1) knit fabrics terrify me
2) I didn't own any knit fabrics
3) i had no idea what i was going to make
4) my SD card is having a few issues....
Anyway enough excuses!
I don't know why knit fabrics make me feel this way, when i first started sewing knit fabics were the ones i used on a regular basis (and i guess if i had just taken an easy option i could have made a pretty simple jumper in less than an hour...) I think it might have to do with the wrap dress that i/mum (mainly mum) made last year... while it looked great in the end it was pain while in progress.
And the second excuse was solved early in the month when i made my first order from Sew baby (more about the order later) and selected to buy a fabric remnant grab bag, i was surprised to find several knit pieces included.
This then led to solving the next problem, what to make, since it was a remnant i was limited to something pretty small, and while reading through a blog one day (no ideas who). I found a link to this pattern and thought i would give it a go.
and this is the result:
And.... it's reversible...
I am pretty happy with it, and it gave me a chance to use my funky new tool (see studs... i made studs!!)
And now on to the March challenge, to make a softie. As i ove making softies, have heaps and heaps of patterns and i need to make the nursery look cute, I've decided to make a softie a day for the month... am i nuts?? well probably.....
