In case you missed it， here’；s a round up of the posts shared…； I’；ve also got a fantastic giveaway for you if you’；d like to try out sewing with knits yourself—； just keep reading!
First up was a primer into the types of knit fabrics， that way you’；d know what to shop for when planning your projects.
Next we talked about HOW to go about sewing with knit fabrics.
I then shared a tutorial for this easy t-shirt dress…；which would make a perfect little summer playdress.
In an attempt to reuse some of my favorite kids t-shirtspersonalized new baby gifts， I shared with you how to upcycle t-shirts into a recieving blanket.
Although it was technically not “；sewing”； with knits， I did show you how to custom print your own design on knit fabrics with this freezer paper stencil project.
Next I told you about one of my favorite travel accessories， and showed you how to make one yourself.
and lastly， I shared a dress that I made for my teenage daughter.

This step by step will walk you through the super easy process of making a tote bag. This particular variation is a pretty heavy duty one, so feel free to adjust a bit if you don't need one that will carry such a heavy load. You will need: - Sewing machine. The walking foot machine at any Techshop location is a great bet, but any machine will do.- Canvas or some similar woven fabric. Canvas is cheap and pretty tough so that was my choice. My bottom is made of waxed canvas to make it a bit water proof and extra rugged, but we will cross that bridge when we get to it. - Webbing, enough to go up both sides, and make the handles at the very least. You can figure this by multiplying the height of your bag by 4 and adding 2-4 ft depending on how big you want the handles and if you want to wrap the webbing all the way under the bag (extra reinforcement). This is a pretty basic project so I would say give yourself an hour and half to two hours tops.Here we go!!
Unrefined and natural are the two best words to describe a rustic interior and furthermore you don't have to live in the country to adopt the look and style for your home. The use of natural materials crops up once again with wood being a principal player along with exposed stone work. This interior design style also takes us back to our roots and the days when life was by no means easy but it didn't have the trappings and pressure of today's fast paced and hectic lifestyles.
