Boy was I trilled when I saw the red (and green) apple knit that Stephanie of Swoodson Says sent as part of the Stitch Swap in which Bloggers exchanged one yard of fabric and the challenge was to create something using the yard you received. While we are still in the throes of summer the apple print just screamed themes like “harvest” and “back to school” to me so I was inspired to pair it with a plaid print that nods to colder times that I’m sure will be here before I know it!
Besides making the awesome Adventure Tee from the recent Pattern Anthology collection, I had plenty of leftovers to also create a coordinating Explorer Hoodie also from the same collection. Both patterns are quick sews (made them both with two of my hours during Kids Clothes Week) and has plenty of options to customize.
Thank you so much Stephanie for sending such an inspiring fabric to work with! Today is the last day of the Stitch Swap tour so be sure to check out all the fantastic creations made by the other bloggers on the tour. I sent fabric to Emily of Tangible Pursuits who is also posting today and I can not wait to see what she makes!
