A while back I mentioned that I would upload some pictures of past projects. I also seem to recall warning that it would be picture heavy and that it might take a while to load. So, here it is.
First up is the shirt I find myself often reaching for in the closet…It’s hemmed right now, but I think I need to serge the raw edges because that metallic stuff is rather itchy and then re-hem it. Overall though, it’s comfy, looks nice, and I like the colors. As this was a fabric remnant using a $1 pattern and about $3 worth of fabric, it was also a pretty inexpensive shirt. 🙂
I love the collar on it, so I’m giving you a closeup–it’s got one little pucker in it, but with the fabric you don’t notice it unless you are really looking for it. And so you know, if you see me wearing this shirt and walk up trying to see the pucker on it, I’m pretty sure I’m going to give you a good thwack on the head for being a little too close to my chest. Sorry. 😛
My second favorite shirt, which I reach for anytime I know I’m going to be somewhere that has very minimal heating (because I’m a hot-blooded person) is this sweater knit that I stitched up from a remnant at my absolute favorite fabric store. All told this sweater cost about $5 and 2 hours of my time. Pretty awesome, eh? Pattern is KS 2856.
And remember those pajamas I made for Christmas presents? Here are two…I don’t have pictures of the other two.
And I made some footy PJ’s for my son, and they turned out to be a bit big, but he’ll grow into them quickly I’m sure. After this experience I learned that I’m really not a fan of polar fleece, it’s already started to kind of “pill” or whatever, and it’s only been washed once. 😦 Also, beware that the gripper fabric is kind of a pain to cut as well–you’ll want really sharp scissors. However, the end result still looks uber cute, and that’s what matters, right?
