All tagged Sewing Tutorial
I love the summer and being in the sun! My kids love to swim and walk on the beach. When we do these fun in the sun activities, I am never sure what to use to cover up. I don’t like pulling on pants over my swim suit and I feel the swim suit poking out when I wear a dress. I wanted to buy something that looks specifically like a swim suit cover up. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find anything that I really liked. Most of them were really gauzing feeling and that makes me feel itchy. Many of them were dark in color and when I am in the sun I don’t really want something black covering me. So, this led me to searching for the consistency and color fabric that I wanted and get creative on making my own.
With everything that I use in sewing, sometimes I need a container to store smaller items that can get lost in the shuffle of things. Things like rotary replacement blades, clothing tag fasteners, safety pins, etc. But as I searched the store shelves to find something that might fit that need, everything looked so…plastic. I wanted something to fit in with all that surrounded me. Fabric!
In our house, regardless of the season, you are never more than an arms length away from a warm blanket. This is totally by my design because I am always freezing. Always! It could be the middle of summer with the sun shining through our windows and I will still have a blanket on top of me.
So, with this freezing winter season in Ohio, I have been looking for items to make that will keep me toasty. I was searching around Instagram and saw one of my favorite ladies had posted a fleece poncho tutorial. The picture that Melly Sews showcased looked like the perfect item to keep me fabulously warm.
