June's Pattern is....

Summer is upon us and I don't know about you, but my kiddos LOVE to dress up. Especially my girl. We spend a lot of time inside in the summer (we live in Vegas), so having fun activities for them to do is important to having a successful summer. Whether she has friends over or just dresses up her brothers and sister and stuffed animals :), she is in 12 outfits every day! This pattern is great because it allows you to put the dress on over clothes, so it works for winter, summer and everything else in between. The pattern to use for this month's Sew Along is Kiki and Company's take on the DIY Frozen Elsa Dress.

It comes in 3 easy steps and could be customized and changed in so many ways to make your daughter's (or granddaughter's, nieces, friend, etc) favorite.

You can see how I changed up the pattern just a bit to make my daughter a Cinderella Ball Gown...because you can't just make one! I am sharing the changes I made to the dress on my blog this week, so come on over to get some ideas!

For any little girl who LOVES princesses or dressing up, this DIY is for you! It's quick and simple and can be changed and customized to fit any size as well as any princess (or heroine, etc). I can't wait to see all the details that you add to yours!

Designers: Where are they now? Kiki from Kiki Creates


Hi everyone! I am so excited to be around here this month at Project Run and Play. I'm Kiki from Kiki and Company and I competed in season 4 of the competition. What a fun experience it was to really dig into my sewing and meet so many incredible people. I really think the sewing world is SO supportive and just love being inspired by all of you. Since competing, I have had an awesome few years DIY-ing (though I'm going to dig more into that this summer), designing (this is where a bulk of my time has gone) and when I find a little extra time, I get a sewing project done. Sewing is my happy place. As a graphic designer, mother of 5,wife of a VERY busy man and blogger, I don't have a lot of extra time, but I can tell you that those nights where I stay up till 3 am sewing my little heart out are VERY good nights. I always wake up refreshed and ready to take on life. Can any of you relate?!

My biggest accomplishments though still lie with these 5. When I competed in season 4, I had just had my 4th baby (he was just 2 months old) and I didn't know how life could get busier, so when I found out I was pregnant 8 months later, I found out that it really could. ;) Definitely in a good way though! They certainly keep me on my toes, they keep me reaching for my dreams and goals and they keep those smiles coming to my face. It's a good life I have.

I hope you sew right along with me this month and the pattern I am sharing. Truth be told, I ADORE SEWING, but I don't feel nearly qualified to be the Designer of the Month. I hope you will humor me and get your sew on as I will be sewing along with you. (I have 2 more projects to make and photograph before the month is over...at least that is what my goal is!) Thanks for being the inspiration you are...I love looking at all of the amazing projects that have come out this year and look forward to getting to know you this month. Come say hi on Instagram or Facebook, Pin along with me on Pinterest or come and shop for some fun pieces for your home in my shop! xoxo

Our Designer for June is.....

The designer for the month of June is Kiki from Kiki and Company.



Kiki is one of those people who not only is wonderful on the internet but is also wonderful in real life.  We have had the opportunity to meet Kiki in person and even though we've only been able to visit for a few minutes each time it has never been long enough.  Kiki is sweet, and fun and friendly and we hope that our next meeting will be for a much longer time!

Aside from being fantastic Kiki also is super talented.  With a great sense of style, mad sewing skills, and her beautiful photography Kiki is a blogger that is fun to follow!  We are so excited to have her join us this month.



(And if you haven't checked out her blog yet....you really really should!)
