Ok here's the deal, I'm a total newbie at sewing, with the tiny exception of making a little pillow when I was in middle school. It didn't turnout well either. So, I'm probably absolutely crazy to attempt this, but I want to try!

I am going to attempt to make a reversible hoodie. Now I'm sure I can find a pattern for a hoodie somewhere, but I haven't found a pattern for a reversible one. If anyone could point me in the right direction to find one, that would be great.

Here is what I'm trying to do, snagged the template from DeviantArt by the way, all I did was color these:

It's based on a Transformer double agent named Punch/Counterpunch. There'll be other little details on there but I can paint them on with stencils and fabric paint, if all goes well.

The other thing I need to figure out is what type of material to use. I was thinking polar fleece, or something similar, but I don't want it to be too bulky, but not too thin either. I'd be a rather bad judge of whats warm in this case. The jacket is a gift for my boy in Canada, and I'm from Florida. Drastically different climates! Any tips from you guys would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance guys :3

No need for a different pattern for a reversible hoodie: just cut out two sets of the pieces (except the hood.) If you use polar fleece, you can get away with just one set of sleeves, because it's the same on both sides. If you use sweatshirt fleece (smooth on one side, fuzzy on the other), you'll have to double up on the sleeves, too.

Construct each body seperately, then stick the sleeves & hood into their proper places between the two body layers. Turn it inside out and finish the bottom hem. Tada!
