I really like the modifications you made.  The broken heart adds a nice touch.  BTW, Kudos for knitting an entire garment in seed stitch.  So tedious.

Thanks.  And yeah, totally tedious.  I'm an English-style knitter and it takes forever to do seed stitch that way, so I actually made the effort to work Continental on some of it.  (Unfortunately my Continental gauge is really loose, and when you look closely at the hoodie you can tell the difference Sad )

:charlie brown face: Aaaarrrgh!

I wash the hoodie and the iron-on appliqus came off.  :grump grump grump:  Fine, I give up! I'll embroider the freaking things on.

Does anyone know of a washable fabric marker that will write well on yarn?

Love the crocheted heart.  I hadn't noticed the safety pins holding the two heart halves together before, and that is just a fantastic detail.

Thanks Smiley  The safety pins are basically my favourite part - I just wish I'd been able to find some of those ridiculously, comically HUGE ones.

It looks really good.
The crochet hearts make the look!

Will you still add the kangaroo pouch?
