Leftover fabric – Blue love

By Youanna

Hi again friends,

Did I not tell you yesterday that I was very active on the sewing machine but not so much online? Here is another proof of that: a new long sleeve winter top, made from some leftover Ponte di Roma knit. If you remember from my previous post, I mentioned that I love the tunic, and I was already making that pattern using some other colours, more exactly blue. After I cut the fabric for the blue tunic, there was leftover fabric to use, so I grabbed a simple T pattern from one of my Ottobre magazines, cut the fabric, and I started sewing both tops together. Miss Sporty Seamstress is sewing two projects at a time! :)  But only one of them got finished first, as life gets in the way all the time.

Notice on the last picture I have also knitted a new cotton ribbon scarf, a blue one! I must have got “the blues” or something…

Here is a picture showing how I made the sleeve out of two pieces of fabric. I had to improvise a bit for a full long sleeve, using only scraps from my other project: a blue “bat wing” tunic.

    Wow, I love this fabric (and top)! And how smart of you to reuse every scrap!
