and vest… I also created three pieces that work together well or as separates.

All the pieced in this look can be worn separately and are totally not costumey… and I think my son is just as dreamy as Liam Hemsworth…

The sweater is knit from wool and I edited the original pattern to remove the hood and just create a collar. It works perfectly with the collared shirt underneath.

You can find this pattern on Ravelry… it’s free! I’ve used it a few times and love it. You can see my sweaters with hood in this post.

Here’s a peak at the look from the back.. This outfit will be warm all winter and could be worn without the sweater for warmer days.

I love all the details on these pants! The pockets are perfect for all the things boys like to collect and bring home. The shirt and pants patterns are from Peek a Book patterns. {affiliate link} These are the classic Chinos and Classic Oxford. I love how easy and great Amy’s patterns are… they fit my boys really well too and I don’t have to alter them.

This outfit is perfect for the rough and tumble boy… or one trying to sneak out of District 12 {ha!}

Today over on my blog I’ll be sharing a tutorial and free pattern for these cargo pants pockets. They can be added to any pants pattern to create fun cargo pants.

I always love it when the boys get some sewing love! This outfit is so fun and perfect for an active boy.
