I’ve been doing a fair amount of sewing lately, so I’ve got a backlog of projects about which to blog! First up, baby clothes!
In my August Knitfix from Girl Charlee, I received some striped blue and white cotton jersey knit fabric, which didn’t really speak to me. But I really wanted to embrace all of the surprise fabrics I received, so, after thinking about the fabric for a while, I realized it may not be something I would wear, but it is perfect for some baby boy clothes!
Fortunately, I had just purchased the perfect pattern – the Brindille & Twig Raglan Tee. It comes in sizes OM to 6T. For my 9 month olds, I made the 12 month size.
It was an extremely quick and satisfying make – no fitting challenges with a knit top for a baby, and it comes together very quickly when made with a serger and a cover stitch machine. I made the pattern exactly as written.
This is my second time making a Brindille & Twig pattern, and I have loved both patterns. In fact, I enjoyed making this top so much, I made another one the very next day with a fabric in my stash from my May Knitfix, another striped cotton jersey knit – this one in blue and green.
Of course, with twins, I sort of feel obligated to make two of each item so both boys can have new clothes. 🙂 Both boys seemed delighted with their new tops!
I’m sure I’ll be making lots more of these tops in the future. I’m glad this pattern goes up to size 6T. While I didn’t love either of these fabrics when I originally received them, I’m totally in love with these shirts. I’m glad I took the challenge this month of embracing all of the fabrics I received!
