Me – Made – May 2013

Day 3 and I am still into the Me – Made challenge. Today I wore my blue hoody knit that I made using my Craftsy course by Meg McElwee. http://imake.gg/2013/01/10/things-i-like-thursday-sewing-with-knits/

I am sure I will not be able to keep up with pace of this challenge, but I will try to sew everyday! Tonight will be the knit skirt in black another Meg pattern…it is suppose to be +24!

Sewing with Knits

If you are looking for a beginner pattern, I recommend ‘Sewing with Knits’ by Meg McElwee (Blog SewLiberated) on Craftsy. Super inspiring, non intimating, and you get over 6 patterns! I started with her first project which is the hoody.

Love how easy it was to put together (1 evening & and a 1/2 video tutorial). It is so comfy and my style. I picked a waffle jersey in grey and have enough left over to make an american apparel jersey infinity scarf knock off.

Heading to the fabric store today to by 3 more metres of this knit in dark navy….to make another. I think I will sew one size smaller to get it a bit more form fitting.

Update: Love the drk navy in a size medium. Very cozy to wear today, especially since it is snowing this morning!

Thanks Meg. You are an awesome teacher!
