It was so freaking easy, I think it took all of two hours, I cut it out yesterday and would have finished it but I had to stop sewing so I finished it tonight in about 1 hour—that’s what I’m talking about.
I also mentioned I wanted to make a few knit tops for Spring but couldn't find any cute knit prints at JoAnns. Well today after work I headed over to Hancock because they had McCall’s patterns for 1.99 and I wanted to pick up 5557, after seeing it on Adrienne’s blog. I was pleasantly surprised to find knit’s on sale for 2.99/yd and as you can see I stocked up and should be able to crank out quite a few knit tops. In addition to 5557 I also picked up these two.
I purchased this fabric last summer and was going to use a different pattern but when I saw Adrienne’s I switched.
I usually don't wear dresses, remember my cankles, in case you don't know what cankles, thanks to my Dad's genes I don't have ankles but sometimes I get over it and wear a dress every now and then especially in the summer, this is another one I saw on Gold’s blog last year.
This fabric will present a challenge with the border but I really like the fabric and I'm considering these two patterns. With either one I could use the border at the top or the bottom, we'll see....
This funky knit and this funky pattern, should make one funky top. I'm leaning toward the black/white strip view.
Notice all the patterns are fast and easy. That jacket left me fried, I need quick and easy for awhile but there's nothing wrong with that, challenge yourself and then give yourself a break. I don't know about you but that's one of the main reasons I sew, self expression.
This weekend promises to be filled with quick and easy sewing, I can't wait and it's only Monday.
Before I forget again, I used a size F crochet hook for the scrubby. I knew I would forget something and that’s kind of important.
