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.
For the Sophisticate with Skills
This pleated dress by @merrickart makes a comfortable everyday fabric look perfectly posh.
Calling The Children at Heart
Ok, these soft balloon animals by Little Inspiration are just about the cutest damn thing we’ve ever seen. Someone please make these for our office – thanks.
Sleek (and So Freakin Simple) Décor
We know this looks like some knotting only possible with the help of an Eagle Scout knotting. Trust us – you got this one via eHow.
If You’re the Craftiest Mom, Aunt, or Friend Anywhere
Wanna out-gift the competition at the next baby shower on your calendar? Yeah, us too. This headband by Kelli Murray puts a glam spin on classic gray.
Skill Level: Bow Down
This necklace by Lebenslustiger begins with I-Cord (commonly known as Tee Yarn), which you can easily craft yourself. Then use your crochet skills to whip up this necklace in the perfect length.
