Remember the Bookworm Button Up I made for my youngest? Well, I sewed up another, only this time I made it in super soft, thick, flannel and lined it in fleece!
Talk about cozy!! She hasn’t wanted to take it off. It has gotten quite cold here, suddenly, and all we feel like wearing is fleece and flannel which is great because that is all I feel like sewing!
It was much like a puzzle figuring out how to line it with fleece, while keeping all the seams neat and enclosed. Not too difficult though, once I figured it out.
She has been wearing it with her thumb through the hole above the cuff. It’s like a built in fingerless glove.
This pattern is easy to follow and easy to customize!
I added a little lace to the back to fancy it up a bit.
I tried my best to pattern match, but this flannel made my eyes cross. Sometimes, I find I just need to not make myself crazy. In the end, she will love it anyway. I mean, what’s not to love about cozy fabric, right?
We’ve already lost power twice, this season, so our wood stove is getting a workout. Carrying in firewood is her favorite. Having a warm shirt to do it in…even better!
What have YOU made today?
