Hi All.  It’s not that I haven’t been sewing, but I’ve been remiss with keeping up with the blog!  I will try to do better!

15936852_1453024031376519_7759357537114069262_oCailey chose to have this top made from a little ribbed light blue ballerina t-shirt knit and wanted lavender stretch lace for the back.  It was chilly outside, so our little model got cold quickly, but she did wear it to school with a cami underneath the next day.  She wants a pink butterfly short sleeved one next with hot pink lace for the back and sleeves.  She adores her new top!  And our group of testers LOVED this top so much that we encouraged Jennifer Gunn to put a matching Ladies sized on her pattern to do list so look for one later in the year!

Justin’s and Justine’s Muscle Top by Snuggle My Baby Patterns

Justin’s and Justine’s Muscle Top by Snuggle My Baby Patterns is sure to become a staple in your wardrobe for this summer! DSCN7364 It comes in sizes 2T-16 and is unisex so the same pattern can be used by both the boys and girls in the family.

It is to be made from a knit-make sure to check the stretch on your knit!  If you have never sewn with knit, don’t worry.  There is a page explaining how to sew knits from needles to threads to stitches.

A serger makes construction extremely quick, but don’t worry if you don’t have one, a regular machine works just fine with a specialty needle and some stretch stitches or zigzags.

There are only two main pieces to this pattern, the remaining are the bindings for the arm and neck.  As with all the Snuggle My Baby Patterns, the instructions are very detailed with plenty of pictures to guide you.

This pattern is a beginners pattern.  After it was cut I finished my tops in approximately 20 minutes!  The kids love them!


Make sure you measure your child and compare those measurements against the sizing chart.  The best thing about this is that you can personalize your look by making a size 5 shirt with a size 7 length.  My grandson is usually swimming in shirts so it was nice to see one that actually fit him!  I upcycled a shirt from his wrestling team from a Men’s M that he probably wouldn’t use for years.  He wants to wear it to school, but winter hasn’t left PA yet and temps have been in the 50’s by the time he gets home!






My granddaughter’s shirt is an interlocking knit that I had in my stash.  She wanted it trimmed in pink.

They have both picked out several other fabrics to make more and are looking for shorts material to match them.  Warmer weather is coming! (I hope!)

Genevieve’s Summer Scoop Tank Top by Snuggle My Baby Patterns

DSCN9302Genevieve’s Summer Scoop Tank Top by Snuggle My Baby Patterns an adorable top for girls in sizes 2t-12 yrs.  It has a high neckline and wide shoulders making it unique and can be worn into the fall!  If you’re afraid of knits, this is the top for you!  This was such a fast sew and so easy to put together.  The instructions are very well written and each step is fully explained. It is very versatile with two basic options.


Option 1 is all knit. I used a printed knit, but how pretty would it be with a solid knit with and embroidered front.


Option 2 has an overlay on the bottom that can be chiffon, lace or a woven. I used a white knit with a sparkly organza overlay.

The unique hem also lends itself to embellishment with lace, bias binding ribbon trim or since knits do not fray, you don’t even need a finished hem. This pattern will become a staple in your little (or big) girl’s wardrobe!DSCN9326
