GETSETSEW AUGUST: Sweatshirt!
If you haven't caught my live in Kernow Sewcial earlier, here it is, #getsetsewaugust challenge is to make a Sweatshirt!
There's a lot of info in my live so do watch it back, but in a nutshell it doesn't have to specifically be a sweatshirt - it could be a hoody, or an oversized boxy sweater, or a jumper dress... it could be for you, your partner, your child or grandchild your neighbour, your mate, your dog! I just want you to have a go at working with a more stable stretch fabric like a french terry or a sweat-shirting, maybe add a ribbing neckline or cuff, see how it feels.
You don't have to buy anything for this, you can repurpose an old sweatshirt and chop it up if you like, have a go at your own 're-invention' challenge.
I will upload the information sheet to the files but the key thing you need to know is:
You will need a use a ball point or stretch needle....
Also this is a great opportunity to try a twin needle for some of these patterns where it might be appropriate - they're so fun!
As with last month I have put together a pinterest board with a whole array of pattern options for you to suit all tastes and skills and budgets, including some kids patterns. If you know of a good pattern and its not on there, link it below this post when I share it and I'll add it in.
I have a 2 year old who is, right now at 11 o clock at night going completely nuts and insisting I sing sleepy bunnies so she can dance, while making siren noises and demanding peppa pig, so needless to say I am somewhat behind this evening....
Get, Set, Sew!!!! August has Landed
