Today I made one of my all time favorite patterns, The Aurthi by Tikatuly, for my 10 month old (Ack, 10 months already!! And did I mention that she’s been walking for a month now? Time needs to slow down!!!) There are several different hem designs, lengths, necklines, AND it’s reversible. So many different options, and a great pattern to showcase a cute print. I also got to use those awesome KAM snaps again! I used an Alexander Henry print that I found hidden in the depths of my fabric closet. I forgot I even bought it…. perhaps that’s a sign that I buy too much fabric. Nah! You can NEVER have too much fabric!
Onto the cuteness!! (excuse my grainy pics… I can’t wait until it warms up and we can get some nice outdoor pictures!)
Here’s the reverse side. It’s so hard to get a good picture of a mobile baby!!
And the back. So cute, right?!?!
For the last few weeks, Linnaea has been obsessed with pretending to be a super hero. She grabs her blankie, tucks it into the collar of her shirt, and is off the save the day! Obviously, a super hero’s cape is an extremely important part of their wardrobe. So, mommy just HAD to make her a special one! And once Linnaea found out that I was making one for her, she insisted that little sister get one too.
Lucky for us, Peek-A-Boo Patterns has a FREE Super Kid Cape Pattern! So, that’s what I worked on today. These went today quickly and easily. Linnaea got to pick out what fabrics we used, and we finished it off with KAM snaps at the neck. (If you haven’t already discovered KAM snaps, I highly encourage you to go check them out! You’ll be putting snaps on EVERYTHING!!)
Here’s our super heroes in action!
I think the chevron looks great! Linnaea has an eye for fabric already 🙂
Did you know that Super Hero capes can make you run faster and jump higher?
Fun, fun, fun!!!!!
Kids Clothes Week has begun! I spent yesterday and today working on Apple Loungewear by Shwin Designs!
I have to say, I am absolutely in love with this pattern. It was easy to follow and went together pretty quickly. I don’t think I’ll ever use another pattern for leggings. I am in LOVE with these. And they have a fold over, non-elastic, waistband! No threading elastic through casings!!!!
Enough of my ravings… onto the pictures!
How comfy does she look!!
And pockets!!! Gotta love pockets ❤
What are you working on??
Kids Clothes Week starts TOMORROW!!!
I’ve been doing some planning, and thought I’d share what I’ll be working on throughout the week. I’ll post updates as I go, and look forward to seeing what you’re making too!
ON MY LIST:
–Apple Loungewear by Shwin Designs: I’m excited for this one! I bought fabric for it back on Black Friday, and have yet to have the opportunity to sew it up.
–Super Kid Cape by Peek-A-Boo Patterns: Linnaea is obsessed with playing super heroes. She wraps blankets around her neck and pretends to be Superman. So, when this FREE pattern came out, I knew I just had to sew one for her!
–Aurthi Reversible Tunic by Tikatuly: I’ve made several of these and it is one of my all time favorite patterns. LOVE it! This week, I’m going to make one for daughter #2 🙂
–Doll Clothes by Ellie Inspired: Ok, so not for my kids to wear, but something for them to play with! Linnaea got an 18″ doll for Christmas, and she needs some new clothes!
Ready to start sewing tomorrow!!!!
I’ve missed the pasted few KCW’s, but I plan to participate in the Winter 2014 challenge, January 27-February 2. I invite you all to join me! It’s a lot of fun, and a great excuse to get some sewing done!! If you’ve never participated before, the idea is to dedicate one hour a day to creating kids clothes (could be cutting patterns, fabrics, or sewing). I’ll be posting all the fun stuff I create throughout the week, and can’t wait to see what you come up with, too! And be sure to check out their Facebook page.
Is it really 2014 already?? And has it really been 3 months since my last post?
Oops!! I could throw out a handful of excuses, but I won’t. What I will vow to do is blog MORE this year! I want to commit to at least once a month, hopefully more 🙂
An update on me:
Jessa is now 9.5 months old, and is taking her first steps!! Ack! It happened too fast! I bet she’ll be full on walking before she turns 10 months. We’re already throwing around ideas for her first birthday party. Ummm… wasn’t she just born yesterday?
And Miss Linnaea celebrated her third birthday in October. We’ve started preschool here at home and she has a blast. Christmas was so much fun with her this year! It was the first year that she really understood the magic of Christmas.
This year the hubs and I are working on growing our businesses. (Don’t forget to go check out Country Meadow Treasures!)
Looking forward to an exciting and prosperous New Year and wish the same for all my readers!!
