The hooded Safari raglan from China, Kids Clothes Week summer 2015

Are you ready to travel with me? Today I'm taking you to China, land of the pandabears. I made my youngest (and huge pandabear fan) a Safari Raglan, the latest pattern by Titchy Threads.

You can check this post to see my full review. For today's version I added the hood of the Rowan tee (again a Titchy Threads pattern) to the raglan body. An easy adjustment and a perfect fit!

The pandabear fabric, an Andrea Lauren design, was a gift from Alles fuer selbermacher, one of our  #parissewsocial sponsors. I think it's really fun and cute, it's a heavy jersey, more of a sweatshirt fabric even and very easy to work with,

    1. Thanks Annika! My sister brought the hat with her from China as a gift for the boys, along with a lot more panda stuff :)

  2. This is adorable! Perfect fabric for a panda loving boy, I got it in the same colour as you so could make a matching one :) It wouldn't be as good without that amazing hat though!

  4. Love this! I just ordered this fabric for my panda crazy girl! But in a different color. How does the color hold up when you wash it? Does it fade much?

    1. Ah she's going to love it, such a fun fabric. The colours hold up pretty good, you can barely tell the difference from new. I do wash the tee almost cold (30C) as I do with all my laundry.
