A Project for Hubby

This hunting season hubby wanted a new digital camo hunting pullover.  After lots of looking, he found the fabric he wanted, Powershield MARPAT DWR gridded fleece.  I bought a pattern from…

Hmm…do you sense something wrong here?  It looks like there’s been a ghostwriter on my blog.  Since E-boy can’t read, E. is not home and A. doesn’t spell so well, the process of elimination points to Hubby.  Yes, the hunting posts are his idea.  I gave him my blessing to post them as long as he posted as himself, but I think he’s a little shy.  Maybe in the future he’ll find his “voice” and join in the bloggy fun.

So Hubby left me to finish his post, and he took E-boy with him so there’s quiet in the house.  Can I tell you how rare it is for me to be in my house all by myself?   Yeah, I can’t remember the last time.  On to the pullover (this is the part that stumped Hubby when he was trying to write it, he said, “I don’t know if it’s flat-felled or double-faced or whatever.”)  I used this green pepper pattern to start with.  Obviously, I eliminated the front zip, and I added length to both the body and the sleeve.  The fleece fabric was actually super-easy to sew with, and it came out looking awesome.  You can see it close-up here.  The outer is a woven nylon and the inside is the gridded fleece.  And if you notice the USMC emblem up-side-down on the shoulder, let me assure you that they really do go both ways on the fabric, even though the only ones that are noticable on the finished pullover are the wrong way.

    That’s great! I’ll have to look for that pattern and think about it and the fabric for my hubby (former USMC – his birthday is actually Nov. 10, but we celebrate the USMC birthday that day instead.). Very nice!
