Celebrate Color {Bias Trimmed Cardigan}

Now this is why I need to buy knit fabrics.  If I had some in the house, I'd be sorely tempted to stitch up a cardigan for my daughter Aria.  How could I resist when Anna's made it so darn easy?  Even 3-dimensionally challenged as I am, I can totally see how this one goes together.  It would be such fun to do the bias trim in a cute, girly print too!

Anna of Noodlehead is a personal hero of mine.  Not only does she make gorgeous quilts and pretty, yet practical bags, she also turns out tons of cute clothes for her girls and herself.  Thanks so much, Anna, for making your Bias-Trimmed Knit Cardigan tutorial for Celebrate Color!

Let's have a little Celebrate Color update, shall we?  For my new readers, Celebrate Color is a 3-month event for fiber artists of all kinds.  With my partners Emma Lamb, Shannon and Mollie, plus occasional guests like Anna today, we're bringing you inspiration and tutorials designed to celebrate the colors of autumn.  We hope you'll join in by sewing, knitting, crocheting, embroidering, weaving, quilting or a lovely combination of the above.  Find out more here and see all of the inspiration posts and tutorials at the main Celebrate Color page.

We really, really, really want to see your fall-inspired creations.  An event like this is only as fun as the folks who join in!  So, to sweeten the deal we've arranged for a huge load of prizes each month to winners in each fiber art category.  To be eligible to win follow the entry rules.  After making your blog post, you'll add your photo to the photo pool that fits your project.  The October prizes are seriously amazing!  To be in the running, add your project by October 26th.  Yes, that's before the end of October.  Noted?  Ok. 

This week is a bit heavy on the festivities since I was away last week with The Sewing Summit.  We've got one more guest tutorial at the end of the week which I'm eager to see!  In the meantime, I'm finishing up my next fall-inspired project which I'll be sharing with you next week.  I had been stumped, but after coming home from the Summit, I know how I'll finish it.  It's kind of different for me. I hope you like it too!


  1. Anna's work is always lovely, but these cardigans are so cute! I've never used knits, but maybe I should start...

    I've got to get my Celebrate Color act together, so I don't miss out on the awesome prizes (like last month!).

  2. sweeeeet! Those are awesome.

    ...waiting for more Sewing Summit coverage!! lol

  3. Oh, I didn't realize when I visited Anna's blog this morning that these precious cardi's were part of Celebrate Color!

    I am hoping to hit up each category this month. 1 down... LOL

    And, I second the Sewing Summit coverage!!! :)

  4. yay, thanks for including me rachel. :)

  5. Cute cardigans! Anna's work is always so good. Hopefully entering Octobers celebrate colour. Not sure if to venture into another category though, the fabric prize is amazing, but I can't compete with all those beautiful quilts! Some day I will!
