According to WordPress I started writing this post 2 months ago! Not sure were the time has gone……….. work, decorating, holidays, days out and a bit of sewing, not much clothes sewing as I am losing weight so hope I will need a smaller size soon.
Anyway on with the sewing stuff when I saw this Sweater Knit fabric on Fabworks Online, I thought if would be perfect for the Oslo Cardigan from Seamworks.
I didn’t bother to the add the cuffs, as the sleeves were already very long, or any fastening .
It really is long on me, but in the winter with jeans I think it will be fine. Not put off I made another version in a lovely black sweater knit again from Fabworks. This time I cut about 8 inches off the bottom of the pattern, but then I am only 5’2″.
I am so impressed with this fabric it is very fine and super soft but doesn’t crease, these photos were taken after it had been shoved into my bag all day at work.
As you can see the black version is a lot shorter in length!
I did manage to make myself a cozy quilt for the chilly evenings ahead
The fabric is mostly from the Makower Juicy range, all half price bargains from Cotswold Needlecraft apart from the owls, polka dots and plain white cotton which were all in my stash.
This is a disappearing four patch pattern which looks much more complicated than it really is.
I love the cute little owls!
