I decided that I needed to use my Blended Thread panel (and matching stripe fabric) before it got to warm (ha! that’s not happening anytime soon) to get any use out of it. I decided that I would try Pattern Niche (formerly New Horizons) Summit Peak Hoodie – I thought that it would showcase the panel, but show off the stripes at the same time.
I thought that I would have plenty of time to finish this in one day, but between fussy cutting the fabric (as much as I love stripes, they do take a lot more work to line everything up) and figuring out the pocket (there has to be an easier way to do this), this is all I have completed….. it’s so close! I still have to figure out a lining for the hood (or see if I can skip it as this fabric is bulky) and have the waistband to put on, but if all goes as planned, I should have a new hoodie by lunch!
