Ice Cream Tees

              I am a big believer that if you are going to make something homemade, it better be cheap--otherwise, save your money and just go buy it (in most cases).  When I went to Joann's a few months ago, I could not believe how expensive their fabric is--most of the knits are $12.99 a yard (what is this--Japan???)

So, I found some bargain knit fabric online for $3 a yard and had to get some to support the fact that it was so dang cheap (Thank you, Girl Charlee Fabrics!).  And because it had cute ice cream cones on it, I used that fabric right up to make me and my little girlie some matching tees:

My cute girl--she likes her shirt, and it fits perfectly!
Coco's Tee is the Made by Rae Flashback Tee Pattern

Coco took this pic :)  For my shirt, I used the Sewaholic Renfrew Pattern, which I have seen made up by pretty much every sewing blog in the universe.  Cute--but I think it is probably going to be a pajama shirt!


I love sewing for my little Coco! She is not too picky and very appreciative!

   This year, I have a long list of sewing goals--and one of them is to learn something new every time I sew, which is easy--because I am definitely a beginning sewer!

So for this project, I learned:
   a.) how to install and sew with a walking foot.  It is awesome and makes sewing with knits way easier!
   b.) yet again to stop sewing knits until I get a serger.  Sergers make quick work and strong seams.  You can do it with a regular sewing machine, but sergers are amazing. Now where can I find one for super super cheap?
   c.) Poor Cash really wants something sewn for him.  Hmmm...

Love the fabric! If you have some left over you could make a small clutch purse or coin purse!
