Making a Tank Top Pattern from a Onesie

Kicking off a new series called Clothes from Clothes.  I'll be teaching you how to take articles of clothing you already have and create a pattern from them so you can make more clothes that look and fit nicely.  I'm starting off simple with baby's clothes.  In this tutorial we will trace around a baby onesie and use it to create a tank top or tank dress pattern that can be made over and over again.  So easy, too.

In this video I'll show you the two rulers I love to use when I'm creating my own patterns- a straight quilting ruler and Curvey.

A local sewing/quilting friend of mine is the creator of Curvey and her husband makes each one right here in Florida. They have been so generous to offer one Curvey ruler up for a giveaway.  To enter for your chance to win this very handy ruler watch the video tutorial for all entry details.

  Hurry and enter because the giveaway ends tomorrow, Friday the 13th at 11:59pm.
