Have you ever met Ash?
He is the little boy from Pokemon for those not in the know.
I have a nephew who loooooves Pokemon at the moment and as we are going to see him soon I have been busy. Annoyingly Ash changes what he wears every new game that is released...
So this is the Ash I chose. The black and white version.
And drum roll please...
...here we have my version. I have gone long sleeves as I made it for winter, lined with polar fleece for warmth and I'm really sorry about giving a little boy white clothes but it had to be done (but I am glad it won't be me washing it.).
I used the Blank Slate Study Hall Jacket and played around with the details. I got to have fun working out the piping and how to divide the pattern to add multiple colours and how to do the kangaroo pocket.
I have to say I am so glad the pattern is fantastic. I was probably a bit silly to use a pattern I have never used before but it looked like it would be perfect. It did sew up a little on the small side, thankfully my nephew is also a little on the small side so it should fit well.
So there you have it, our oh so cute Pokemon jacket.
