This week I made some leggings for Miss M. I used a stripey fabric I found at a local store, and some leftover jersey knit from the Ice Cream Dress.
I followed this baby tights tutorial, and it really was as easy as it looks. Only difference is that I cut off the feet of one pair to make leggings.
I’ve learned a few things about working with knits recently. First, they make special needles for stretchy fabrics! Who knew? And second, there is a special stitch for working with them – looks kind of like a zigzag, but a little slopier. I hadn’t clued in to what it was for.
FYI: Leggings are good for jumping.
I’ve also been working on my quilt, so hopefully I’ll have some in progress photos of that soon too.
