As anxious as I was to get started sewing knit and using the cover stitch machine, I was kinda nervous about it. But, I just needed to jump in and get started.
There are some amazing patterns out there and I had to smile as I was getting started. I’ve bought several from Patterns for Pirates. I’m using Butterfly Cardi for Addie’s Cardi. There’s a matching adult size cardi called Cocoon Cardi.
In high school, I made pretty much everything I wore. I would sit and look at patterns in pattern books, find the pattern I wanted, hope they had my size . . buy it and get started. Today . . buy the pattern online, print it out, tape or glue all the pieces together, cut out the size you need and . . done.
Everything would be so easy . . except for Boots. Good grief . . that can manages to stay in my way.
It’s so nice to have all the sizes and be able to print them at home.
Polar fleece was about the only “knit” fabric I have here and being so anxious to get started sewing, I figured a polar fleece cardigan would be my first project with sewing knits.
I had this owl fleece and I had solid pink piece.
I decided on the pink fleece. I was hoping to have enough to make one for Addie and Nicole but I don’t think I’m going to have enough fabric.
This little cardi could be made, start to finish, in less than hour now that I know how to do it.
Depending on how much sewing time I get today, this should be pretty easy to get finished.
I’m sewing it on the sewing machine, finishing the seams on the serger and dong the trim work on the cover stitch machine. I’m thinking . . three machines? Really? But . . I’m having fun and I suppose that’s important. That’s my story.
