Not enough Shirts?

Shirts DIY Lillestoff Birch FabricYou can have never enough shirts! Doesn’t matter if you are a boy or a girl! I’ve managed to show a lot of my shirts on Facebook or Instagram, but never on here. So as promised…here they are:

To be honest, those are not even all of the Shirts I’ve made, most of them are already to small. Which always makes me a little sad, because I love each and every one of them. At least I will have another little one which can wear them at some point! ūüôā And then some of them were given away as birthday presents.¬†Shirts DIY Lillestoff Birch Fabric

Most of the time I am using Lillestoff to sew the Shirts for Elliott and mix them with a solid color Jersey I buy at the local fabric Store.

Sometimes I am lucky enough to have matching Lillestoff and it’s a lot easier to create the shirts, than finding the right contrast colors.¬†Shirts DIY Lillestoff Birch Fabric

The last shirt I’ve created, I actually also used Birch fabric for the sleeves. It still had some left over from another shirt, I’ve created a couple months ago.Shirt Made from Lillestoff and Birch Fabric

And I made it matching to the Taeschling E is wearing from the last Blogpost.Taeschling and Shirt Diy

Let me know if you want to know more about Lillestoff, which seller I prefer etc. I haven’t found a fabric Store in the Seattle Area, which sells it, so I buy my fabric online or import it. Just email me really quick and I will get back to you!

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*
