I made this sweater for my little brother. I've got a habit of making things for people, like all the time. After I made it, I got him to try it on, but the neck hole was way too small...so then I re-did it, and it fits him perfect.

Here it is on the floor:

And on my brother:

Coolness.
My brother would love one of those. Of course I'm the kind of sister who tells him that's what stores are for and then goes to finish sewing a new outfit... lol.
Anyway. If you made your own pattern I, too, would LOVE a tut. please?

Thanks for such nice compliments, everyone Cheesy

As for making my own pattern, I just copied one of his sweaters he already had, traced the pieces (well just put his sweater over the fabric, and cut around the main part to get the right shape, and made it bigger for the seam allowance)...and pretty much the same for the rest of it, i just made it out of the camouflage fleece. As for posting a tut, I've never been asked for one before (let alone make one)...I could probably come up with one sometime, but not just yet as my life's gotten quite busy right now.

They didn't agree on much. In fact they rarely agreed on anything. They fought all the time and they challenged each other everyday. But in spite of their differences they had one important thing in common. They were crazy about each other.

Great job!  I wouldn't mind one of those for myself.  So cute and comfy-looking, too!
