I’ve had these little fawns sitting in my fabric stash for ages (so long I don’t even remember how long ago that I purchased it). Initially, I had good intentions of making it into a hoodie or sweatshirt, but never could find a ribbing that might work with it.

When I did the sewing stash purge last month, I had a hard time parting with this material, so I rolled it up and put it on a shelf. That is until I realized that our winter was never going to end and maybe I needed something new in my wardrobe.

So, I’m finally putting this material to use by making Jalie 3355 – a hooded sweatshirt with a kangaroo pocket. I gave up the notion that I would ever find a coordinating ribbing (it’s an odd bluish\gray colorway) so I’m using self-fabric for this one and hoping for the best. But what is really awesome is the fact that this project only cost $13.99… not bad for a cute little coverup (let’s hope it’s warm)!
