Color Blocking by Feather’s Flights and I Still Love You// Stretch Yourself

This series is sponsored by Baby Lock.  For over 40 years, Baby Lock has been dedicated to the love of sewing by creating machines for sewing, embroidery, quilting and serging – all with ease-of-use, high quality and a touch of elegance.

Last week Miriam and I overloaded you with information and resources to help you learn to sew with knit fabric. This week, we are so excited to have a group of guest bloggers adding some additional tutorials to give you even more ideas of the possibilites with knits! Every day this week, we will share a theme and feature two of the bloggers we invited to join Stretch Yourself. They have each prepared a full tutorial for you, and posted it on their blogs. Enjoy the blog hop!

The Stretch Yourself Guest Blogger Theme for today is: Color Blocking

Check out this awesome color blocked cardigan made by Heather at Feather’s Flights. I am a total cardigan girl (in lieu of a blazer girl) and I just love the color combination of pink and navy! Head over to Feather’s Flights today to learn how to make one for yourself!Colorblocked skirt by Melissa Esplin - One Little Minute Blog - Stretch Yourself

Melissa from I Still Love You picked up on the gold-tipped trend of the season and used it as inspiration for her super rad gold-tipped wiggle skirt. She laughed a little when she told me the skirt is “business in the front, and party in the back!” I can’t wait to see her tutorial today on her blog.
