Happy Valentine!

Happy Valentine, everyone! Hug your partners, your family and your kids…. this is the day for it.

And in case you’re in the mood to make some cool border shirts like ours, have a look at my little step by step photo guide. The patterns are  available here


Step 1) When folding the  fabric, make sure that the stripes match up perfectly.  

 

 

 

 

 

Step 2) When matching the pattern pieces, make sure that you match up the bottom hemline.



 

 

Step 3) When you pin the fabric pieces together, take your time and match the stripes.

 

 

 

 

 

When stripes are matching, the whole shirt looks way better and proves that you have put all your effort in it.

 

 

 

 

 

I recommend to use the overlock machine to sew this knit fabric. But border knits are usually not too stretchy. So you can also use the normal 3mm straight stitch of your sewing machine.
