A few months ago my super wonderful sister in law Sophie told me she wanted a Briar.
I’m going to give you a moment to visualize the happy dance i did. I love making things for friends and family, it’s such a fun rewarding thing! Mending NO, don’t you dare try and give me your mending, but making something special for someone i love, that’s awesome.
She wanted something navy or black, and she wanted a version with shoulder patches that she could wear as a sweater.
And don’t you know it, fate stepped in, and i had the perfect thick navy jersey in my stash and just enough black to make some patches. I used the exact same method that i shared in this tutorial - and BOOM Sophies Briar was done!
It was a nice quick sew and I’m really happy with how this piece turned out. I think it’s very Sophie – and i like that it’s quite a transistional piece too – good for layering and good for summer nights or spring/autumn days.
Then… it took me a month to mail it to her. Story of my life hehehehe.
