Sewing a Knit Neckband, plus a Giveaway!

Guess what! Today we have a video tutorial *and* a fabric giveaway! Happy Friday! But first a little background...

If you've been around to see our CKC boy patterns for long, you will probably recognize this handsome face: 


And you probably have also noticed the AMAZING fabric that his mom always seems to score for him. Talk about a lucky kid! (And his brother too.) I had to find out where she got this awesome Jack fabric so I could get my hands on some!



Fast forward a week later, and these gorgeous knits arrived on my doorstep!  They're not only super cute, but the quality is fantastic. (I'm really picky.) I ordered these from an online group called Making Madie Knit Prints. She has super cute prints available for pre-order  (and some for retail) and I must say, they are quite addicting. I already have another shipment on its way to my house!

I couldn't wait to cut into my striped Jack fabric and I asked what you, our readers, would like to see on the blog using knit.  Several of you asked for a video showing how to attach a neckband evenly, and that just happens to be one of my favorite parts to do. Woohoo!  So let's take a look at the video I lovingly made just for YOU, and then afterwards we have a *GIVEAWAY* from Making Madie Knit Prints!

There, wasn't that fun?  I know the video was a bit blurry -- my camera was struggling.

 Here is the finished Liam's:



Love it!  And even better:


A happy kiddo! Greg loves his new Liam's shirt!  And now his little brother wants one too. No problem because I still have plenty left. My daughter will probably get a cute headband as well.  

So... Are you ready for the giveaway?
