I'm not proud of it, but I have a bad, bad habit of purchasing sewing books and then never making a thing out of them.
Amy Butler's Little Stiches for Little Ones? Got it. Never made a thing out of it.
Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing? Got it. Never made a thing out of it.
Anna Maria Horner's Handmade Beginnings? Got it. Never made a thing out of it.
You get the point, right?
But perhaps I'm turning a corner, because with this project I've made two (yes, two!) projects out of Meg McElwee's Growing Up Sew Liberated. And for the record, I love both of them.
Now I should probably say that knits are definitely not my favorite thing to sew with, because while I've had some successes in the past, they've definitely been accompanied by some major failures. But with all the cute knit items that I'm seeing lately (like this one...love!) I've become convinced that I need to get over my apprehension of knits once and for all.
And I'm hoping that this little tee will do it for me.
Now my only complaint will be the slim-pickings that exist when it comes to knit fabrics.
Yeah, yeah...I know that Spoonflower offers amazing knit prints galore, but for the time being I'm avoiding Spoonflower like the plague because I'm afraid of an instant addiction to their adorable array of knits. And the last thing that I need right now is a twenty-seven dollar per yard fabric habit!
