After flipping through, this clutch is the only design that struck my fancy from the Bags; the modern classics book by Sue Kim. I think it turned out alright and I'll probably end up making a second or third down the line.
The instructions are easy to follow for a beginner or seasoned seamstress.
Proud to show off my latest gift for a big Phish fan who has an adorable little one.
The first attempt was done without using the markings on the pattern and you can see how it may not fit properly.... The second one should fit perfectly!
I wear a lot of cardigans. I decided it was time to start making a few myself. McCall's pattern 6996 was super easy to make and for one of my first times sewing a knit garment, I think it turned out excellent.
I did an awful job sewing the back so I just braided a few scraps and sewed it on. After realizing that it didn't cover the biggest flaw on the back, I was forced to seam rip and re-stitch.
It was worth the effort.
An amazing friend of mine gifted me this fabric and I could tell she didn't quite want to part with it. I decided to make her a little something out of it as a thank you and so she could still enjoy it.
The free pattern from Sew4Home.com was super easy and I love the way it turned out.
