My first post on the Monthly Stitch! Hi guys!
I blog over at BakingMakingandCrafting.com, and have been following TMS for a while now, but hadn’t taken the plunge!
This month I have taken up the challenge, not once but twice.
I did some selfish stitching and made myself two Scout tees by Grainline studio, as pictured above. One in a white cotton broderie anglaise, and another in a fun seaside print polycotton. I did french seams on both, and I’m really pleased with how they came out. You can read a little more about them here.
My first double however, was a selfless stitch for my beloved Mr M. I had bought the Colette Negroni pattern way back in November, but hadn’t taken the plunge.
I think I was scared of it.
But I had reason to do some procrastination this week so made two shirts!
You can read a little more about them here. The one on the left was made using some fabric from my stash, a lightweight stripey cotton that I had leftover from making a dress for the Jane Austen Festival last year, and the one on the right is made from a paperclip print quilting weight cotton. The quilting weight was a little heavier to work with, but actually gives it a good shape, and Mr M has requested I make him some more already.
I chalk that one up as a win. Racking up the wife points!
