Am I the only one that’s missing the lazy days of summer? It seems to me like once school starts it’s full speed ahead! Halloween comes quickly, then Thanksgiving, and BAM! It’s Christmas! I’m grateful to have a little headstart on my holiday sewing thanks to Raspberry Creek Fabrics.
The new CLUB Christmas prints hit the shop last week and are on sale for $1 off per yard through tomorrow, Friday October 19th. These 12 prints are available on our favorite 95/5 cotton lycra jersey and french terry knits. My kids are spoiled and having grown up in CLUB knits they reach for their CLUB makes over and over again.
I loved playing with these gorgeous blue and grey french terry prints. My sister and I sewed up coordinating looks for these cute cousins. Little Edie got a Skiff Tee from Jennuine Designs (a great pattern for scraps and color blocking!). My Charlie is sporting a Constance Sweater from Sew A Little Seam and his best smolder and big sis is also wearing a Constance.
How cool is it to be able to use the same pattern for two different looks for both a boy and a girl?! I sure love this pattern!
For this girl look I used this Snowflake French Terry. I did the puff sleeve, hood, and kangaroo pocket all at her request. It’s so fun to sit down with this pattern and let them choose exactly the look they want. She’d been dying to recreate her favorite rtw hoodie and this one totally fit the bill.
I added a little premade vinyl I picked up at Michael’s for the perfect little bling!
I love that this print is great for the holidays but will also work well into spring too. I love it layered over a chambray button-up and just might have to copy this look for myself.
My favorite thing to make with CLUB jersey is pajamas. They are the ultimate in comfort- soft, breathable, and they hold up so well to multiple washings each week. They’re the first pj’s my kids reach for and the perfect use of all those fun prints they love. These Christmas pj’s will be an instant favorite for sure (she may or may not be going on wearing these two days in a row ;))
I love to use tried and true patterns to create pajamas. I used our beloved Camden Raglan from Hey June Handmade paired with our favorite Love Notions Leggins for an easy, quick outfit. This darling Christmas Dot paired with the basic green stripe and red jersey made such a cute combo.
I’m so excited that Raspberry Creek is adding new base options to their CLUB line. These three prints are available on double brushed polyester and poly rayon spandex french terry.
The double brushed polyester Deer Buffalo Plaid was perfect for these girls. My oldest daughter has a severe obsession with all things buffalo plaid and immediately requested this print as soon as she saw it. She was thrilled to match her little cousin.
My daughter is also sporting Love Notions Leggins. They fit her perfect and worked great for this fabric. The negative ease in this pattern isn’t as much as other patterns I’ve tried meaning that this fabric doesn’t get stretched super thin across her hips. The drape of this base is also perfect for flowy dresses like the Groove Dress from MadeIt Patterns.
The hi-low option of this dress is just too cute! And your girls will just love the twirl factor!
Lastly, I got to sew up this gorgeous floral print in double brushed poly. It’s so pretty and was perfect for a Li’l LDT Dress for Sophie. I love this colorway on her! We did the bishop sleeve, cowl neck options of this pattern and think it’s the perfect seasonal transition look.
Isn’t that subtle lace background divine?!
Are you already sewing for Christmas? Are you one of those crazy ladies that frantically sews EVERYONE matching pj’s (yep, I’ve been there!)? Make sure you grab your fabrics on sale through Friday. Excited to see all your holiday makes!
