Time to cozy up! BAKA the Hooded Blanket PDF Pattern is a floor length hooded blanket that is perfect for lounging around the house with a new video game, a good book. Add-ons include puff antlers and paint on face templates! (not intended as sleepwear!) For boys and girls, ages 12M-16Y...heck, even some adults! (check the size chart to see if it could work!)
Your Saturday morning just gained so many snuggle points. You never knew you needed one until now! Are your kids like mine: it's the weekend, they wake up groggy, shuffle over to the couch, dragging the biggest blanket they can find and curl up inside? And are you tired of dragging said blanket back to the bedroom? Well, Baka the Hooded Blanket is sure to fix your blanket woes! It's fully lined with features like a paint-on (or dark iron-on transfer) face with 20+ different features in three sizes to mix and match, button closure (or velcro closure for younger kiddos), as well as little puff antlers! Oh! *** The pattern doesn't include the little bunny and bear ears. It's a freebie when you sign up for Sew Chibi Designs newsletter on her website.
