Super Hero Happy Camper

I am so excited to share with you my newest project available for sale here in my Etsy shop. It is definitely a one of a kind item!! It all started when I was browsing Etsy for fabric (when I had no business doing so) and I saw the Robert Kaufman Heroes PanelImmediately I thought  – that would make a great shirt. I have plans to make the Maxwell Shirt from ShwinDesigns, but the pockets and detailing of that shirt pattern weren’t quite right for this panel. My sister in law mentioned it might make a great hoodie. I loved that idea but I was afraid a hood might cover up the newspaper print I planned to feature on the back. Then Peek-a-boo Pattern Shop came out with their Happy Camper pattern {affiliate link} and I knew immediately it would be perfect.

This is what I get when I ask for a “serious” face – haha

I washed the panel and started making decisions about what I wanted where (with some input from my model). After carefully cutting the panel apart, I started placing the various elements on the pattern pieces to see where I needed to add fabric to make it work. The front features the two super heroes at the base with the BANG and POW! pieces sewn together on an angle.

Each seam is professionally finished and topstitched.

My model chose two more pieces from the panel to be featured on each sleeve. These are appliqued on to the sleeve just above the city-scape. The sleeve hem is gathered by elastic to keep the cold out.

As mentioned, the back features the newspaper article from The Hero’s Herald with a full color photo & “Super Hero Saves the Day!” headline.

In-seam pockets of anti-pill fleece keep your little guy warm.

The jacket was designed so there are no exposed seams inside – Just the warmth and comfort of anti-pill fleece fully lining the body and sleeves.

This would make the perfect One of a Kind gift for your Happy Camper size 6/12 months up to size 12 years. These are made to order so please allow for construction time and shipping.

Model is wearing the Perfect Cargo Pants also available in my shop here. The Pattern, Blank Slate Coastal Cargos, is available here {affiliate link}.

Thanks for reading and see you next week!
