Sewing is therapy for me. I hoard fabric, patterns, notions, and spend more time shopping for fabric than I care to admit...

The First Challenge! Oh Yikes!

So here we go with the Fabric Mart sewing challenge I was telling you about in the not so distant past!  Fun, exciting, but also down right terrifying!  You can read about the rules and such here.

I love to embellish fabrics and such but it is tough for me to know how much, know what I mean?

We are using the Scout Woven Tee as our base from Grainline studios.  What a blank canvas to start with!!!

It's simplicity is what makes this top so very popular in the sewing community as the fabric is what will make this wardrobe basic shine!

Watch for my final product on Tuesday when it is due!!!

Happy Sewing!


  1. Good luck. Did you have to use that particular pattern or could you use any basic woven top pattern because there are lots of similar ones out there. Anyway that is a great challenge I will look forward to seeing everyone's results -they could end up being so different and inspire us all in how to make the most of our basic patterns.

    1. Hi Janine,
      We have to use the Scout and yes, I have been searching for inspirations and I have seen so many variations! I am finding that I need to be much more creative when I put garments together, there are so many wonderful possibilities!

  2. Can't wait to see your new scout tee. I love that pattern.. I have made it several times..

    1. I just hope I an do something unique and somewhat exciting with it! Yikes!!!
