The promised tutorial Here it is! This is another of my tutorials for knits, for which you need to use an existing fitted t-shirt pattern as a base. I think most people will have one or more of those in pattern stash, and if you don't, you can always go and get Burdastyle's Lydia. I'm using my knit sloper, which has more waist shaping than Lydia. As ever, I recommend using a tried and tested pattern as a start for alteration. Ladies Raglan Top Pattern - Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom by Jamie Sanders Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links. Be sure to grab your copy of this free sewing pattern! When paired with leggings and shearling boots, this Ladies Raglan Top Pattern is perfect for a morning of school drop off, running errands and snuggling on the couch! The length is tailor-made for me, but you can easily lengthen or shorten the pattern to whatever length is most flattering for you.

A cute fix for a hole in the knee of jeans I wish this was my original idea, but I found it on Pinterest. I did however, do things a little differently than the original. The original poster sewed hers on by hand, but when I patch a knee, I like to sew by machine (because it's faster, and I am lazy, lol), so I seam ripped open the leg to sew mine on the machine, and I, of course, used felted recycled wool. Fresh Off the Bolt: The Bella Dress: Free PDF Pattern and Tutorial Yeppers- I actually finished cleaning up my Bella dress pattern last night so that I could share it with you today! I originally hand-drafted the pattern when I first made it but I would've been too embarrassed to share that ugly mess with you so I worked for a few hours on Illustrator to get it all prettified for all you sewing enthusiasts! This is my first pattern I'm offering for free and it's made to my daughter's specific measurements. She's a small 4T with a 19" waist. The finished waist on the dress measures approximately 22" for a comfortable but not too loose fit on her.

What do you need: just a stretch fabric - jersey being the best, but one with high percentage of elasticity in it. Here's the how-to: Every step in the making of this tunic is made with the right side (the face ) of the fabric facing up.Do step 1. You don't want to mess up step 2. Here you fold the fabric again and cut just a tiny part (where shown on pic) because if you cut it too big there is no turning back - the opening will be too large and the fabric ruined.

Marshmallow Swirl Mash-Up Tutorial Note: Please read this listing carefully before downloading. This tutorial will allow you to create a mash up of two of our favorite patterns. You will need to use the pattern pieces of the Peppermint Swirl Dress PDF Pattern for girls, and the Marshmallow Dress & Tunic PDF Pattern. The pattern pieces for both the bodice and the skirt are not included in this tutorial; this tutorial only covers how to mash up these two patterns. Are you ready to get creative?

fun wrap skirts I've been obsessed with making these wrap skirts lately. The yellow and pink (or mustard and mauve ) is two overlapping layers while the stripped one is just one. I left the edges raw - because I like the 'deconstructed' look. The waistband is finished and long enough to wrap around twice or tie into a long bow. Thank you so much for all the awesome feedback! Free Pattern Friday! Hooded Cowl Hi everybody! With Halloween coming I couldn’t resist the urge to make something costume related, so while this isn’t a plush I hope you all might still enjoy it! It’s a cozy hooded cowl dressed up either like a dragon or a unicorn. Paired with a warm coat or a fuzzy sweater I think it would be the perfect thing to keep you cozy and cute while trick-or-treating. It includes sizes from baby up to large adult so everyone in the family can have one!

Fabulous Free Pattern Friday....A Little Late I must apologize for not getting this post out on Friday. First of all, I had a raging headache and my Little Bit was once again having back problems. I sat on the sofa and rubbed her back and tried to make her feel better. Thankfully, we're both better. I did this post back in February.
