Imagine a Hoodie

My boyfriend has this T-Shirt that has the word imagine on it with a little heart over the “i.” It’s one of those things that’s so simple, but somehow resonates with me, so I wanted to incorporate the idea into something of my own.

Everyone associates the word “imagine” with the John Lennon song, right? I hope so, because it’s one of my favorite songs ever.

The pattern was Burda 8042, and what a wonderful pattern! This is the kind of hoodie you never want to take off. The only modification I made was to lengthen the sleeves by 3 inches (I have the wingspan of a chimpanzee). It’s made with a spandex-jersey blend I got on clearance at Spotlight in New Zealand when I was visiting my parents.

The applique was the most time consuming part and I backed it with white interfacing which I should have made slightly smaller than the applique itself because now it peeks out on the edges. I can live with that, though.
