Imagine Gnats January Pattern Tour & Giveaway: Tumble Tee Love

I'm helping wrap up the Imagine Gnats January Pattern Tour today! 

I was one of the pattern testers for the Tumble Tee last spring.  I sewed up two (here and here) and the girls wore them quite a bit over the summer.  When Rachael offered the long sleeve as a free download in October, I knew I needed to make a long sleeve Tumble Tee this winter.

size:  6
fabric:  Liberty of London Jersey Print and hot pink cotton interlock
mods:  added some color blocking and a heart applique
The Tumble Tee is easy to color block and therefore, a great pattern to use up scraps of knit.  I didn't have quite enough Liberty Jersey to make the top long enough so I chopped 3" off of my pattern's front and back so I could add the hot pink.  *Don't forget to add seam allowances to the bottom of your main pattern piece(s) and the top of the 3" piece(s).
The heart was a last minute addition.  When I went to get BK so I could take pictures of her wearing the Tumble Tee, I noticed that her back pockets on her jeans were hearts.
I couldn't resist adding a little heart applique to the front of the top.:)  It's nothing fancy.  I drew a heart, cut it out of a scrap of red interlock, eyeballed the placement and pinned it to the top, and stitched it on.
Want to make your own Tumble Tee or one of the other patterns from Imagine Gnats?  You can enter below to win a pattern of your choice! All of the patterns are also 20% off through January 31st with the code "januarytour".
