7 sewing patterns to sew back-to-school staples

Do you want to sew comfortable clothes for kids? Like T-shirts, sweatshirts, or pants. We recommend jersey knit fabrics or fleece. Both T-shirt and jersey fabrics, like soft French terry or fleece, are soft, warm and elastic fabrics. This is really important so that your little ones feel comfortable and can play without the fabric pulling. Sewing with elastic fabrics may seem complicated, but contrary to popular belief, it’s quite easy, and the result is spectacular.
