McCall’s m6649 in Flannel

Bring on the mystery flannel fabric I found while wasting time. I wish I knew more about this fabric, but unfortunately, I can't give you any more information than that. I can tell you I got it at Fabric Mill in Orem, UT. I got to sew this shirt using my new sewing machine, Babylock… Continue reading McCall’s m6649 in Flannel

McCall’s m6044 in Kaufman Mammoth Flannel Americana

Anybody that has sewed using plaid has done it, accidentally flipped the plaid upside down. I made this flannel shirt awhile back ago, and when I cut out the arms, I cut them the wrong way.

Nothing beats a good sweatshirt and urban fit track pant combo. In the last week, I've made myself several sweaters out of the most glorious sweatshirting fabric you could imagine.

This fabric is resilient, flexible, durable, does not pill, and is super easy to work with.

Peek-A-Boo Riverside Robe

I've put off sewing a fleece robe for 2 years, almost as long as I have been sewing. Why? First, I was not looking forward to tracing out the pattern. B (or second), I was not looking forward to cutting out long pieces of fabric that wouldn't fit on my sewing table, so I'd have to get on the floor and cut out fabric. Third, I hate sewing with fleece. IV (or D or Fourth), if you are a Doctor Who fan, I hope you got my joke...
