- Lavender Gray Eco-Fleece - Like the eco-fleece in our Sew Confident Box, this fabric is a blend of hemp, cotton and bamboo. All three will keep you warm and wrapped in goodness when you turn it into a hoodie. And the color! A cool, dusky lavender, it reminds me of the summer sky at dusk when the light is still lingering after sunset. It's a wonderful transitional color that will take your from September to next spring with ease. A lovely option!
- Canyon Pink Doodle Pink Bamboo French Terry - We're quite big fans of the doodle print thing that's been happening lately, and this fabric is no exception. The lightest option of the three, this french terry is adorned with brown and light pink squiggles that look like you hand-painted your sweatshirt with a marker and highlighter. But we've saved you all the time that would take and let you get to the fun part of wearing your hoodie right off the sewing machine!
- Cognac Doppio Brushed Double Knit - Quite thick and beefy, this double knit has a smooth stockinette face on both sides of the fabric, making the insides of your hoodie just as cozy as the outside. The thickness of the fabric makes it perfect for the boxy shape of the pattern and a deceptive amount of stretch keeps the hoodie comfy and wearable. The intense, orangey-brown color is rich and indulgent, and the rayon give the fabric deliciously silky hand. A gorgeous fabric!
