Father's Day Contest Winner!

Alright Fabricworms! I know a lot of you have been curious to find out who won the Fabricworm Father's Day contest. We had a lot of great submissions, which made it incredibly difficult to choose a winner. Thanks so much to everyone who shared their beautiful projects with us. It was wonderful to see how the fabrics we provide inspire you all.

Soooo....who won? Our winner is Cari G., who has this to say about her project:

"Hi guys I'm really excited I won that contest. I've never entered a sewing contest before.  My husband picked out and bought the fabric, he really liked it and so did I. I used a vintage shirt pattern, about 10 yards of piping and about 10 hours of time. Piping takes forever!!  Lol.  I also made myself a matching dress using the washi pattern. Definitely going to make some more clothes with the winning fabrics. Thank you so much."





 Congrats Cari! Thanks so much for sharing!

Make sure you check out the other designs they are so cute!

about a yard of knit fabric
double needle, thread, elastic thread for shirring

Turn right side out, then using a ruler and disappearing marker, mark a line across the front and back of your top-about 3-4" below the armscye.

Switch your bobbin thread to elastic thread for the shirring section. Hand wind it on the bobbin, and don't stretch it while you do so! Load the bobbin as usual and set your stitch length longer than normal.
Sew around the top, following the line and back stitching at start and finish. Sew an additional 2-4 lines, depending on how many you want. Make sure to line them up 1/4" away from the center stitch, and so on.

Cuffs: sew the short ends right side together, then press.

Press!

Hem the bottom up 1/2"and you are done!
