As some of you may know, I used to have an Etsy shop where I created little kids clothing and I have been yearning to create some clothes. The perfect opportunity arose when my beautiful niece needed some clothes for her trip to Universal Studios + Florida.
Mom chose to go the more traditional route and create the gorgeous set you see above - using nothing but fat quarters! Can you believe that? Check out those fabric combos - little Lia's nursery has these very color combos. The yellows, soft greys, and crisp white all create a cute + soothing color scheme (or so I'm told!).
I, on the other hand chose to let my geek flag fly and created her two drop waist skirts with a totes adorbs Harry Potter Quidditch theme fabric coupled with a yellow polka dot fabric for one and a blue stars fabric coupled with bright red and + yellow trim on the second one.
I then took basic onesies and added a bit of pizazz to them. The Harry Potter one was created using a Snitch graphic and the HP with the lightening bolt. I took those graphics and loaded them in to my Cricuit machine and made iron-on appliques with glitter vinyl. It really ended up looking great!
For the Wonder Woman outfit, I just added a store bought iron-on applique + then top stitched it for added durability.
So what do you think about these fabric combos? Would you like to see a tutorial for the skirts? Perhaps one for the snitch applique? Let us know in the comments section below.
