Learning to Sew Adventure

The ROSENPANTS!

These I'm super hyped with. I love the pattern, they are super soft, and I managed to slim down my pattern to get a much nicer fit!

Cardigan

This was my first attempt at a cardigan, very comfortable and I can see myself making many more of these over the winter months!

The second attempt is a much lighter knit fabric, very soft!

Simple Bag

Made a little purse/bag thing. Mostly to get used to using the button foot on my machine!

Take two was much better! I managed to size down the pattern successfully!

This is a groovy tie-dye pattern, much lighter weight fabric. Didn't attach cuffs to give more of a hooded longsleeve vibe
