Short Sleeved Lane Raglan and Double Needle Discussion

I am still finishing up a few Lane Raglan shirts. I have mentioned before that I really love this pattern. 

I purchased both the striped and the gold dot fabric at Hobby Lobby. I had a small amount of the gold dot fabric left after making this Lane Raglan.

Travel Phase

A lot of Instagram posts have been about #memademay this month. The goal is to wear handmade clothing every day of May. The past years, I've not had enough handmade clothing to begin to wear one piece every day. I've also not really liked what I've made.

This year is different. I've worn a handmade item every day! I can't believe it. They've all been the recent Lane Raglan shirts I've shared, plus two that haven't been photographed yet. I'm still fooling with the neckline on one of them.

In the meantime, here is a striped long sleeve version I made at the beginning of the month. I didn't think I'd get a chance to wear it much till fall, but it's been cold and I've worn it frequently. I've been attending baseball or t-ball games and practices many evenings.

Fire Truck Print PJ Shorts and Shirt

My kids don't wear clothing that I pick out for them. They prefer hand me downs from friends who are older. However, I still like to make them PJ's because I know they will wear them. I usually make pjs for the oldest child and then they are handed down, but I decided to make some for the middle son a few weeks ago. I got this fabric at Hobby Lobby and knew it would be perfect for my boys! 

This is the pattern called Coastal Craze Baggies, which is one of my favorites. I have made it often! See herehere and here
