I bought this fabric remnant on sale for a little over a dollar because I wanted to practice sewing knits before trying to make something to wear. I found the smallest knit pattern I had in my stash (a vintage bathing suit pattern) and got to work. It all came out pretty well except the bottom-the fabric got a little stretched while sewing it. Overall, though, it was much easier than I had expected.
A couple of weeks ago I took a two night pajama pants sewing class. Back in middle school we made flannel pants but I haven't made any sewn clothing since then. They weren't very hard to make but it was a good review of how to shorten/lengthen patterns (since I'm tall I always have to lengthen them), what to do with seams and how to fit stuff for your body. I have a couple of knit fabrics I bought on sale that i've been wanting to make a sundress out of but I think I still need some more practice until I'm ready for that.
I found this remnant at JoAnns on sale which matched our living room walls and couches perfectly so I bought it for a floor pillow. My husband likes sitting on the floor with one so I finally got around to making him one. The scrap was the perfect size- all I had to do was to trim the edges straight, sew around the edges, stuff (then stuff some more cuz he wanted it super thick) and see up the hole. If only all projects were this quick and easy.
