In fact, I’m gleeful about it! ;)

Her new line, Gleeful by Sew Caroline for Art Gallery Fabric’s Limited Edition Line, is exactly that. Bright, happy, and colorful!

I was most drawn to her Sun Springs print and thought it would suit my Natalie well. So, I requested some of it in knit…yes, some of the prints come in knit and voile!

Then I whipped up some MUCH needed summer pajamas for Natalie using Peek-a-boo Pattern Shop’s Alex and Anna Summer PJ’s pattern.

 Natalie, like all my kids, tends to grow tall rather than out, plus she is petite. So, I sewed up the 12 month size with 18 month length. It fits perfectly!

As the husband of a sew-er, he has a little bit more of a trained eye, so I took that as a great compliment not only to the pattern but also to the fabric.

Although the knit is light to mid-weight, it is GREAT quality with good recovery.

Even though this project is simple, the fabric really stands alone well, which is a testament to it’s great design. And Natalie has already worn these pajamas over and over and over again! She loves them and I love them!

See those dirty trampoline feet? She often likes to get some jumping in before bed. It wouldn’t be summer without some outdoor play in between bath time and bedtime.

Bonus points if you can tell how many Twizzlers it took for us to get through this photo shoot. I cut them in half, but still…Two year olds! ;)

I have some pretty good sized scraps leftover, so I am sure you’ll see this knit pop up again in future posts. ;)

    hmmm…I will take a wild guess and say 3 twizzlers. I totally understand the 2 year old thing! Mine is just a few months younger than Natalie. I absolutely love this fabric and will have to keep my eye out for it. We’re having our first girl in October (I get to use some of your nesting tutorials for the girly stuff now yay!), so this would definitely be fun fabric to have around.

    So cute! I have never been able to get the hang of sew much more than cotton in a straight line. And your daughter is so stinking cute!

    Little Nat is really looking like her brothers! So cute. I love that fabric and pajamas. We suddenly need summer jams here too. Awesome

      I know! More and more each day. My boys just wear knit shorts or their undies and call it good, but a girl has gotta have some summer jammies! ;)

  4. says

    Cute! And that’s a great compliment from Jared :)
    It’s fun to see what you did with the Sun Springs print. I made shirts for my girls….but now I sorta wish I’d done jammies! They look so summery and perfect :)

      Oh fun! I can’t wait to see them tomorrow. It is really a nice print isn’t it? …and the fabric quality surprised me. I don’t think I fully appreciated it either, until I sewed with it.

    That fabric is adorable! And Natalie… she is just darling. And I definitely understand the need for Twizzlers with a two-year-old… I just want to know how you kept her from smearing it all over her clothes! My two-year-old can’t eat anything without getting it on her clothes, in her hair, and spread out in 3 feet every direction from her. =/
    Two of my kids are 2-3 sizes taller than they are wide… I’m starting to think most sizes should just be skinnier. ;-)

      Dude! Mothers of bean poles unite! ;) Natalie is messy with some things like mustard…without fail…all over her clothes. But candy is hit and miss. Owen, however. He is a walking stain most of the time. ;) ha.
