a few sewing projects

just sharing a few recent sewing projects!

you may remember the Big Butt Baby Pants I made for Brooke just after Christmas. They no longer fit her (sad face!)…but no worries, I made some more to fit her cloth diapered bum:

They are sort of big right now, but will fit perfectly this Fall/Winter – and I like that I can roll them for now. Woot! They are soft and make the perfect play pants. She is SUPER active right now, so these pants are just what we need…

I also decided to try another one of Rae’s awesome patterns and made this Charlie Pullover Tunic. It just needs buttons, but other than that it’s done. This was by far the most challenging sewing project I’ve done…! It turned out OK…could be better but at least I know my mistakes for next time.

trying it on…I think she likes it?? (please don’t mind the lack of pants. It was hot and I was pushing my luck trying the shirt on..let alone pants…ha!)

I might get super brave and try the Charlie Dress Add-On next, because OMGLOVE!! I can only imagine how cute that dress would look on Brooke.

Also, can we all agree that my child is growing FAR TOO FAST?? GAHHH!! How did that happen??
