I am an avid babywearer and especially love my soft structured carriers. I also love to sew and craft. I have decided to marry the two and create lots of fun goodies to go with my carriers! Because I know there are lots of you out there who are crafty like me, I've created some tutorials to help you out. Enjoy!

Kinderpack Hoodie Hood Pattern and Tutorial

I have had so many requests for the Kinderpack version of my hoodie hood pattern and tutorial. 
So now, I present to you the Kinderpack Hoodie Hood Tutorial!!

I love that the Koolnit hood is breathable, but my kid HATES flat hoods on all carriers! He will scream bloody murder when it's up if he happens to be awake. That flat hood also does little to nothing to help protect my kid's head from the sun or other elements. 

If you're in the same boat as me or you just love that you can personalize your carriers with fun designs like the one pictured above, it's time to make a hoodie hood!

This pattern will fit a Kinderpack in a standard size. It may be adjusted or adapted to use with other sizes; however instructions for this are not provided in this tutorial. If you've made this hoodie in other sizes, feel free to leave your notes in the comments for others to enjoy!

This pattern is reversible, but keep in mind that you will need to apply two sets of snaps to change the direction. Also, hoods with embellishments on the outside may not be comfortable to use when reversed.

Tula Flat Hood Pattern and Tutorial


I love the simplicity of a flat hood, but sometimes the canvas gets a little hot. I also feel like the stock hood is starting to get a little small. When my son wakes up he immediately pulls at it. That's why I decided to make a new double-sided flat hood.
