This was a top I’ve had rolling around in my head for a while, and I knew I had to try it. For this top, I used the P4P Twist Back Top pattern. As chenille is VERY prone to stretching/distorting and also unravelling, I changed up the construction techniques to suit the fabric.
This last week, I got the opportunity to sew with some new-to-me athletic fabric bases, tencel and tricot. So I will preface by saying that both of these fabrics are incredible, and I only wish I knew about them sooner because they are perfect for summer! However, that green jacket (McCalls #m7199) was just about the death of me!
I’ve been a Cricut user since they were founded, all the way back to the mini personal machine. I seen the evolution of their technology, and wow has it come a long way! So when they came out with the most recent machine, the Maker, I wasn’t 100% sold on whether or not I needed…
If you know me, and have seen my sewing, you know it pretty well that if I have enough fabric to make a mommy and me outfit, then I definitely will! Not only can you not find really cute mommy and son outfits in ready-to-wear, but it’s so much more fun when I get to make styles that we both love in fabrics that coordinate!
