sewing: vintage blue denim morgan jeans "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

This post is written by Heidi of Handmade Frenzy.

Happy FRI-YAY!! Hello, Gnats readers! I am super pumped to be here today. And it is because

I MADE JEANS!! These vintage blue denim Morgan jeans to be exact.

I have been putting off jeans making for over a year. For whatever reason, they intimidated me to no end. I know Im not alone in this, so Im here to offer you all encouragement!

I would not put jeans making into a beginner category, but if you have decent knowledge of your sewing machine and arent afraid to tackle a little fit tweaking, you can make jeans with confidence! Also, there are endless jeans making resources available to you, all over the web. (Closet Case 1,2, Jeans Sew-a-longs 1,2, Craftsy)

Firstly, I will dive into the pattern details. I chose to make the Morgan Jeans pattern with my Stretch Denim 12 oz in Vintage Blue. The Morgan Jeans pattern is for non-stretch denim. But the denim I used from the shop only has 5% stretch, so it was perfect (PERFECT), for this project.

The Morgan Jeans are a boyfriend fit with a slim thigh and fitted hips. They feature a mid-rise and either a cropped or full leg length.

For those interested in fitting details. I measure pretty straight into the size 8 on the pattern size chart. I decided to...

Mini Herringbone Scarf in Understory "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

As its name so plainly suggests, a herringbone pattern mimics the bones of a fish such as, well, a herring. Were not so sure that a fish skeleton was our inspiration here, so much as a parqueted French oak floor or an English tweed suit, but whatever herringbone makes you think of, it is undoubtedly a beautiful stitch!

A little bit bigger than our original version, this one also gets a yarn update. We knit it up in our unspeakably soft Understory, a baby alpaca, baby yak and silk blend, here in the rich and juicy color Ripe Plum. It also has new selvage stitches, as well as an accompanying all-new Mini Herringbone video tutorial that shows you how its done!

Seeing how the herringbone pattern take shape, unfold, and blossom is a great knitting thrill. Its a super interesting stitch that is rather easy to learn and fun to knit forever. Its a bit like the Mini Herringbone Scarf itself: a classic that will never, ever go out of style.

Mini Herringbone "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

This is a beautiful stitch pattern with an all-over texture that alludes to a classic herringbone tweed. It involves working every other stitch twice, perhaps a complicated sounding maneuver, but not so hard once you get the hang of it!

We used it for our Mini Herringbone Scarf in Understory. Get the free pattern to try it out yourself!

Bunny & Carrot Pattern in the "testing labs" "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

First: Thank you for responding to my call for testers for the Bunny & Carrot pattern. The call for testers is now closed. I am no longer accepting responses.

That said, you guys are the best.

I was floored by the number of offers to test this pattern. There were so many fun stories to read in your background bios - the experiences you've had sewing, the kinds of projects under your belts, the work you do in the professional world that utilizes your sewing skills and talents. It was very hard to choose just four. I eventually picked six who represented a wide variety of skill levels and experiences which fit the target users of this sewing pattern. Some have more years of sewing experience than I have years of life, and some are just starting out in stuffedtoydom. Some have been pattern testers in the past and some haven't. Some are self-declared perfectionists and some love the journey even more than the destination.

I am very excited to have the pattern in their hands (imagine how much more excited I am to have it ultimately in yours!). But by selecting them, I was unable to select you, and I wish I could've have, because boy, do you guys have serious skills. Thank you for sharing photos of your projects, for your interest in the pattern, and for your willingness to put nose to grindstone (or presser foot) for me. Pattern-testing is not glamorous in the way that pattern-reviewing is. It is hard work, and enjoyable though it may also be, for the next week or so, these ladies will have to think like target users and be prescriptive in their sewing.

I am saving the contact details of all who submitted their names for consideration, however. Because there will be more ikatbag patterns in the future and maybe some of you would be perfect to test those and I wouldn't have to write an entire "recruitment" post like the last one. I could just ask one of you guys!

But that would be Other Patterns for Other Times. I also want to acknowledge your support in this pattern. So: anyone who'd responded to my call for testers before this post went live gets a discount on the Bunny & Carrot pattern when it's available for sale (...

A 1900s-1910s tricorne revival hat "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

The Research:

About this time last year I became slightly obsessed (as I do) with the early 20th century bicorne and tricorn hat revival:

Woman in a tricorn hat, ca 1907 (probably a fashion model)

The tricorne revival was part of the overall 18th century revival that happened at the end of the 19th century, and flowed into an Empire revival in the late 1900s and early 1910s.
