Hey there, in the chaos of the holiday seasons the extra posts that I throw in here didn’t make it.  So as we are rounding into the new year and things are becoming slightly less chaotic I’ve pulled one together for you.

Shortly before I started this blog I sewed this fun shirt with a rem I picked up in the Dallas fabric district.

When I saw the fabric I knew I could do something fun with it.  The way the pattern was laid out was certain to make an interesting shirt that definitely didn’t look homemade.

This was one of the first projects I made with this type of fabric so it was a learning experience.  I’ve made several things in this type of fabric since and I’m seeing improvements and feel like my execution is getting better and better.

Best of all, it was easy and quick to make and since I had left overs from this dress . . .

I’m using my scraps to see if I like it as a shirt.  I’ll whip that one up after Christmas.  I’d do it now but my serger thread needs to be changed and I loathe changing it . . .

Have a great holiday season with your families!

I'm a mom to five, a wife to one and love sewing. I learned when I was a little girl but returned to it in full force in the last couple of years. The process of creating things keeps me sane. I set a lofty goal for myself, one project a week for a year. I'm four months in and it's awesome. I'm amazed at how much I've learned and improved. Set a goal to learn something new and devote weekly time to it. You will be amazed at the results.
