Weekend Workshop: 5 Easy DIY Sewing Projects with Jersey Knit Fabric

Attention, Jersey girls – wait, that didn’t sound the same out aloud. Attention, ladies and gents who are ready to try crafting with jersey knits… Yeah, that’s better.

It’s been raining like woah at our office this week. Seriously, a lot. Then we woke up over the weekend and it was raining some more. So we got to thinking, “What can we do to stay busy while we drink all this coffee?”

The answer is simple: gather up some of our favorite sewing tutorials that we wish had been crafted with our new Ground to Good™ knit fabrics. Nothing is quite so über-fly as creating opportunities for other people while making something cool, so let’s get down to business.
