- Blossom Pink Bamboo Jersey - This luscious bamboo jersey is smooth as silk, naturally cool to the touch, and simply put, feels amazing against your skin. The slightly muted, blossom pink, a blush tone like cherry blossoms and roses, is fresh and youthful, and will be an instant mood boost in your wardrobe. Lightweight yet opaque, with a great 4-way stretch, this fabric will be your new go-to T-shirt staple!
- Cactus Palm Print Ecovero Jersey - This printed jersey is truly unique! Featuring palm fronds of different green shades that evoke tropical islands and hot, sunny days, the fabric has a slight sheen from the ecovero, a semi-fluid drape, and a soft, dry hand. A bold print for a bold t-shirt – who could ask for anything more?
Also in this box: Matching thread, clear elastic, a twin needle, and a sewing machine needle.
I've been wanting to start making my own clothes again, after a long hiatus. This kit was the perfect thing for me to regain my confidence in my sewing machine and server! The pattern is a perfect t shirt, I didn't make a muslin, just picked my size and cut. The fabric is great if a little thin, and the thread is a perfect color match. It was nice having the right needle and the label and little treat were a nice surprise! Really happy with how my t shirt turned out and already bought fabric to make several more!
