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.

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 :).

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!!
