Just a little heads up that I'm taking a little break from sewing for a few weeks. I'm a weekend sewer and my June weekends are filling up fast. Last weekend I went home to visit family and host a baby shower. I will be on vacation for the next two weekends (BEEEEEEEACH) and then have some family and friends visiting after that. I also have some sewing to do for some new bambinos coming soon and I don't know if bibs and boppy covers are blog material. There is a very small possibility that I'll finish up my mineral linen scout before this weekend, but who knows?
So I MIGHT snag some photos of some newly made items at the beach and post about them, but other than that there will be no newly sewn items!
But, armed with what I learned throughout MMM, I have gone on a bit of a fabric shopping spree. I didn't buy any fabric all month so I splurged a little (a lot) and got my queue back in shape.
First, knits. The single most worn item last month was my blue stripe jersey Scout tee. It is absolutely on its last legs, so I could definitely use a few more knit tees. I bought some of these Robert Kaufman knits to make tees and possibly a pair of lounge shorts. I'm a big fan of the little hits of color in the speckles.
I also have no me made pants. After seriously considering pulling the trigger on a $60 pair of sweatpants, I realized I'm obsessed with MeUndies fabric and decided to get some of my own. No picture, because it's black, but I'm going to make my first ever pair of pants. Lounge pants, sure. But pants, nonetheless!
Another item that got worn a LOT last month, even if it wasn't tracked, was my heart print Linden sweatshirt. I also wore my blue one quite a bit. These are great layering pieces for home or my casual office and I need a couple more. I got this brick red terry and some coordinating ribbing for my next version.
This tissue knit may also be a Linden, may be a Lark, or may be the upcoming Penny raglan from Grainline. But it's $3 a yard and it's my favorite color, so it's going to be something. The bottom fabric is one I saw on a MMM instagram post and wanted immediately. It's a quilting cotton I think, and will be a Scout or a tank top.
And of course, if I learned anything it's that money spent on Nani Iro fabric is never wasted. especially not floral Nani Iro. ESPECIALLY not colorful, floral Nani Iro! So I picked out 4 prints (some old) to get and make Scouts (Links for clockwise: 1, 2, 3 and 4). If I have a summer uniform, it's linen shorts and a Scout. And I'm excited to expand my double gauze Scout collection with these.
Whew! That's a lot. But I'm a stasher, and my stash has been dwindling since I bought my new machine a couple of months ago, so it was time to replenish. I think I'm set for a while!
