Halloween Project

Awhile ago, I  purchased this jersey fabric and have been finding all kinds of projects for it. 

I first made this simple T-shirt.  This is New Look 6787.  It's a long T, so it appears to look more like a dress, but it was for my very tall daughter, Katie.

This is a wonderful project for the new sewist who would like to try their hand at a "stretchy" fabric.  Sewing with 2-way or 4-way stretch fabric can be done easily with a serger.  If you don't have a serger, you can use a double needle in your regular sewing machine.  Choose a needle that is labeled as "stretch".  It will have a balled point so it can slip through the fibers without puncturing them.

Then, I decided they'd make some real cute Baby Spankies for the Studios.  These are 12 mo size.  Just in time for Halloween.
