February Knits!

  February presented a sewing challenge in the world of knits.  Knit fabric can be very fun and very scary.  We love its comfort and easy care, however on the sewing machine, it can be a nightmare!  I am happy to say that I have survived and even enjoyed this easy, simple structured knit project. The pattern was Burda 7866 .  Super simple pattern with few pieces to sew. I fell in love with the color of this fabric.  The knit was a bamboo with 2% Lycra.  The Lycra has some memory to it, so wash and wear is fantastic.  Nice pattern for a beginning sewer or for a quick project to build on a wardrobe. The next knit project?  I am thinking a pair of bamboo pajama pants would be oh so fantastic for summer!!!
