I am not overly protective. I think that children should be allowed to roam around, get their bruises and discover what their bodies can and cannot. Children should not be kept back and wrapped in bubble wrap.
I AM hysterical about one thing: Hoodies. And with good reason. The
last couple of years there has been deathly accidents in my country,
where children as old as 9 years old has been strangled by the hoods of
their hoodies. Not to talk about alle the near misses.
So absolutely NO hoodies in my son's wardrobe.
Before. Those wretched hoods.
I measured 8,5 cm down + seam allowance. About 11 cm in the front by the zipper.
I turned both fashion fabric and lining to the wrong side and pinned the edge.
Hemmed and collar doubled down - ready for use.
