Back to School: Knights of the Fingerpainting Table Raglan Hoodies

Backtoschooljustjoshin

Next up in the Back-to-school wardrobe are these lightweight hoodies, made with adorable knights fabric I had printed from Spoonflower.com. I used the Scientific Seamstress All the Rage Raglan pattern, (affiliate link) which I have had forever but haven’t made for a couple years. It is a super-easy pattern to make and turns out so cute. I have been sewing with knit fabric more lately and finding cute boy-themed knits has become quite a challenge. I have found a couple online sites that offer small-run custom printing, I am looking forward to creating more cute, comfy shirts for these two from those. This print was ordered from Spoonflower, it isn’t my design, but the nice thing about Spoonflower is you can have a design printed on as little as a quarter yard of fabric. I have designed and ordered my own fabrics for projects, though this time I bought two different designs from other people. This knight fabric was too cute to pass up, especially when I could get two shirts from one yard when paired with a solid jersey knit. 

The raglan pattern has lots of options for customization, short and long sleeves, faux layered sleeves, hood or collar. I think the hooded look in grey goes with the knight look pretty well, and of course I do love hoods on the boys. I can see making a bunch of these without the hoods as PJ tops for winter.

These will be great for layering as the weather changes, and the hood is so cute. They are great out of lightweight jersey knit, but I have also used this pattern for fleece which made great sweatshirts.
