RCF Swimsuit Tour 2021- Sponsored Post

Posted by Heather at Tuesday, March 23, 2021 0 comments

Swimmer Girl practically LIVES in swimsuits...! She swims competitively year-round, practices four times a week and backstroke IS.HER.JAM!! (She made a state cut time in 100y backstroke, earlier this year- woohoo!) While she must wear regulation suits to sanctioned meets, she always favors mama-made suits for practice and the Jalie Diane Tank Swimsuit is one of her favorites! Pair it with beautiful Raspberry Creek Fabrics Aqua Blue Orange and Magenta Tie Dye Print Swim and Missy's already swimming faster! ;)

This was our first swim make of the season and the weather was a touch on the cool side for modeled pictures. However, that didn't stop Missy from throwing out peace signs and showing off this gorgeous suit in newly released Raspberry Creek Fabrics Aqua Blue Orange and Magenta Tie Dye Print Swim! The fabric washed well and the colors were steadfast. So vibrant! And, since I can't just make a solid color/fabric suit, I was able to pair the Raspberry Creek Fabrics Aqua Blue Orange and Magenta Tie Dye Print Swim with Raspberry Creek Fabrics Solid Magenta Swim fabric- it's the perfect compliment! I fully lined the suit with Raspberry Creek Fabrics Beige Flesh Tone Lining and it bears mentioning that the lining was lightweight but not see-through- exactly what you want in swim lining! ;)

While I sewed up the newly released Raspberry Creek Fabrics Aqua Blue Orange and Magenta Tie Dye Print Swim, there is a whole new summer collection of swim fabrics and they are all so fun (to sew AND wear!)!

Sponsored Post- The Fabric Fairy Patterns for Pirate Mama Bear Joggers

Posted by Heather at Sunday, February 07, 2021 0 comments

Miss is one week away from her 11th birthday and she is growing UP! I recently noticed that her pants were starting to look more like capris, so I decided to sew up some new joggers for her. When I measured her, I was SHOCKED to find that her inseam is a WHOLE THREE INCHES LONGER than mine! *gasp!* No wonder!

I sewed up my personal favorite jogger pattern, the Patterns for Pirate Mama Bear Joggers for Missy in this yummy Dark Olive Poly Lycra Fleece Backed Knit from one of my favorite online knit retailers, The Fabric Fairy. The fabric is warm and insulating but not so thick that your sewing machine starts to have fits and begins to hate you. ;) The fabric cut really cleanly and I had no problem getting a size XXS Patterns for Pirate Mama Bear Joggers out of less than two yards of Dark Olive Poly Lycra Fleece Backed Knit (including pockets- of course! ;). I also got the flat drawstring from The Fabric Fairy- this was my first drawstring installation!

Needless to say, Missy is comfy and stylish AND her pants actually fit her like pants (and not capris!).
