introducing the nature walk pullover top sewing pattern

This versatile pattern is great for boys and girls. It’s a cool-weather pullover with color blocking for added interest. If you make it from light-weight quilting cottons, it can also be a great layering piece in not-so-cool weather, too.

One of my favorite aspects of this pattern is that you can select a heavier fabric as the base and a lighter printed fabric as the contrast. The base fabric forms a sort of lining for the full front and back of the pullover. This provides the insulation of the heavier fabric all over the pullover while the contrast fabric brings some visual interest. You might try pairing a solid color cotton fleece or terrycloth with a quilting cotton for the contrast fabric. The fleece or terry will line the pullover while the quilting cotton will make it more interesting on the outside.

Use the contrast fabric for the collar and neck facing for a fun little detail.

Nature Walk Pullover Sewing Pattern

The kangaroo pocket is easy to sew and is fun for children to use. It extends all the way across the front of the pullover and is formed by the two layers of fabric. There isn’t a pocket bag, and the inside of the pullover has a clean finish.

Nature Walk Pullover Top Sewing Pattern

This pattern will work best with woven fabrics, but feel free to experiment with knits, too. I’m looking forward to making it with fine-wale corduroy or lightweight stretch denim, but I might make one from cotton fleece for chilly fall days.

This pattern comes with a quick and easy knit pant, which we’ll discuss shortly.  And in my next post I’ll introduce you to sewing with knits. No, you don’t need a serger. And it’s incredibly easy!

  1. I am very excited about this pattern, as I’m in SC and the chilly days are on the way!! But I love pullovers too, so that helps. I purchased a print and solid microfleece to give this a go!

  2. I am absolutely thrilled to see this pattern , it is just what I was after for my son,
    I’m sure my girls will love it too, but boys patterns are much harder to find !
    Thankyou Liesl

    Oooo! I’m really excited about this pattern now. I thought it was for knits, and while I love a knit shirt finding a wide variety of them is a hard. I can’t wait to make a couple of these for my son.

  5. I can’t wait to get started on this one. I am making this for my nephew. It will be my first time working with an interlock knit….. I am very excited about the pants and the lovely kangaroo pocket!
