My day starts with: “My son jumping on me to get out of bed (he’s the best alarm clock.) I get my son ready for school and then head off to the studio. If I’m lucky I try to hit the gym, but as all working moms know, making time for yourself is often difficult.”
Who doesn't love a good pair of leggings? They're the perfect garment for layering, relaxing and getting active! We all have a favorite pair that fits better than all the rest. Today, Emma Jeffery, creative sewist + maker behind Hello Beautiful, visits the blog to share how she replicated her daughter's favorite pair of leggings using a funky design printed on Sport Lycra!
Leggings are a wardrobe staple for my daughter–pulling on and off with no buttons, zippers or other annoying closures. They are every girls’ must-have and with Spoonflower’s new Sport Lycra fabric, I can sew up some extra fun pairs for her dance/play/sports activities. These leggings will take about 30 mins to make and you don’t need a pattern. All you need is a pair of existing leggings that you like the fit of, and you can make these using the same method, for adults and children alike.
What’s adorable, uses only a quarter yard of fabric, and sews up in under an hour? These knit baby leggings! We can’t get over them. These things are as easy to make as they are cute (and they’re really cute). Join Spoonflower friend and contributor Anda Corrie as she walks you through these DIY knit leggings, and bookmark this page–you’ll definitely want to make more than one pair.
