The Charlie Bear & Friends Hood pattern is both fun and functional, providing you with an alternative to boring hats when it comes to keeping warm in cold weather! There is the choice of either a hood on its own or a hood with attached scarf and mittens/pockets.
The pattern and instructions come with 6 animals to choose from (wolf, bear, unicorn, dinosaur, reindeer and fox), but with a little imagination and careful fabric selection you can make many more. The Charlie Bear & Friends Hood goes from Age 1-2 right up to Large/XL Adult so you can sew for everyone!
An overlocker/serger will create the neatest finish but importantly a sewing machine is all you need for all options.
Recommended Fabric: Outer Fabric: Medium weight fabric is required for the outside. A wide variety of fabrics can be used but faux fur
has the most impact. Fleece, minky, tweed and wool blends also work well. Some colour suggestions are given to make realistic hoods but obviously any colours can be used.
Lining Fabrics: Light/medium weight, soft fabrics are best. Fleece, minky, quilting cotton and brushed cotton all
