So far we’ve had some pretty amazing reviews, haven’t we? We’ve seen the Lucy Tunic, the School Days Jacket, and some Dragon Puppet Mittens. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been having a little TOO much fun pressing “Pay Now” on the Shwin Designs digital patterns. (Sorry, honey).
Speaking of patterns, don’t forget to sign up for the Shwin Designs giveaway! They are giving away THREE patterns to one random winner. Awesome, right!?
And make sure you scroll to the bottom of this post for more goodies. This time we are giving away some Flashback Skinny Tee patterns!
Well, today you get to hear about one of my favorite patterns for Fall. The only problem I had in pulling this together is that we aren’t having very Fall-like weather around these parts. In fact, it was 101 degrees today. Yes, you read that right: 101!
Southern California’s “Fall” weather often calls for little more than a light long-sleeved tee or cardigan. Sometimes my kids wear hoodies, but that’s mostly in the dead of winter.
I’m sure it’s not much of a surprise, but one of my very favorite (and most in-use) patterns is Made by Rae’s Flashback Skinny Tee. My cutting table looks like a FBST assembly line as we speak.
Let’s take a look at how I’ve used this pattern in the past:
|1. The Jess Cardigan 2. Long sleeved FBST 3. Green and white FBST 4. Pink ruffled FBST|
For KCWC last week I made Hudson a Space version, at his request. If you haven’t heard yet, he’s in love with space.
|Fabric was purchased from The Fabric Fairy|
If you want to learn how to sew with knits, but are scared to get started, I definitely suggest this pattern as a good one to start with. The directions are clear and I’ve always had great results. You can use either a regular sewing machine, a serger, or both.
He wanted me to show you his planets one more time.
