It’s my goal to make something new every week. What better day then Monday? It will give me something to look forward to at the beginning of the week! Starting next week, I’ll incorporate a sew-a-long with my Monday make. Are you ready for what I’m going to start with?
I’m going to be taking some t-shirts that don’t fit me well and make them into raglans.. if you’re not familiar with the jargon, that is a baseball-style shirt.
Since this will be my first sew-along, let me tell you how it will work (if you’re wanting to do it with me):
1. You’ll have your materials prepped and ready to go on the day we start. This means fabric and pattern.
2. This is what I’ll be covering in the tutorial:
- Pattern piecing and tracing.
3. It will take a couple of days to do this. You can join me on the same day, or catch up on your own time. I’ll be doing videos to show the process, so you can come back and watch them anytime.
I am so excited about this! My favorite raglan patterns are from Patterns for Pirates, look for the Slim Fit Raglan or the Women’s raglan (looser fit then the Slim Fit.) and I also love the Centerfield Raglan from GreenStyleCreations.
Go grab your pattern and fabric now!
I’m also going to pick someone to win a yard of fabric for this project! Send me an email telling me why you’re excited to join and I’ll pick a winner! Deadline is Wednesday 1/31/2018 at midnight MST.
I have got to do some super fun projects lately, but I have a bad habit of not taking pictures.
My sister is having a baby girl any day and requested a car seat cover that doubles as a nursing cover- I’m sure you’ve seen them around! I have a lot of fun fabric and I could decide which to use, so I ended up making her two:
I made a pattern for these using this awesome tutorial. The mauve stripe fabric is called double brushed poly, aka butter, and the floral stripe and solid are both jersey fabric. They are all 4-way stretch, which is important for the functionality of these covers. The fabric is from Raspberry Creek Fabrics. You guys, she designs and prints her own fabric, and the prices are amazing.
Be sure to enter to win a yard of fabric!
See you Monday for the sew-along!
