Howdy howdy, fabric lovers!
What’s your favorite fabric to sew with? I personally love knit fabric, it’s comfy, soft, stretchy and it goes well with everything. As you all know we have a huge variety of knit fabrics. Actually, we have 4 prints for each collection plus a wide range of solids and round elements. Can you believe how many we have?! It’s incredible!
Every time I get to the studio I want to sew at least one garment with each print ( I love them all). If you have worked with our fabric before you can really feel the difference, but our knit fabrics are just out of this world and they work perfectly for summer clothes because they are light weight so they will keep you fresh all day long!
Have you ever thought of all the things you can sew with knit fabric? Well, just in case you haven’t in the picture below you will see some of the things we have made here at the studio.
But the fun doesn’t end there! You can still sew lots of different things, especially with knit scraps. For example: beanies, headbands, fabric flowers, a strap for your camera, and much more! You can check out our AGF Knit fabric lookbook, filled with tons of project ideas and link to patterns for some sewing inspiration.
For those of you that sometimes feel intimidated by sewing with knit fabric, here is a video one of our designers, Dana Willard made. She explains the basics of sewing with knits! Also, she will give you some tips on how to choose the right stitch for your project.
I hope you're inspired by AGF knits! Feel free to share your favorite things about sewing with knits and any tips you may have. :)
Happy knit sewing!
