Suit up for Summer with Raspberry Creek Fabrics

What a wacky year 2020 is turning out to be yes? When I was first invited to join the annual Raspberry Creek Fabrics Suit up for Summer Blog Tour hosted by SewSophieLynn and Paisley Roots, I of course had no idea that there would be a chance we may not actually GET to wear our swimsuits this year, but one can always HOPE! I don't know about you, but my emotions have been all over the place. Last week all I could see was a downward spiral of gloom, but this week I have a bit more hope. So, here's to a summer of sprinklers, water tables, and HOPEFULLY swimming pools too!

Misusu Dia Tunic & Boo! Leggings

As I mentioned in my last post, my 3 year old is Owl obsessed. She is constantly hooting, flapping, requesting to watch videos on owl pellets, demands owl books when we visit the library each week, and has been gradually amassing a collection of cute, stuffed owls.

A Flounce for Boo! Designs Swimmers!

I decided that if I made her a bikini, I'd make it fairly modest, so enter: flounces and high waisted bottoms! *Affiliate links included in this post… Continue reading A Flounce for Boo!

MerKitty Baby Swimmers!

Now for some cuteness for the baby! Ok, fine, "the toddler." She's still my baby though 🙂 🙂 🙂 (Contains affiliate links) With my leftover MK*Designs Glam Merkitties and Glam Scales, I wanted to make a rashguard and bottoms for my littlest. She just adores modeling them! Actually, she's fun to photograph because she just… Continue reading MerKitty Baby Swimmers!

Glam Merkitty Swimsuit!

I have frequently professed my love for the Boo! Designs Swimmers pattern*, so even though I was *tempted* to try a new swimsuit pattern for sewing up these super cute Merkitties from MK*Designs, I decided to just stick with my old-faithful but change up some of the details! Why reinvent the wheel, right? ;-). No,… Continue reading Glam Merkitty Swimsuit!
