Strike Off Projects are Here! 

GameStation Raglan TShirt toddler

You guyyyyyyyyyys!!! It’s time to be excited with me because I finally sewed up some of the strike offs for Round 1! (Is “strike offs” one word or two? Strikeoffs? Maybe it’s hyphenated… strike-offs? Whatever…)

As you can see, the listings are live on the website now. The pre-order is open until January 24th, so get your orders in!!

I’ve been on Pinterest hunting for simple and quick patterns to use on the strike offs. I’ve been needing a set of pattern weights, and I could also use some new covers for my decorative couch pillows. I will probably make an apron with one of the adult panels. I want to do a pair of capri leggings, but it’s winter so I won’t get much wear out of them for a few more months. Maybe I’ll do it anyway…

I will always be a busybody adding to my to-do list, but I got at least my first strike off projects done.  Check out this adorable Raglan t-shirt I made for My Mini-Me:GameStation Raglan TShirt toddlerI used a child size GameStation panel and some of the GameStation pattern fabric.

I also made a dolman-style top for myself and a basic t-shirt for Little Man. You can check those out in the gallery below. I’m still working on a raglan shirt for my husband, and then we’ll see what scraps I have left to work with. (That means there will probably be a part 2 to this post… stay tuned.)

I’m extra excited to see what you guys come up with using the round one Fabrics. Post all your fabulous creations in the Facebook group. Decisions, decisions…
