Whew, it’s been a while! This summer has been busy with so many things with the kids, I decided that the sewing needed to take a back seat. But boy, I did miss it! Oh, I did a few things here and there. I did make some swim diapers, which have been of great use all summer! I wish I would have started sewing before Grace was born, I could have made her diapers. Next time….;)
So, I’ve been wanting to dive into the world of knits. I finally took the plunge. I ordred a bunch, okay a ton, of really cute knit fabric from Girl Charlee. They have some of the cutest knit fabric on line that I have found. It was hard cleaning out my “shopping cart” before I checked out! So, next was to find a new great pattern. And I did just that…of course on Etsy. But, I don’t know how I have missed this woman’s store and patterns before…they are absolutely adorable and JUST what I have been looking for! (she is also another homeschool mama) Check her stuff out…her store is called Lilygiggle.
So, I ordered a two legging patterns, which she promptly sent. AND she went out of her way to let me know I could pick another pattern, since there was a special that I didn’t realize. Woohoo!! So, I picked out a super cute bubble tank.
I ran to Walmart to buy some knit to practice on. One thing about knit fabric I don’t understand…you can’t find it hardly anywhere. Super annoying. Anyway, Walmart has had the same jersey knit fabric on clearance for an eternity, so I picked that up.
Sewing on the knit went way better than I anticipated. Took some practice, but I think I have it figured out. Once it clicks, it clicks.
So, here is the practice outfit. Please don’t mind my model…she was NOT in the picture taking mood. All because I wouldn’t let her wear her pink cowboy boots for the “photoshoot”. I finally caved. 😉
