Sequined Heart Appliqué Hoodie | Jalie 3355
A sequined heart appliqué hoodie, just in time for Valentine’s Day!
I made this hoodie with Jalie 3355. Well, I made half of it; then found out I had 2 days instead of 2 weeks to move. So I finished it here at the farm. This is the first sewing project I’ve completed in my new sewing room:)
I have a strict policy about finishing one project before starting another. I know myself real well…if I ever get a WIP pile it will never die. So I don’t even let it start!
I started this hoodie with a lace kangaroo pocket but it looked weird. When I took it off it was too boyish. I added a traditional pocket out of suede; but it wasn’t right either. So we ended up with this fun sequined heart appliqué.
We chose an unidentified scrap of pale pink whatever, and added a lace overlay. The lace is a part of an old tablecloth that I’ve used for countless projects; yet still remains in my scrap bin. I didn’t trim around the edges of the lace much, I’ll see how it washes first. The decorative stitches are brown; mostly because I didn’t want to change the thread.
I hand sewed the sequins on with invisible thread. I spent an hour sewing on just the few sequins you see. Hand sewing isn’t my talent, but doing it with invisible thread was incredibly tedious and annoying.
I wanted to start the next project already!

I’m sure some of you have caught on that I sew the same patterns over and over. I have enough patterns to never sew the same thing twice, but I tend to stick to what I know works. I do the same thing in restaurants. Is your style to be adventurous, or tried and true?
