The Geneva Cardigan

Today my little rockstar is taking over this space in his brand new Geneva Cardigan!

I told him to do something cool and this automatically happened!  I guess he is way cooler than me cause I don’t get this dab thing (that’s what its called, right?), I really need to step up my game!!

He totally LOVES his Geneva!  This is the latest pattern from Coffee + Thread.  What makes this a winner for everybody is that its unisex, has 4 collar options, 2 sleeve options and comes in sizes from 12 months to 14 years.  It’s also quite fast to sew.

I made him a size 8 and the fit is perfect for him.  This was my first time using snaps and I just might be hooked, I don’t mind doing button holes but it’s sewing on the buttons I don’t like so much.  There was also another first for me with this one and that was…

…up-cycling!

I used an old hoody from one of my oldest ones to make this.  Finally my husband thought I was doing something smart with this sewing hobby of mine.  He doesn’t get that I hate mending worn out clothes and stuff like that, so this really made him excited.

The pattern is still on sale and if you join the Coffee + Thread Facebook group you’ll find a code for additional 15% off.  I have more of these to show you so I’ll be back on Monday with some more in a totally different style.

Love

I'm a mom to four fantastic kids, three boys and a girl. To teenagers and to toddlers so never a dull moment in our household :) We are from Iceland but have been living in Norway since 2001. I have a newfound passion for sewing. My hubby travels a lot for work and I needed something to do at night when the little ones are a sleep because suddenly my teenage boys would rather hang with their friends or play on their pc's than be with me - why is beyond my imagination :) Thanks to Pinterest I found some amazing sewing bloggers, whom I've been stalking, and realized that I could dig out my sewing machine and start sewing. Now it's all I think about. I've been hoarding pdf patterns and learning from all the amazing tutorials that are out there. I've decided to try out this blogging thing as well to document my sewing journey. We'll see how it goes! Thanks for stopping by, I would love it if you would leave me a comment! XOXO Dagbjört
