Project Sew It

My sewing goal for 2018 is making more handmade items for me. Items I would actually wear, not sew, hang in the closet and cut them up again to make something for the boys. Yep that happens most of the time! Luckily there's Celina's Project Sew It to give me some guidelines.
One item a month, that's managable, right? And I'm on a roll, I made it through tee January and sweater February. Next up, bottom March, that will be a tough one. But first, let's take a look at my tee and sweater.

I used my go to pattern for tees, the free Plantain tee bij Deer and Doe, a  nice shirt with a round neckline and options for short 3/4 and long sleeves. I decided on shorts sleeves and used up my last piece of fantasia blue jersey by Nosh Organics. The result is a nice basic tee I know I'll wear.

Next up my new sweater. I decided to give the Perri Pullover by Cali Faye Collection a second attempt. The first time I made it was ages ago and I used a fabric that was way to heavy for this pattern. You guessed it, I cut up that sweater again. For my second attempt  I used Nosh's Silmu knit. What a differnce the right fabric makes for a sewing project! I really love my new sweater.
