I CAN Zip Hoodie Sewing Pattern

(5 customer reviews)

$14.00 AUD

Level: Beginner+
Prem./Small Newborn – Age 12


The I CAN Zip Hoodie is a raglan style zip top. It is a great pattern for those looking to sew their first zip in stretch fabrics.

The I CAN Zip Hoodie goes from prem./small newborn right up to age 12. It is suitable for advanced beginners.

There are two zip options. One is simple and designed for those new to sewing zips because it has fewer steps and a simple finish. The second option is a bound zip which is perfect for those with a little more experience/confidence and creates a very polished finish.

Both zip options come with lots of detailed diagrams, step by step instructions and helpful tips so that everyone can say ‘I CAN’ sew a zip.

There are also options to colour block and add pockets.

    I have made 3 of these now, absolutely love the pattern and the toddler enjoys wearing them. With the raglan style sleeve these are super quick to make and the zip is nothing to be scary of either.

    I made this in fleece material, age 9 for my daughter. It is her favourite cardi ever! The instructions are great to follow and I’m so pleased with the finished garnet.. I would definitely recommend this pattern and make one again. Just make sure you make the size based in the child’s measurements and their age.

    When you’re in doubt if you’ve already got the skills to sew a zip hoodie, this pattern has you covered. It guides you through all the steps and is really easy to follow. As a bonus, you can add fun details with printed bias tape in case you’re using some. I only wish there was a pocket option for the plain version without colour blocking. But maybe I’ll find a hack for this in my next version.

    This was the first Waves and Wild pattern I made and it has led to many more! I was very much a beginner sewer but the instructions are so clear and so easy to follow. If you’re scared of zips, this is the pattern for you – you won’t be scared after! I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve made this pattern now.

    I love the colour block option on this top, it gives a very neat hidden pocket.
    The instructions are clear and easy to follow, like all Waves and Wild patterns.
    This is an easy way to sew a zip, simple to sew,. A more complicated pattern with zip-guards etc would give a neater finish.
