I’ve got another t-shirt made from my Flutter Sleeve T-Shirt Sewing Pattern to share with you today!
We’ve had quite a bit of rain lately and decided to get outside and take a few pictures in our creek. It’s flowing great right now, but with summer just around the corner and the meteorologists predicting a la nina weather pattern, I doubt it will be flowing much longer. It’s a perfect background to show of one of the t-shirts sewn from my latest pattern, the Flutter Sleeve T-shirt. (This free pattern is available for download here.)
The fabrics I used on this t-shirt are so soft and stretchy- perfect for tops. These two particular fabrics are leftovers from the Roller Skate Skirt I sewed last year and are now both sold out. But the flower pattern is part of the Kaufman Laguna knit collection and the stripe is from Funkalicious Fabrics. She has a few other colors available.
I finally unboxed the coverstitch machine I got for Christmas to sew the hems for this shirt. This machine (Janome CoverPro 1000cpx) sews like a dream. Before this one, I was using the Brother coverstitch. If you are in the market for a coverstitch machine, Do not waste your money on the Brother! (The Janome is less that $200 more and worth every penny.) The Brother was so finicky I could not even stand to use it- it added at least an hour to every project just trying to get it to sew properly.
