After getting the hang of sewing knits using my overlocker during the Kids Clothing Week Challenge, I decided to put my Spoonflower order* to good use, making more clothes for the kids using this and other knit fabrics.
When I saying for the kids, I really mean sewing for Isabelle – although I do plan to make Noah some owl tops (plus he keeps asking me for one). But first I have to draft a raglan tee pattern.
As you can see from the top photo the owl fabric on the little leggings has faded a bit, I made these about a week ago and they have been washed twice already, with a noticeable fade the first time, I hope they don’t fade any further.
Here’s the pants on my little model soon after I finished them. Brushing her teeth is pretty much her favourite pastime.
The pattern and tutorial I used is from here. I had to take about 5cm off the bottom and use a bigger seam allowance to get them the right size for Isabelle, but all in all I love the pattern – it’s such a great way to make a feature fabric go a long way.
The envelope tee pattern is from my Growing up Sew Liberated book.
Joining in with my creative space.
(* Just to clarify (as I have been asked) I didn’t design the spoonflower fabric that I purchased, these are others designs, although I hope to do that in the future.)
