Lena's New T-shirt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? My dog Lena is gorgeous! Also, this is the first project I made after I took the class and I'm proud of the improvement. I think I need to practice some more, but this T-shirt is way better than the first one I made for Lena. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Meg recommends using a walking foot for sewing with knits. I never thought of that. I recently purchased a walking foot for my new Brother Innov'is 40 sewing machine, thinking I might use it to learn to quilt but hadn't opened the package yet. Using the walking foot made a HUGE difference, so consider getting one if you don't already have it.

What you will need

  • My old T-shirt that's four sizes too large now that I've l lost over 40 pounds.
