Hello there, beautiful sewing people! I still don’t feel going outside since the weather is still cold. This tropical momma wants to stay inside the house, keep herself warm and sew all day long. What else will I do? Blog! Yep, blog about this lovely coral sweater knit that I have from Simply By Ti.

Yes, it is only $4.85! I was so surprised when I saw how much it costs. Honestly, I got a little intrigued about this fabric. I was talking to myself, “Why is this fabric so cheap? Maybe it isn’t that great?” But guess what? this fabraic is really great and yet the price is budget-friendly. Take a look at these pictures. I made a hacked Janis
