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! 🙂 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!

Favourite Piece

I am super excited to show my new favourite piece! <3 Tadaaaa…..here it the Taeschling from Allerleikind:Taeschling Allerleikind

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.
