The Most Stylish (and Comfy) Pattern

Just looking at these photos makes me want to make more!!!  This is Chalk and Notch's Girl's Waterfall Raglan.  It is such an easy and fast sew and I love that it is super comfy for Hazel, while being a little stylish and super cute.  I feel like I can send Hazel to daycare in these with leggings and she looks extra cute while being able to run around and play like the almost 2 year old she is.  I made these two long sleeve tunic versions in size 18m and she is starting to grow out of them, so I need to print and cut out the 2T size. I'm thinking I might even make a cute easter dress in the dress version with short sleeves.  I have sparkly heart leggings that I am going to pair with the burgundy velvet one for valentine's day :)

Shirtzies for Hazel

Besides leggings, I think this is my most used pattern for Hazel.  It's the girl's Shirtzie from Stitch Upon a Time.  I got to test for this pattern a few months ago and it was so much fun, but I have made even more recently!  I even started a Christmas dress using a burgundy sweater knit and a sparkly ruffled knit for the skirt.  There might even be a matching women's Shirtzie in the works for myself ...those photos to come😉

Matchy Matchy

I really liked how a few gift items I made turned out.  I do find that it is difficult to sew clothes for friends as gifts.  Difficult to choose a size, difficult to pick a style and fabrics I think they would like.  But, I liked how these tank tops and underwear sets came out.   Even if the fit isn't perfect, they can end up wearing them as pajamas.  The top is also a little baggy in some areas, so hopefully this could help since the fit doesn't have to be perfect to still look good.  I also love gifts that got together like this.  Hopefully the gifts are liked as well!!!
Tank top is Stitch Upon a Time, Spoxxy and underwear is Scrundlewear by Stitch Upon a Time as well.

Red, White, (Grey), and Blue

I made Ryan a grey striped and red shirt a while ago, and he was excited to wear it on 4th of july with his blue shorts.  I like sewing for Ryan and it makes me even happier when he likes wearing what I make him.   There aren't a ton of guy patterns, but he also goes for t-shirts mostly.  I should make him some more t-shirts!
Hazel got two (mommy made) red, white, and blue outfits.  One she wore on memorial day, one on 4th of July.  I think she might end up wearing both of these just once!  Seems like a lot of work for my baby to wear something once, but in the end, I enjoy the process and seeing her wear what I made.

Hazel in her 4th of July Stitch Upon a Time Aurora dress.  Sadly, this is the best photo I have of her in it!  It's stretchy and a little large on her so it might fit her next year too!

Re-Purposed Shirt for Hazel

I picked up a large shirt at a yard sale the other day, I think it was only 50 cents.  It had a turtle (one of the words Hazel says right now) on it and I thought I could make it into something for Hazel.  At first I was thinking a romper, but ended up using a pattern I had to make it into a tunic length shirt.  I used the front of the shirt and some leftover knit fabric I had from another project.  The back and sleeves are the other fabric I had, and I reused the neckband from the T-shirt.  I really like the curved hem and the patterned fabric for the back and sleeves makes it more unique. 

  Pattern is the YoHo Henley by Patterns for Pirates in size 18m.
