Happy Hump Day Lovelies!
Today is my stop on the Make Laundry, Don’t Do Laundry Blog Tour! The challenge of the tour is to start and complete a garment in the time it would take us to do a load of laundry. How fun is that?! Ironically, I was folding laundry when I saw the notification popped up on my phone that something new was posted in one of my PDF groups, and welcomed the break to check it…..any excuse to not fold laundry is a good one to me. I would much rather be sewing than doing anything else …especially NOT laundry! And what better way to cancel the need to fold laundry than to MAKE a garment instead? But EVEN BETTER, how about making a garment FROM the laundry you’re ignoring? Or EVEN BETTER THAN THAT, using it as a chance to check a pattern block you’ve been working on for a while. *insert cheesy grin here* It was just a perfect coincidence!
If you’ve being following me for a while on IG or FB, you might have seen a few times in the past where I’ve mentioned taking a course in learning how to create PDF Patterns, – I even created one, did a tutorial for it and everything, and it’s still just sitting there on my desktop. I don’t know why, but it just didn’t feel like the right time for that one. BUT not this one, this one I’m completely excited about – for the sole reason that it’s NOT a typical pdf pattern, this pattern is a pattern block that can ONLY be used in UPCYCLING a collared shirt. It’s a super quick sew, it only took 1 hour to complete – from printing the pattern to completing the garment.
Not sure what was happening here, but I think she was channeling her inner rockstar…lol
The pattern ranges from a size 6 mths to a size 4 and has two views. It’s in testing this week, but I couldn’t help but share with you a SNEAK PEEK! I do plan on having it completed long before Father’s Day, as this would make for a PERFECT Father’s Day Upcycle don’t you think? If you’d like to be the first to know when the pattern is live, please subscribe to the newsletter HERE.
