Today we bring you our round up of 20 things to sew with knit fabric. As we mentioned yesterday, we are new to sewing with knits, and we are so excited to see what our knit fabric contestants sew up! We do know that knit fabric is mainly used for apparel sewing, so that’s what the majority of our round up showcases.
Boy’s Hardware Hoodie
Jess from Gracious Threads made this hardware hoodie for her Embellish is for BOYS! series. We love how comfortable knit fabric is for boys!
Seafarer Top & Maxi Skirt
Abby from Sew Much Ado made a skirt and top both from knit fabric with incredible speed one day. Read her story for more details, but that’s one thing we’re learning about knits…they’re fast!
Becca sewed up this sweet little Heidi & Finn ballet sweater over at Pattern Revolution. It kind of reminds me of the knit shrug Becca made herself during (Hint of) Vintage week for Challenge Create: Adult Edition!
Penelope Peplum Dresses
Jen over at iCandy Handmade actually made two versions of the Penelope Peplum Dress. That’s the way we feel about our limited experience with knits…we just want to sew some more!
Speaking of knit dresses, we just had to include this little sweetie from Heidi of Elegance and Elephants! We know how much little girls like to wear knit dresses!
Headband with Flowers
Over at Craftsy, Heather from The Sewing Loft, teaches a class on how to sew up these adorable headbands from, you guessed it; knit fabric! Another thing we’re learning about knit fabric is that you don’t throw away all the little leftover pieces because they are so nice for using for things like this headband!
Would you believe that only a very short time ago, we didn’t know that swim suit material falls into the category of knit fabric? Well, our very own talented Stacy from The Land of K.A. sewed up this one for her daughter!
Knit Fabric Flowers
Jezzica made these very awesome flowers from knit fabric. Also, over at Jezzicas Projects, you can see how she makes knit fabric into a rug!
Easy Baby Skirts
Delia, from Delia Creates, made a baby skirt from knit fabric that was formerly a t-shirt! Since it was so easy, she made 6 of them!
Now who doesn’t like to sleep in knit fabric? Rachel, over at Once Upon A Sewing Machine, whipped up some pajamas for her kids from knit fabric.
Jessica made a baby wrap from knit fabric over at Running With Scissors. This project may just be my next sewing adventure! I love baby wearing, and so does my baby!
Toddler Maxi Skirt
Nat, from My Sister’s Suitcase, made an adorable maxi skirt for her toddler. She started with knit fabric that was formerly a shirt also, which is a very common place for seamstresses to find knit fabric!
Vanessa from the amazing V and Co. made this shag pillow from knit fabric. I want one…or three!
Knit Bow Top
Shauna, of Shwin & Shwin does so many things with knit fabric it was hard to pick just one to show you! But this pretty little Knit Bow Top was so cute (or was it the model?) that we couldn’t resist!
Leanna, from Elle Apparel, used a sequin knit fabric to create this slouchy sequin top. A perfect marriage of casual and fancy!
Knit Maxi Dress
This maxi dress uses both a knit shirt and knit fabric. Ashley from Make It and Love It has the tutorial.
Quilt with Knit Fabric Backing
We did find a quilt over at Mommy By Day Crafter By Night which Ashley used knit fabric for the backing. Talk about a cozy quilt for a baby!
Beachy Boatneck Sunki Dress
Raphaëlle made the cutest combination of two dress patterns and two different knit fabrics to create this Beachy Boatneck Sunki Dress. Absolutely adorable! Read more over at Duex Souriceaux.
Knit Skirt with Attached Shorts
Autumn and her daughter win the cutest knit skirt award. They also win the biggest brown eyes award! And did you see the award they receive during our first annual Spring Skirt Awards? There’s always something award worthy going on over at It’s Always Autumn!
Melissa from Melly Sews, did the opposite of many knit fabric users; she used knit fabric to create a man’s t-shirt rather than use a man’s t-shirt as a source of knit fabric! Go Melly go!
