I seriously love the Knight Hoodie! When it very first came out, I said “Shut up and take my money!” I’ve sewn it several times (this is still one of my favorites and this one I modified into a spacesuit hoodie) and each time it turns out just a little bit better than the last.

I love adding graphics to the backs using freezer paper stencils – Miles (black and red) has the White Tree of Gondor and John (blue and orange) has a sunrise/sunset.

This time I used leather scraps (leftover from this jacket and this vest) for the armor pieces. I used jean buttons on John’s and rivets on Miles’ instead of buttons.

I also found these adorable shield and helmet pendants at Hobby Lobby that I used as zipper pulls. Naturally I didn’t get a good picture of them, though – giving two three year olds foam swords and telling them they are knights meant they didn’t want to hold still. Go figure!

One thing I’ve been doing lately with great results is to line the hood with quilting weight cotton.

I love how it covers the hood and neck seams for a nice finish. It’s also a great way to shorten too-long zippers. I buy mine on clearance and at thrift stores if I can, so they are rarely the right size :)

I had to include this picture just for Miles’ face!

I hope I’ve helped convince you to pick up the Pattern Parcel while you still can. There are only a few days left and you might regret not grabbing these awesome patterns at such a discount – not to mention to cool charity that’s part of the deal!

About Pattern Parcel:

Here at Perfect Pattern Parcel, we believe in supporting independent pattern designers. It’s our opinion that indie patterns are just, well, better than big box patterns, and we’re pretty sure our customers think so too. So, we allow customers to show their support in naming their own price for each Parcel. We also encourage customers to allocate part of their Parcel price to the charity Donorschoose.org in order to help classrooms in need. Pattern Parcel donates all profits after expenses from Parcel sales to the charity as well. Together we’ve raised $9,800 towards eliminating educational inequality.
