Sewing FOs :)

Craftsy Sewing With Knits FO

I think this must be my first sewing FO that I am really proud of. Not only does it feel amazing, but I am thrilled how it turned out as this is my very first hoodie that I have ever sewn!

I lined the hoodie because I felt that the fleece was a bit too thin. I was a bit nervous about this step but it turned out quite well.

I double stitched the seams and hems in white thread for a contrast.

I loved how the cross over at the top of the hoodie turned out, though I was a bit nervous as I had to sew over 5 layers of material, but my trusty machine did that without a hitch.

Sewing With Knits - Craftsy

Until now I have always found sewing a little frustrating and patterns a bit unclear, but that is over thanks to Meg McElwee and her amazing Craftsy Course - Sewing With Knits

Online Sewing Class

This course includes 5 basic wardrobe patterns - a hoodie, T-shirt (2 versions), Shorts and Pants, a Surplice Dress and a skirt pattern.

An added extra of this course is how to dunk-dye your fabrics.

These patterns can be changed to suit your needs and with Meg's step-by-step video help I am sure to be making myself a whole new wardrobe! I already have orders from hubby and Jas for their own take on this pattern ;)

What I love about this Craftsy course is that it is available to me Lifelong, so I will be able to revisit it in the future should I need to.

The hoodie is my first project to be completed, and can't wait for tomorrow as I will be starting on project 2 - the T-Shirt :) Watch this space!

I can only warmly recommend this course to all of you out there who find sewing with knits a little daunting, or for those of you looking for a great resource for some wardrobe basics!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend

  3. Looks amazing, congratulations! I've found it really hard with Craftsy because of the issue of some of the courses not allowing access to things more than once. I may have a look at this one....*wanders over*
