Violets & Jewels & Project Farmer's Market

Today we have Rachel of Violets & Jewels sharing her creations for the Project Farmer's Market lookbook.  She sewed up 4 of the patterns and one of the freebies too!!!


Everything about this collaboration with Project Run and Play is great, you get to see the different takes that each designer has about one theme.  All the behind the scenes work to even create the look book is amazing.  All the talent that went in on this... ( I still can’t believe that I am apart of it.) I can't wait to get started on the other patterns that are available.  I need more time during the day to sew!  I hope you all have enjoyed following along as I have.  Please head over to Violets and Jewels to read more about all these garments I sewed.

Mabey She Made It & Project Farmer's Market

Today we have Lisa of Mabey She Made It sharing her creations for the Project Farmer's Market lookbook.  She made an incredible contribution to the lookbook with these patterns...how many of them do you recognize?


The Farmer's Market collection is such a fun way to create a capsule for a single child or for a group. I had so much fun creating a look for all three of my girls that coordinated and yet fit their personalities perfectly (and I used six of the 10 patterns to do it!)  These would make perfect family photo outfits since I can add in an outfit for my son from the same collection and it takes all the stress of planning outfits away since you already know the pieces work together seamlessly. 

Please head over to Mabey She Made It for lots more photos and thoughts about these patterns!

Audrey for Project Farmer's Market


Hi, I’m Audrey the leader at Project Run & Play.  Since taking the lead, it had been a goal of mine to tap into the tremendous amount of talent represented among the role of past Project Run & Play designers in the form of collaborations.  One aspect of every Season is competition, and my dream was to show how these amazing women could work together to produce even greater things than they could individually.  It’s with great, great pride that I’ve been able to be a cheerleader and coordinator of this Designer Capsule #1: Project Farmer’s Market.


As a mother to nine kids, children’s wear sewing is something I love to do often!  One of my very, very favorite things to sew are button up shirts.  They are so very rewarding when they’re finished, and the classic lines never go out of style.  With that in mind, I designed and (with the help of an amazing tester team) brought the Rosemary & Thyme Shirts into fruition.  (You can check out all the tester versions here.)  They are woven popover-style shirts with a band collar.  Each has a couple of fun sleeve options, and the Rosemary has a few feminine details.


The Rosemary & Thyme Shirts are the 1st exclusive Project Run & Play pattern.  They are classic woven tops worth sewing just as they are.  But the lines are clean and useable as the building block for many great garment creations as Project Run & Play designers and fans love to do!


The Rosemary & Thyme Shirts are unique in that they are designed on 3 different size blocks with boy & girl shapes and ages in mind.  Sizes 1-6X are a unisex block and a perfect fit for boys and girls both.  The Rosemary Shirt in sizes 7-14 is a tween girl block and a perfect fit for those changing years.  The Thyme Shirt in sizes 8-16 is a tween/teen boy block ideal for the growing male.  Watch for more exclusive Project Run & Play patterns to come in the future!

Stay tuned for next week when more Project Run & Play designers will share their creations from Project Farmer's Market!
