All About Sports

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Thread It Thursday!!!!

Today’s post is about  tackling…..”The Sport’s Bra”. This little project was a great way for me to use up my knit scrap pieces all the while making something I’ve never made before.

Why didn’t I think of this sooner????

They are easy to make and don’t require much time at all.

The best part is…..when I hear my girl’s say…..thanks, mom….these are really cute. I can’t wait to wear them.

((Faint))

Lol…now that I’ve recovered from those kind words.

My reply was….thank you with the biggest smile!!!

They really know how to make my day.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, I greatly appreciate it.

Before you go….

I would love to know, what do you make with your scrap fabric pieces??

Happy Sewing & Until Next Time,

Sewloveable ☺

    • Thank you, Abi. It’s really easy. I used tank tops that I knew fit each of them well for the pattern. (I place my fabric and tank top on the fold). I measured down 5-5.5″ from the underarm (on the tank top) to get the length and just cut around the tank top adding no additional seam allowance…..except the length portion. Sew using a stretch stitch at shoulder and side seams. Hem the neck and arm holes using a 1/2″ seam allowance with a zig-zag stitch. Hem the bottom with a 1/2″ seam allowance with a zig-zag stitch, leaving a 1″ opening for your 1/4″ elastic. Insert the elastic and close the opening.
      If you decide to make them just let me know. I will be happy to help. I used to get rid of my scraps too…..until a more experienced sewer told me, that I could use them for small projects.
      Bunting flags…..great idea. Do you have a post on them???? You know I have to see…lol. Thanks, so much for stopping by!!

  1. These are so fabulous ! Bravo! Depending on the amount and size of my scrap stash, it varies what I’m inspired to sew. This post has inspired me to try knits! Thanks for asking~cheers

  2. It is a good idea. Nice job! I made a couple for my sister and I from the left over running shorts fabric I had. We ended up with a matching set – top and bottom. I want to try the Polly top next. It’s a free pattern with colour blocking so it uses smaller pieces than a regular top.

  3. I’ve been thinking about making a patchwork fabric skirt. Sort of like a quilt but much smaller. Haven’t implemented it yet but I love making plans.
