My favorite thing about blogging is the group of fellow bloggers I have become friends with. It feels so great to be in a community that just loves to create. I have had so much positive interactions with fellow bloggers. A group of my blogger friends decided to do a mystery challenge this month. It is nice to have a blog post where there isn’t any pressure. It’s so nice to just create.
The challenge given to me was fruit. It took me forever to come up with an idea. I went through about 20 ideas before I finally found one to settle on. I had apples on the brain since it is almost apple picking season here. However, Miss G had something else in mind. She wanted me to do something with strawberries, that is when I remembered the book Stylish Sewing, that I picked up from the library.
There is a strawberry applique so I used that on Miss G’s shirt and pants. The pajama pants are the girls straight leg, regular width pattern. I added a cute little button tab and some piping at the bottom for decoration.
For the cushion I used the large strawberry pattern, meant for the bed linen set. I used piping around the front side and appliqued Miss G’s initial on the back.
Miss G is thrilled with this pajama set and I just love this pants pattern. They fit her perfectly. I will be using this one a lot more when cold weather gets here.
Make sure to go over and check out all the other awesome bloggers that are part of the Mystery Challenge. I love seeing everyone else’s takes on the subject they got.
