My friend, G, is kind enough to accompany me on fabric shopping trips from time to time. This time, it paid off for her. We were wandering around JoAnn’s when I heard, from across the store, “Look at the cute hedgehogs!” G and I bolted across the store to find these adorable little fleece hedgies. I quickly agreed to make my friend a hedgie fleece pullover.
The pattern is sort of an old Kwik Sew that I hacked to bits over the year. It started out as just a plain sweatshirt pattern. I added a zipper, a collar, pockets, side shaping, etc. Fortunately, G is close enough to my size that only minor sizing adjustments were needed.
A pink zipper would have been awesome, but time did not permit another trip to JoAnn’s. G is an elementary school librarian and it was hedgehog week. I whipped this jacket together in a few hours.
Every teacher needs pockets. Here is a shot of the pockets:
