I Will Wear It In.... Public #2

Hello there,

Happy Sunday to you all!

Just a quick update on my I Will Wear It In...Public Challenge!


I have decided to really challenge myself with this sew along. It might end up as a epic fail, BUT I always sew with cotton, so have decided to sew with stretch fabric and make a hoodie. I found this burda pattern


Which I bought at Abakhan Fabrics, If you don't have a store near you you can pick it up here for just £4.42 BARGAIN I say!! I will be attempting to sew look B, it's a lovely version of a hoodie for us lady types!

Do you remember this fabric?!?!? I have decided it's not just a Pj fabric :)

Does anyone have any tips?? I am in need of them for sure ;)
I will also be using this for the first time... Never even knew it existed! I will be using my twin needle for the first time too! Lost of firsts for me... A little scary but I'm hoping really rewarding!!

  2. I love the hoodie you chose!! It will be so cute with the owls. I have never used the twin needle thing either. My machine does it, I'm just not brave enough to use it. Can't wait to hear how it goes for you.:)
