To showcase…

I am so excited to show you these pictures. Elliott and I had so much fun taking these. The days here have been so hot, that I went out in the morning with the kids to get the photos done. Liam was sleeping in his stroller, while E was going wild.Taeschling Alleleikind sweing diy boys toddler

He loves his new Täschling, the pants are super comfy. They have the right amount of room to run around, jump, climb and just be a goofy toddler.

I had to bribe him sometimes and tell him : “Put your tongue in”, “Look at me”, “No, take your arms out of the shirt”. I wanted to be stern, but I actually laughed the whole time.IMG_2899

Watching him being the “cool guy” as he calls it and being the loveable goof , made me realize how much he has grown in the last couple months. Made by Lili Taeschling 2.0 Gr. 104 (10)

He asks me tons of questions and tells me so many stories, that I am sometimes amazed on how much he knows. He now asks me to make him clothes, which used to be a struggle and a fight to try something on.

I speak German to the kids most of the time, yes I do slip a lot of English in, but for a tired Mama of 2 two with a full on speaking English household, it’s sometimes just easier. And I have to remind myself to keep on speaking German, because now E is picking up the language and using words in his sentences. It’s quiet entertaining to hear him build the words into his sentences.

Just a couple of months and Big Brudi is turning 4. Amazing 4 years. Funny, my intention was to write about the Allerleikind’s Täschling and I completely let my Mama heart go sentimalitis.close up taeschling

In the next post I’ll talk about more Taeschling The pattern was provided by Allerleikind.

Shower of Stars

Finally back to blogging and sewing. We started our new adventure 4 weeks ago and we can proudly call us homeowners now. It took me a bit to find the hard drive which had all the images for this blog entry. I am still missing my the cord for myprinter. And to be honest I underestimated on how hard it would be to move 7 1/2 months pregnant, and of course there was so much going on afterwards (friends from out-of-town, little stupid accidents, work and daily life) that I needed a bit of a break.

However, I promised in my last post that I would show you another version of the Taeschling. The Taeschling pattern is a little star, or maybe I should call it  “Shower of Stars” because you have so many options. You can just create it the way you want it  and for every season.

This version has the extended legs, so the pants can grow with your little one. You can roll the hem up or just scruff it together, it stretches with the kids movement.  The Taeschling is just fun and I can’t wait to sew so more. I’ve finally gotten my machine back out. YAY!

Elliott loves to wear his Taeschling. The pants are super comfy and I actually just want a pair for myself. I am just waiting for Allerleikind to create and adult version. *hint hint*

I had the privilege to be selected as test sewer for a super awesome pattern from AllerleiKind.Taeschling Allerleikind

The e-book will be published soon, but I just couldn’t wait to show you one of my first variation of the pants.Taeschling Allerleikind close up

The pants can be created the way you want them to look, long, short or for your growing child. Allerleikind made it possible to offer one pattern with up to 12 different (to see all the variations follow the link) ways to sew pants for your child. Doesn’t matter if boy or girl!  She provides 3 different ways to finish the legs and 4 different ways to create your front pockets on the pants.

In this post I only show you the short version and one variation of the front pockets. I will show you the other version in another post! I felt like each pair of pants needed its own post!  Taeschling Allerleikind

I’ve used Lillestoff and Birch Jersey Fabric for the Pants and Shirt.Taeschling  and Shirt Diy

I’ve created the Shirt a little while ago and really liked the unusual combo and thought it would be perfect for the Taeschling. And I know this might be a bit of an overdo with matching shirt and pants, but I just had to put them together for the “photo shoot”.

Well you can’t really call it photo shoot, he was wearing his clothes 15-20 minutes and after that everything was off and he ran around naked in the yard, because it has been so hot here in Seattle.
