Sewing With Knits

Recently  Meg McElwee of Sew Liberated offered her craftsy course for half price!  How could I say no to that; 4 patterns (already worth the price) plus hours of Meg in an on-line course that I can access any time!  I was sold.
Well, what do you know...that sweet girl of mine sat down the other night and watched Meg explain how to make the fleece hoodie (first pattern in the set) and then got to work.
 We had picked up the fabric (a velvety soft pink) recently as I was going to attempt the hoodie for her...clearly I wasn't needed.

I know I could have posted 2 pictures and you would have gotten the idea, but I am so proud of this little lady of mine!  She truly did an amazing job don't ya think?  I'm thinking I'll go get some more fabric and see if she'll make me one.  I can't recommend Meg's class enough if you are at all hesitant with sewing knits.  Her directions are clear and her teaching style is fun and relaxed.  I'm thinking Molly will be making something else soon, and if I can get close to the sewing machine I'll take my turn (really wanting to make the dress looks soooo comfy) so we will be sure to keep you posted.


  1. That's AWESOME! She is SO talented!!!

  2. Way to go molly! It looks amazing!

  3. Molly did an amazing job and really, pink is her color.
    Now, doesn't she want a vacation in the south so she can teach me? :)

  4. Awesome! I was so tempted to take the course and now I wish that I would have!

  5. wow amazing!! I hope to instill the love of sewing my girls :) I hemmed and hawed about buying that craftsy course and seeing this inspired me to do it! I want to make that maxi dress.....

  6. Beautiful and quite talented in sewing! Love the bright color and all of the fun poses!!

  7. Molly, will you make me one?

  8. That looks fantastic! I signed up for the course as well, but I haven't gotten startet yet. I'm still unpacking my sewing room, so it might be a while… xo
