Looking for help!

 
Do you want to be a Fabricista?

 
Will you help us?!
We are looking for 3 Seamstresses/Seamsters to create a piece for a  blog post to feature our readers.
 
 
What is the post about?
We are doing a post about what to make with different types of knit.
Therefore we would like to see what our readers can do with knits.
 
 
How do I become a guest blogger?
Email us a little bio about you and a few examples of your recent work.
 (Especially any pictures of knit garments!)
If you are a blogger, please include a link to your blog.
 
 
 
What will I need?
Fabric Mart will send you a gift certificate to order your fabric for the project if you are chosen.
You will be able to chose which pattern you will use.
We will let you know what type of knit we would like you to sew with by email if selected.
 
 
 
What would I need to do?
All you need to do is sew up a garment by the deadline, photograph it, and write about how you made it and any tips you could pass on to fellow sewers about using that material.
 
 
 
Who will be chosen?
We are looking for 3 entries who have knowledge in sewing and have practiced sewing knits.
We will base our decision on workmanship, writing skills, and clear images.
(We prefer to see the garments modeled in the images.)

Infinity scarves are super easy and quick to make. They are called infinity scarves because they look like a continuous piece of fabric in a tubular form. You can make them in almost any type of knit. Knits come in so many different prints that you can make one for every outfit in your closet. 
Here is what you will need:  - Sewing machine - 1/2 yard of knit fabric (sweater knit, rayon knit, ITY knit, cotton knit, etc) Should also be 58/60" wide.  - Thread to match - Hand sewing needle
1) Fold the 1/2 yard piece of knit in half the long way. Pin along the entire long edge. 

2) Using a thin zig-zag stitch (almost straight stitch), stitch the long edge. I pull slightly on the front and back of the fabric as it goes through the sewing machine so that when the scarf is finished, it can b…

Made by a Fabricista: Classic Ponte Knit Pieces!

Happy Saturday All!
I am so over this heat here in South Florida!  The humidity and the high temperature feels like 100+ degrees each day.  I can't wait for Fall so that I can truly enjoy the cooler temperatures.
Whenever Fabric Mart has designer ponte knit fabric in stock and on sale, I grab as many yards as I am allowed to.  I absolutely love sewing with ponte knit versus other knits as the stability and structure are perfect for my personal taste (See my previous Fabric Mart post using ponte knit here and here).
