A is for Aylah: CKC Sew the Alphabet

Remember when I said I don’t do resolutions?

Well, this is where I find myself at the beginning of a new year… Signing up for yet another challenge.

I attempted this one last year with CKC’s ABC character sew-a-long. and you saw I made it all the way to letter C! Super impressive, no?

Well, since I did so well last year in following through with my Hexie temperature quilt… I am going to try another challenge as well.

One of my favorite pattern companies is having an alphabet sew-a-long … They have a schedule where every two weeks a letter is posted & participants sew a pattern that begins with that letter.

My personal goal is to sew one of their patterns that I own, but have not sewn up yet. Yes, that means I have probably every letter of the alphabet in patterns of things I have yet to try and sew. Don’t judge me.

For A I chose Aylah’s Knit Twirly Skirt because it is an awesome stash buster for me, and after last weeks 52 weeks sewing challenge, I found a lot of scraps I need to bust.

I had some help with this: I asked Georgia if she wanted to help me make her a new skirt… This girl. If you are a personal friend of ours or you have followed LadyBeez business, our children have been modeling for me their whole lives…

This one, however, certainly has the posing thing down. On top of that she is quite the little designer. So apart from me actually sewing this together, she picked out and arranged all the fabrics.

Oh this mama’s heart. It’s so bittersweet watching your little girl grew up before your eyes. I wish I could freeze time……
