How adorable is this Princess Rapunzel knit fabric? Look at me, trying out a new fabric company! I rarely buy custom fabric, as I am not always sure of the quality. I do not mind paying extra for great fabric. I have tried a few different companies and a few did not pass my quality test, especially after washing. However, I washed and dried this gorgeous pink and purple Princess Rapunzel fabric by It’s Sew Creative and it still looked amazing.

The Princess Rapunzel Knit fabric from It’s Sew Creative comes also in the same design in woven. There is also Elsa, Cinderella, Belle, and Snow White fabric with matching faux sparkle fabrics! You may find them all here! Please do not my Princess obsessed daughter, she will want all of them. LOL!
Many times, I search for fabric for a pattern that I would like to make. This time, however I could not decided what to make until I had the actual fabric in my hand. When I saw it, I knew it needed to be a ballet leotard. Baby Girl just recently started taking ballet classes and she loves it.
So I went on the search for the perfect ballet leotard sewing pattern. I really wanted one with a skirt option. Then I found the Ocotillo Leotard Sewing Pattern by Honeydew Kisses. You may find it here! It was perfect.
The Girls Ocotillo Ballet Leotard Sewing Pattern has so many options as well. I chose short sleeves with a scoop back. You may also choose from sleeveless, ruffle sleeve, long sleeve, and there is even a razor back option. You will love it, go grab the Ocotillo here.
There is a highly recommended option to line the ballet leotard sewing pattern, however I did not. One, I was in bit of rush to get her ballet leotard finished before ballet class. Also, I felt the Princess Rapunzel Knit Fabric by It’s Sew Creative was thick enough it did not need to be lined.
I did make the Ocotillo Girls Ballet Leoatard sewing pattern in a slightly larger size, since I want here to be able to wear it for a long time. With this adorable Princess Rapunzel knit fabric, I knew was going to love it.
Of course, I looked at my scraps and felt she needed more….
So, I made her some girls leg warmers! I have been wanting to make her some leg warmers for a long time, so I again went on a search for a girls leg warmers sewing pattern. You may also make leg warmers from socks too, you can see my tutorial here. This time I wanted to make real ones! The Abby’s Trailblazing Socks sewing pattern (here) by The Wolf and Tree had the perfect girls leg warmers option. They girls leg warmers sewing pattern was so easy and quick to make, plus it is a bonus it is also a great scrap buster.
Speaking of scrap buster… At this point, I still had some scraps left and I also had a sewing pattern I have been meaning to try for quite awhile!
Insert the Be Posh Headband Pattern! Yes a headband and bow sewing pattern by Ellie and Mac! (Here). The Bow sewing Pattern was also a super simple and quick scrap busting sewing pattern. You may see lots of matching bows in this little girls future :). It also has an adult size option, so maybe even a few for me as well :).
Does the outfit not look absolutely adorable all put together? She did not want to take it off! Okay, so I may have to buy some more princess fabric from It’s Sew Creative! (here) She even just lounged around on her favorite pink sofa.
Of course Baby Girl decides to give me the cutest ballet poses when the lighting was not great, but I am still going to show them to you, because she is just too cute!
