Today I’m writing over at UpCraftClub! Check out my first post over there where I’m sharing a way to incorporate mixed prints into your next Lane Raglan tee.
I’ve been dreaming up a pair of fall/winter pajamas made from this great peach pony thermal knit fabric, but the store that I bought it from was going out of business, so I had limited yardage to play with. After sorting through my scraps, I found some great coordinating fabrics. With a little pattern hacking, I combined everything into a very cozy pair of pajamas which, no doubt will serve me well when it stops being a million degrees outside. You can read all about my process and see my tutorial for this particular pattern hack here.

I love mixed prints, and your ponies are so cute. The best part of mixing fabrics and prints for me is the opportunity to use a favorite bit from my remnant stash which always makes me feel so virtuous.
Thanks! I couldn’t pass up the ponies. Virtuous indeed! Mostly, I love it when you can get rid of little bits of this and that that have been hanging around for years and are otherwise too small to use for anything.
Me too, so nice to lighten the fabric load
I love your bold print mixing! So much fun!
Thanks! It was fun to find things in my stash that went together so well.
