There it was, the coolest knit fabric ever.
I didn't know what I would make with it, but two dollars for a meter and a half of potential, how could I say no?
I brought it home, and after a tiny bit of research and a look through my pinterest boards, I re-stumbled across a long time bit of inspiration. Tilly's tutorial on how to make a picnic blanket skirt without a pattern.
Perfect. And free? Awesome.
It was easy enough that I could do it, but challenging enough that I needed to be careful.
Gathering, button bands, waistbands, directional patterns -- all things that I was previously unfamiliar with, and for the most part, all things that I am no longer going to avoid.
Which is that part that I couldn't figure out on my machine. So to make everyone believe I know what I am doing, I got some snaps and and sewed them on the inside, and sewed buttons on the outside part of the button band.
Thanks for letting me share, and be sure to check out other awesome Tilly and the Buttons tutorials and patterns!
