Friends! I cannot even tell you how excited I am to share these Chemistry Scrubs with you. You’re probably thinking, “Umm..okay. They are just scrubs.” Yes, they are plain ordinary scrubs, this is true. The most totally awesome thing about them is they are sewn with fabric I designed for Riley Blake Designs! (Insert annoying high-pitched squeal…and some tears).
I wanted to create something that was not too juvenile and could be used for adults and college kids alike.
This is my blogger bio that is normally at the end of posts and tutorials. Do you see that part that I circled? I have dreamed of designing fabric for about 5 years now. A dream that I had no idea how to achieve, but I “put it out there” and EVERYTHING lined up to make it happen…more on that another day. For now, I am just enjoying making things with my very own fabric.
To make these awesome scrubs, I decided to follow a pattern. SHOCKER, right? I normally just “wing it” and try to figure it out as I go. I have learned this method might not be the most effective way to sew, so I bought Simplicity S0816 at Joann Crafts and then I modified it a bit.
I bought this particular pattern because of the pockets. I have NEVER sewn pockets before and wanted to learn…the right way; no guessing.
So I followed the instructions on the pattern and made my very first set of pockets. Yeah! I decided to leave off the pockets on the legs as well as the draw string. They were super easy-to-sew and now sciency son and his sciency mom have coordinating scrubs…in fabric I DESIGNED!
