There’s something inspirational going on this year. Celina of Petit a Petit and Family created Project Sew It. You can read all about it here, but the basic premise is to sew one thing every month. I’m putting my own twist on it by sewing one thing for each of my nieces and nephews for their birthdays this year. It won’t end up being once per month, and sometimes it’ll be more than once per month, but it’s my goal! I sew so much for my kids, that I want to share the sewing love.
The first entry in my version of Project Sew It is for a brother and sister. My oldest niece, E, is growing into such a lovely young lady. I wanted to sew something mature enough for her. I used the Skipalong Skort pattern from Peekaboo Pattern Shop. (affiliate link) Since this one is also an adult pattern (which I made for Allegra here) I knew the style would be grown up enough. The fabric is Art Gallery Fabrics, which I used first for Annie’s Antalya dress. But I think the fabric is mature enough since I originally bought it to make something for ME!
Since my niece and nephew have birthdays close to each other I wanted to make something matching without it being too matching.
So when I was sewing David’s Oliver + S Field Trip raglan t-shirt, I actually whipped up two of them, one for David and one for A. The pocket is matching, but not too sticky sweet matching, don’t you think? I really am having a hard time believing A is this big.
I should have noted above that I will need the help of my sister and sister in law to make this project a reality! My sister in law texted me the most adorable photo of these two in their clothes when they received them. How much cuter could it get? Alright, now I’m off to check the calendar and see who has the next birthday coming up.
