For a change of pace, Allegra wrote the above story using the photos she hadn’t taken from a photo shoot at which she was not present! You can thank her in the comments! All the rest of the boring clothing and fabric details follow, written by Audrey:
These three needed more play clothes. Flip This Pattern’s pattern for March is the Peekaboo pattern shop’s Boardwalk Henley and Hoodie pattern. We flipped it three different ways. The one thing these three things have in common is the coloring book iron on appliqué which the kids made themselves. If you want to do one yourself, we wrote a how-to tutorial for Crafting Con’s Once Upon A Time theme which you can read and make one for your kiddo!
Annie’s princess dress: Peekaboo pattern shop’s Boardwalk Henley and Hoodie pattern. Flipped by up cycling an old shirt of mine for the yoke, shortening the dress section and adding a third layer for a color block look. You may recognize the fabric from last year’s Josephine blouse and skirt.
David’s knight shirt: Peekaboo pattern shop’s Boardwalk Henley and Hoodie pattern. Flipped by combining the yoke and shirt pieces into one. Used some really soft denim-look knit fabric from JoAnn’s.
Sew My Stash 2015 reality check: 100% fabric from the stash, exceeding the goal of 50%! Yeah! Perfect play clothes without any extra cost; success!
Castle: We made a whole castle a few years ago, and this tower piece is all that survives. We used appliance boxes and plans from www.mrmcgroovys.com I dug out an old photo of the entire thing. The kids could crawl through the tunnels of the whole castle!
Have you ever built a castle? How about made Peekaboo pattern shop’s Boardwalk Henley and Hoodie pattern? Or done an iron-on appliqué? How about participated in Flip This Pattern? Checked out Crafting Con? Found a magic cat? Written a fairy tale? We have, and you should too!
