Our dear friend Chelsea over at GYCT Designs is showing off two amazing patterns with a blog tour. The Tinley Tee and the Love Me Knot shorts! Both patterns are super cute alone, as well as great together. Knot only that, (see what I did there) they are super easy sews! The only problem with that is now I want to make Princess B one of each for every day of the week! Take a look at what I did with the patterns. I was given these patterns for free in participation of the tour, but you can win and/or buy these patterns yourself! Check out the bottom of the post to see how.
I debated long and hard if I was going to do a ruffle and just band it with some of the jean material, but little chunkers, I mean little Princess, has chunky thighs and she didn’t like how tight it was when I tried them on her. she kept pulling at them, so again my mind was made up for me! She just turned one (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and already has a mind of her own with her clothes! I thought I still had a couple more years. Mr. M is almost 4 (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and he would wear a paper sack if I asked him! hahaha
Before the Princess took off with my extra fabric I did get the banding of the shorts and the pockets cut out in the same material as the bias tape. This was just a fat quarter I have had in my stash forever!
The elastic banding on the back of the Love Me Knot shorts make this so versatile! It can be made in practically any fabric! Again, because of the ease of these shorts, I am going to be making Princess B many more of these as she grows!
Before I get to the giveaway and the coupon code I will share one more cute picture, this was captured moments before Princess tripped over thin air (she gets her grace from me) and scrapped open her chin, there is still a layer or two of her skin on that bench. She bit through the tip of her tongue and a shoe some how flew off!! There were screams and blood as far as the eyes and ears could fathom… and then when she realized her shoe was in the grass and not on her foot anymore. she was completely distracted and amazed! Hahaha her grace from mommy, her distractibility from daddy!
