Here Comes the Fun Fabrics!

Here comes the fun at Sew and Tell Project today! This post is actually a little bit of a crafty flash back for me. These pieces were actually the first things I created when I returned FULL  of inspiration from Quilt Market last October. I am so glad I finally get to share them on the Here Comes the Fun Blog Hop today!

I first saw the “Here Comes the Fun” Fabrics line at Quilt Market and I knew I needed to create with it. Because I had seen all the fantastic, intricate quilts at Quilt Market, I had to do the patchwork-inspired Emma’s Herringbone Dress for my oldest daughter. It was a fun way for me to utilize every print in the Cool Street colorway bundle I grabbed at Sample Spree and also try a pattern that had been on my must-make list since it released.

But the look I want to focus on for this post is the look I created for my only son! The Boy is wearing a Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop Classic Oxford shirt. When you click around my blog, you will see LOTS of gorgeous outfits for myself and for my girls made with Art Gallery Fabrics. I want to use this stop on the blog hop to talk about how Art Gallery Fabrics work just as well for the boys!

I chose to use a fairly neutral accent print from the collection to make a simple black and white button down shirt for my four-year-old son. I added bright orange KAM snaps for a pop of color and for easy dressing and undressing for him!

One of my favorite things about this shoot, was that my little boy got to coordinate with his sisters for it. He is my third child but my oldest child has always been like a Little Mama to him. I will treasure the photos I took of them goofing around together as much as I’ve treasured my time sewing special and FUN outfits for them!

    The herringbone skirt on the dress is so beautiful and who doesn’t love a young man in an Oxford shirt! Both outfits are dressy, fun and playful.
