I've been wanting to make animal hoodies for a few years, and my sister has shown interest in helping me with the patterns on the weekends after my hours have been put into commission work for the week. The goal would be to have 1-3 designs ready several months before Halloween so we'd be able to take "made to order" orders in time for the holiday.
This is very far from being set in stone, right now we want to gauge interest and think it over. As all you craftsy folks know, it will take many many hours and weeks to develop patterns we're happy with selling in a variety of sizes. It'd be a huge undertaking so we want to make sure the interest is there before diving in.
What we do want to stress is that these would be high quality with sturdy professional finished seams. We've been looking into options such as lining them, using sweatshirt material rather than fleece, etc. We've seen a lot of fleece hoodies for sale at anime conventions, but we're interested in making very durable long lasting hoodies.
There is a survey here, and any feedback would be greatly appreciated! www.surveymonkey.com/s/93QXK38
