Candy to My Soul

I have to admit I’m not a huge fan of this week’s Project Run & Play theme – Inspired by Candy. The only things I could think of were way too costume-y (cotton candy dress, anyone?) and I really am not a fan of making one-time-wear items. Halloween costumes being the exception :)┬áSo the more I thought about it, the more I kept coming back to this:

Sweet like candy

To my soul –

Sweet you rock,

Sweet you roll

Candy Shirts

These are Classic Ringer Tees with freezer paper stenciling on the fronts. John’s is his favorite color – green. Bean doesn’t really have an opinion yet (or at least can’t make it known…) so he got Mommy’s favorite – orange.

Someone was not overly thrilled I was taking pictures when he just wanted to cuddle with Bean.

They have color-coordinated ribbing at the necks and contrast topstitching which is kinda hard to see in the pictures.

I have no idea what’s going on in this one, but I think it’s funny :)

    SO cute! I love this take on the candy theme. I too struggled with the costumey aspect of the challenge. I linked up a Milky Way inspired outfit for my son… SO much fun! Emily@nap-timecreations

    So true! I’m posting my Nerds inspired outfit in the next few hours and had a hard time thinking something un-costumey up too. Great idea – I love that song! The shirts turned out really cute and I love their shorts too – did you make those?

      I did make the pants – they’re actually next weeks theme because I had both boys and all their clothes clean and didn’t want to take a chance that it would happen again!! I considered doing Nerds too, but couldn’t think how to do it. I’ll have to go check yours out! :)
