It’s that time of month again, where we get to share all about the delicious fabric that we sent this month for the Fabric for Pirates subscription!
We delivered a “Yummy Thermal” knit fabric, in this pretty camel color. Once again, we chose a color that I don’t normally gravitate towards, so I’m glad I got a chance to try it out against my coloring. I have to say, I like it! Here are the specifics:
- YUMMY THERMAL
- Width: 58/60″ GSM: 180.00
- Material: 94% Polyester / 6% Spandex
I chose to use the Patterns for Pirates Favorite Tee for this particular fabric, because I really wanted a basic tshirt style top — and I absolutely love the fit of this shirt. It’s just loose enough in the waist and hips without being overly loose. It paired fabulously with this fabric!

I’ve been seeing sweaters like this pop up in my feed recently. Mostly they’re little girl’s sweaters with their names stitched onto them. So obviously this full grown adult needed a copycat version — but I opted for not using my name. HOWEVER. Figuring out a single word that I was capable of creating out of chain stitched yarn was much harder than I thought it would be.
I asked our promo team for help. And they weren’t super helpful. See the word suggestion below.
In case you can’t read my yarn script…it says: fart. My team suggested “fart” and then were disappointed that I went another direction.
I don’t know, I just felt like “love” was more appropriate for February. But I could be wrong.
Here’s a quick video I made of the process of adding creating my top! It’s so fun to make Reels but it’s so hard to remember to film all of the steps. But look at me, I made it happen this time!
