Pattern Sizing:

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
close, but I added some machine embroidery

Were the instructions easy to follow?
yes, but this was my second sew. I didn't even take them out of the envelope this tiime.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love just about everything. I don't know if there is anything I don't like.

Fabric Used:
safety orange fleece--chosen by my 9 year old son.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added machine embroidery

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I already know I will be making this again. My boys are looking to have a full wardrobe of hoodies. I may be making a version in jersey, but I will have to drop the size.

Conclusion:
This is a great pattern. It is quick. Easy and can be made several times.
To see the embroidery or other photos, see my post on Mrs. Toad Sews.

How cute is this!! And the embroidery adds just the right touch! Isn't it nice when your kids want you to sew for them?

Love it! I really like to hear of kids getting involved in making the choices--it kind of personalizes it for them from the start.
