My kid loves all things sports, and he loves wearing logo gear. The problem we tend to have is that they are either ugly, like really ugly, or they are too big or too small. He is in that not quite adult size but larger than youth size stage. So it’s a good thing his mom sews, and that patterns can be any size he needs.

So when he wanted a “spida” sweatshirt since that is his current favorite player, I set out to making him one that we could both like. I used the Ringo Raglan teen sizes to make the hoodie, since I also added the hood and pocket add on.

Then I added eyelets and a string (a narrow cut strip of the fabric) through the casing of the hood, which isn’t in the instructions but easy to add and the kid said it should have a drawstring. For the logo I often use iron on transfer but honestly they just don’t hold up as much as I would like them too. It always seems after a few washes they start peeling off. I decided this time to use wonder under (a double sided fusible tape) And I traced and cut the logo out of felt. After ironing it on to the front I stitched around the edges to keep it even more secure.

The kid is happy that he has a shirt that fits and is a style he likes.
