favorite things friday: tiny pocket tank

It's not very often that I come upon a sewing pattern that I not only LOVE, but am really excited to try. You see, sewing patterns and I don't exactly have the best track record. I was feeling remarkably brave one day and purchased the scout woven tee & the tiny pocket tank pattern from grainline studio. I've yet to sew up the scout woven tee, but that's definitely my next project. 

Not only was the pattern INCREDIBLY AFFORDABLE but it also came straight to my inbox to download and print....AND I can't say enough about how easy to follow this pattern was. Jen has a step-by-step photo tutorial for the tank on her blog and it made everything so do-able and whatever the opposite of frustrating is ;)

I love this pattern so much that I made TWO in the past couple of weeks. 

((3 of the 4 fabrics shown above were purchased from hawthorne threads))

SO, if you're looking for a fun and simple sewing project to do this weekend buy the tiny pocket tank pattern and sew yourself a cute little tank! 
While you're at it, use the code OHSWEETJOY for 10% off :)

You're welcome!



  1. Beautiful job! Love the little pocket.

  2. oh girl, I'm SO on this! purchasing... NOW. what kind of fabric did you use? regular quilting weight?

  3. Lovely job...theyre adorable. Can you share where your Make Do & Mend print is from? Im loving that:)

  4. So sweet! How are you so darn cute?

  5. so this is my goal this summer. use patterns. because currently they scare the crizzap outta me. i am sooo using this discount for both the tee & the tank!

    thanks love!

  6. The sailboat prints are AMAZING–and I love a good pattern! My mom usually ends up just making her own, but I've never gotten the hang of it. Or sewing, really, come to think of it...

  7. LOVE the tanks! I make stuff for my house (e.g. blankets, pillows) and I've wanted to start making clothes for a while but I'm so intimidated. You make it look really easy so maybe I'll try this one for my first article of clothing :) (... also LOVE Hawthorne Threads! My hands-down fav.)

  8. I just bought the pattern! I can't wait to try it out this weekend. Thanks for the tip!

  9. After reading this post, I bought the pattern and whipped one up with some thrifted fabric. I plan to make a few more before the summer is over!

    Check it out:

    Thanks for posting!

  10. Loved this post so much I went and bought it immediately! Only thing - not quite sure where the discount code was meant to go - there wasn't a spot to put one in :(

    Looking forward to making this one up!

  11. The tiny pocket tank has been on my list for awhile. Your's turned out great!
