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.
Colorblock: a 2023 trend in children’s fashion
Colorblock comes to children’s fashion. This trend combines solid colors in blocks or different parts within a garment. Play with your favorite color combinations in a simple and modern way. Like these comfortable sweatshirts and backpacks made with our fleece fabrics for garments and canvas fabrics to sew fun backpacks.
