Sewing Mama RaeAnna Patterns: Valentine Cupcake Top and Pea Coat {and a discount!!}

Remember the so cute Cupcake Top that I tested for Sewing Mama RaeAnna? I still love that shirt. But, baby girl is growing and growing quickly. I am not sure how many more wears I can get out of this top! So that means, need to make some more! ;) You can go to her shop to get one.

Well, I got this cute little peacoat sweater for her for Christmas and I absolutely love the look of it and I  thought, "you know what? I could do some thing like this using this fabulous pattern from Sewing Mama RaeAnna! It had the ruffles on the bottom, and I thought having the ruffles on the sleeves would be cute.

For the Peacoat, I just cut two separate pieces for the front, but extended one side (the wrong side oops) 2 inches. I also cut out minky lining the same way, but opposite. I intended on doing ruffles for the arms and bottom, but instead it just seemed to work better with just the cuffs and waistband. She has worn it a few times so far, it is adorable over a dress!

For the top, the only thing I changed was the sleeves. Since we are still sitting in 70* weather here in the desert, it has been rather warm for long sleeves. I capped the sleeve. I also left the edge raw, I liked the curled look that it gave. I wanted to ruffle the sleeve, but decided to just go with the sleeve as it was.

I raw edge appliqued the heart. It's hard to do that when a little boy starts climbing onto the chair behind you, so it went a little crooked, but I love the character it gives it!

I haven't taken any pictures of her in it yet. I am going to make a pair of pants with ruffles on the legs to match. That and the poor thing has not been happy from her 6 month shots. She has only been happy being held, and had been comfort nursing constantly. Sunday was one of the first days that she was ok. So Nikolai and I went to the grocery store. Hurrah for a mommy and little man outing!

And now, for the fun part!
