My Little Rockin’ Robots

DSC_0324el

My kids are crazy about robots. I can’t remember when it started but they think they’re silly and my son grins every time I show him how to dance like a robot.

When I saw this fabric from Sly Fox Fabrics, I knew he would love it! Sister totally geeked out too and demanded a dress (the only garment she’ll wear these days…).

My son’s outfit consists of the Domi Sweat Pants from Sofilantjes Patterns and the Boulter Tee from Gracious Threads.

For the pants, I used this black cotton spandex from SFF and used the circle pocket (there is also a square version) and the 3/4 length to help us with the transition to warmer weather. I haven’t seen this length or pocket type on many patterns. Sewing with more stable knits is such a treat and both the robots and black cotton spandex felt dreamy soft and thick.

For my son’s shirt, I decided to go a little rogue on the pattern and add some fun color blocking. I also used a grey cotton spandex, like this one from SFF.

For my daughter’s dress, I used the Key West Tank from New Horizons and simply extended the side seam lines to create a fun swing dress. This pattern also comes in ladies sizes and both the girls and ladies versions are FREE to members of the New Horizons Designs FB group. To suit her love for all that is pink, I added pink bands and drafted some heart pockets using double brushed poly like this one from SFF.

 

Happy Me Made May!!!!

I love this month because the sewing community is abuzz with the wearable garments, inspiring me to continually re-examine my own sewing goals/priorities (something foremost on my brain recently – blog post here).

Sly Fox Fabrics is a huge supporter of Me Made May and has some really fun things (PRIZES!!!! Coverstich, serger, vinyl cutter, gift cards galore) planned for those participating. For more details, check out this post here in their FB group.

Also, don’t forget about their monthly serger giveaway. Check out their website here for more details.

I received the robot and black fabric for free in exchange for sewing and photographing it.
