Hello again friends. It's Dana from MADE and I'm back to share a sewing tutorial and free pattern with you!
When I discovered that Spoonflower carried knit fabrics last

know, finding cute knit fabric prints in the store is pretty

• Print the 4-page pattern to standard 8 1/2 x 11 inch paper. There is a 1 square-inch measuring box on each page to make sure your pattern has printed to proper size. I recommend selecting the print option "actual size" (or something similar) for best results.
• Cut out all 4 pattern pieces (2 Back pieces, 2 Front pieces). Tape the 2 Front pieces together along the dotted lines. Do not overlap them, but butt them up right next to each other at the dotted lines and tape. Do the same for the Back pieces—match them up at the long dotted lines and tape.
• The pattern size is 6-12 months. If you have an older (or younger) child you can adjust the pattern by extending or reducing in a similar pattern shape. Use one of your child's current shirts to gauge how wide and how long the tank should be.
