Here are some things you can turn your scraps in to, or even stuff your scraps in to! Check out the roundup and then let me know if I’ve missed something or if you have a favourite way to scrapbust that isn’t covered here!
Undies can be a great use for knit fabrics! Depending on your size (or the preferred size of your undies), you might be able to more easily use knit fabric scraps for your undies. I’ve been busting scraps with the Muna and Broad Kapunda Undies (View B), but if those aren’t your size (or you like a lower-cut brief) you can check out this Undies roundup from the Love To Sew Podcast!
I’ve been a bit obsessed with these boiled wool cushion covers, and I’m sure I have enough extra bits of boiled wool in my scrap stash to make myself a few throw cushion covers.
Welcome to the Sunday plus-size sewing pattern roundup! Every week, I share 4 plus-size sewing patterns that are available up to at least a 50″ bust and hip. I try to keep up-to-date with new patterns, but also with lesser-known companies.
The Kapunda Undies from Leila and me at Muna and Broad is available up to a 71.5″ hip, but if that’s too small for you then we will grade this pattern up for you at no extra cost.
These vintage undies are 15% off until the 15th of November by signing up to the M&Bemail newsletter
Number 2, Te Aro Dress and Top
The Te Aro Dress and Top from Scroop Patterns is available up to a 56″ bust and 60″ hip and comes with 3 different ‘size packs’, the largest being Size 44-56.
Designed for midweight knits, View A is a long sleeve dress with an optional hood, View B is a short-sleeve top with a high-low hem and View C is a dress with high low hem and dramatic sleeves.
Number 3, Krissa Crop
The Krissa Crop from Amy Nicole Studio is a free pattern which is available up to a 56.5” bust
Number 4, Staley Top
The Staley Top from Elbe Textiles is available up to a 56.3″ hip. This pattern for knit fabrics come with two views: View A is a cropped jumper with a split hem detail and View B is a semi fitted t-shirt with a scooped neckline and a curved hem.
I try to only share pattern makers who release all their patterns in their entire size range- I don’t want to support companies who are further marginalising fat bodies, or treating us like an afterthought! I’d love to hear your suggestions!
Since it still feels like March, but it’s actually almost November, I wondered if it might be time to share the pattern roundups I’ve put together on the blog during the past wee-while. Whether you’re after free plus-size sewing pattern PDFs, free eco sewing pattern PDFs or free Christmas gift sewing ideas, I’ve probably got you sorted!
