Today is my stop on the Red, White and Pink Blog tour hosted by Sewing by Ti. As you could probably guess, I made something pink for Baby Girl! I used some fuchsia double brushed polyester from Simply By Ti and some Doodles Butterfly fabric from Joann Fabric to create a super cute butterfly shirt. I used the Ellie and Mac Unisex raglan sewing pattern. Found out how you can get it on sale in the Get Ready for Spring Blog Tour!

I have been hoarding this butterfly fabric from Joann Fabric for quite a while. I have been trying to figure out what to make with this doodles fabric. Most of the doodles knit selection has a lot of stretch, however it lacks in recovery. So, I decided to use it for the sleeves of Baby Girl’s raglan. It worked out really well.
For Baby Girl’s last birthday, I made her a 3D butterfly dress. I used this 3D butterfly embroidery pattern. Recently, I posted the image of her dress in an embroidery group on Facebook. The big question that was asked, was what would happen to the butterfly if you wash it?? So, curious me, had to find out. So I attached at 3D butterfly to the bodice of this shirt (before sewing it together). Then, I washed it! Guess what, it looked just fine afterwards. Yay! I was not brave enough to run it through the dryer though.
After, I air dried the bodice, I went through my fabric and found the butterfly fabric and I knew it would be an amazing match! You may find it here. I absolutely love them together. I decided to add some svg to her shirt, as the bodice was looking a little bare with just the butterfly.
Baby Girl’s shirt reads “What if fall? Baby Girl, What if you Fly?” I always love positive and empowering shirts for my littles. Although, she is already bit of a dare devil. Little Dude is very cautious; Baby Girl is exactly the opposite. I love seeing their own personalities come through. What is that you said? You want the svg file for free? Okay… Just click here and it will download! Let me know if the comments how you plan to use it! You can find some great glitter htv here!
We had some random upper 70 degree weather today, so we took advantage by playing outside. Baby Girl kept asking me to push her higher and higher on the swing! Her gymnastics couch would have also been proud of the airplane arms, she decided to practice on her own.
There may have also been some bribery during this photo shoot today…..
Since, Baby Girl tolerates me taking so many pictures of her, especially lately; I do give her treats at times. We made it fun today. We enjoyed our random day of warm weather. Unfortunately though, Baby Girl and I are both a little sick, so she was tired out easily and wanted to go back inside. We will try to go outside again after her nap, if I am able to get her down for one. Wish me luck!

Thank you Rachel! You are so kind!
This is a great pattern and I’ve been thinking of getting it too!! Isn’t it great when the fabric you’ve been hoarding is just perfect from your project! The pics are so cute!!
You should get it! I love it. I have used it for both of my kids. It is! I wanted to make her some matching joggers too, but ran out of time. Hopefully it will happen soon.
I love the butterfly
Thank you so much!!
