Welcome to my second stop on the 19 Amazing Mommy and Me Christmas Outfits sponsored by Petite Stitchery, Seamingly Smitten, 5 out of 4 Patterns, Aurora Designs Fabric and hosted by myself Seams Sew Lo! Please send the GIVEAWAY at the end of the post.  My first stop I had made some adorable Sparkly Mommy and Me Ponchos by our sponsor Seamingly Smitten.  They were so much fun.

Today! We are wearing the new Mommy and Me Lulu Dolmans Sewing Pattern (its on sale until the 11th!) by our sponsors Petite Stitchery in red and green!  I used a gorgeous hunter green stretch velvet from our sponsor Aurora Designs too!  The stretch velvet had a very nice weight and was fairly easy to work with.  When working with velvet, it can be a bit slippery.  I did serge the raw edges (without a seam allowance) of my cuffs and neckbands before adding them to the shirt.

I always like to try as many products from our sponsors as I can! I already knew I love the Lulu Dolman from Petite Stitchery.  You can check out the Petite Stitchery Women’s Top Release Blog tour to see more ideas. This was my first time trying the girls lulu dolman and it is so cute too!!

I originally wanted to do sparkly gold or sparkly green sleeves, however Baby Girl wanted sparkly red!  The fabric is a fun red sparkly metallic knit from Miss Nancy.  I may have several of her sparkly knit fabrics. I thought if I let Baby Girl decide, she would be happier wearing it.  I tried to do pictures the day I finished the top, but she refused to wear it because she wanted to wear pink.  LOL!  She is a bit obsessed right now with pink.  She promised she would wear it today and she did, with smiles.

I had planned on making either the Seamingly Smitten Mommy and Me Leggings or the 5 out of 4 Patterns leggings, however I ran out of time and I already had these red velvet leggings I had made last year.  The leggings pattern are the free Peg Legs pattern by Patterns for Pirates and the Free Bonny Legs by Made for Mermaids.  Everything is so comfortable, I feel like I am wearing pjs today.

While I was viewing our photos on the my laptop, Baby Girl brought out some of her favorite toys on our fireplace. (Like the color of our fireplace, see my easy tutorial on how to paint your own fireplace.)

Saint Nicholas brought the kids these fun wooden Christmas cookie toys.  Both of the kids love them.  Baby Girl decided her favorite pink kitty from the Doc Mcstuffins vet carrier and her Skye Paw Patrol stuffed animal wanted some cookies.

Nom Nom Nom!!  They were super hungry!!  She loves when I take pictures of her toys. If you need some ideas to buy a toddler girl for Christmas, these are probably her most played with toys right now.

It is hard to see them in our Mommy and Me pictures, however we both have matching reindeer necklaces.  I actually bought them last year, knowing she was too small to wear the necklace. I am glad I bought them though.  They are so sweet and she loved having matching Mommy and Me necklaces.  This is the best photo I could get, as she does not stop moving often.

About Seams Sew Lo 159 Articles
Hi I'm Lo and I love to sew and I also love to play with my two children! I am a work at home Mom of two toddlers.  I never planned on staying home with the kids, however when I was 8 and 1/2 months pregnant with my first child, Little Dude, I was unexpectedly let go from my corporate job.  With a newborn and a tough job market, I decided to buy a Brother Sewing/Embroidery Machine and taught myself to sew. I would like to thank the many bloggers, youtube videos I have watched and PDF pattern designers for all their help. With a degree in International Business from Blaise-Pascal University in France I decided to open my own business, an Etsy shop.  I started making baby leg warmers and then added embroidered bodysuits.  I was so busy I couldn't keep up and had to seek out third party help. After my second child, Baby Girl, life became super busy.  There is something about little girls clothes that makes them so much fun to create.  I started venturing out to more articles of clothing.  It has been a fun adventure. I am learning as I go.  I sometimes skip steps or take short cuts, sometimes I take a long road to get where I need to go.  I don't think sewing needs to be perfect, I think it should be fun!!
