what to make with it: hello knit by cotton and steel

Hello is Cotton + Steel’s first collaborative knit collection, a group of kids-centric designs. It’s all printed on their newest substrate, a soft and stretchy 95/5 cotton/spandex jersey perfect for sewing a variety of apparel and baby items. There are many different prints. The fabric collection was designed with kids’ clothes in mind, so the fabrics work perfectly with Oliver + S knit sewing patterns.

They are such fun fabrics for you all to get excited about. Here are some examples brimming with inspiration for your next sewing project.

First up, how cute are these knit pajamas? These Playtime Leggings were sewn using Flotsam and Jetsam Navy as well as Hello Peach. Be sure to check out our tutorial called How to Add Cuffs to Knit Patterns to Make Pajamas.

I’ve put together some examples of other possibilities to get your creative juices flowing.

1) For a cute top try a School Bus T-shirt in Flotsam and Jetsam Cream.
