Care Bear Hoodies

I've had this project waiting on the side for a while...I thought I had better get stuck into it as the weather is cooling down!

I was inspired by this amazing hoodie...check out the tutorial HERE!

I used the same pattern the Yorik by Farbenfix de as I loved the way the hood sat - and it was a very easy pattern - even with the german instructions!

The girls picked which bear they wanted ages ago (Cheer Bear for Amelie and Funshine for Clementine) and I had the fabric all ready to go...then at the last minute...luckily JUST before I cut the pattern out they switched...Amelie's new favourite colour is Yellow and Clementine has switched to Pink!

First up I made the patches for the tummies which was fun doing some hand embroidery with felt on fleece:



For the rest I pretty much stuck to the instructions - with the addition of the cute bear ears!

I love how they turned out...the sewing is not 100%...I am so used to working with cotton that knits always stretch a little with me!

But on the plus side the girls love them and it's something bright and fun for the cold days ahead!



Getting their care bear stares on!







After the photo sessions the girls decided to put on a little Care Bear play...it's great to share something from my childhood with the girls!

  1. So very very very DELIGHTFUL! I've always been a bit of a care bear fan - but was never fortunate enough to have my own. Funnily my eldest son loves them too... but at six years old would not be caught wearing a care bear hoodie!!!

  4. Totally digging these! Have you considered adding them to the Sew Geeky flikr pool? Mb you have already, but I didn't notice them there when I added my Ms.Pacman dress. My daughter still likes to watch the Care Bear Movie on Netflix (now I'm not going to get the song out of my head... "The Forest of Feeling, Care-a-lot, and Earth are not far apart..." hahaha).
