Flashback May: The White Sheet Challenge with Christina from Two Little Hooligans

Hi, I am Christina from 2 little hooligans and I am so excited to be back here at Project Run and Play today. Project Run and Play honestly changed me as a sew-er. Prior to competing in PR&P I had only sewn a few articles of clothing which mostly consisted of basic peasant style dresses. I still remember when I was asked to compete, I was completely terrified...and then I got sewing. I quickly learned how to make a dress with a bodice and I haven't stopped sewing clothes for my kids ever since. So thank you so much Liz and Elizabeth for asking me to compete in season 5. It pushed me to limits I never thought I could reach!
 
For Flashback May I decided to recreate The White Sheet Challenge. Here are my last White Sheet Challenge Outfits. Last time I kept my sheet white so this time I decided to dye it. I let my little girl decide what color she wanted and of course she chose her favorite color, blue.

I had planned on recreating this dress because she has outgrown it and it was one her favorites. However she really wanted another romper. I recently made her the Marina Romper by Cali Faye and she just loves it! And apparently she really wanted another one. What I learned quickly about making clothing for my kids is that if they do not like it, they will not wear it. And for me, it is a waist of time and money if they will not wear it.

I love that my kids wear and are proud of their "momma made it" clothes and I want to keep it that way. So if I have to create clothes per their request sometimes, then that is what I will do. Plus I cannot help but love this pattern as well. It is such a classic looking romper that goes together so fast!

So unfortunately there were no new or inventive designs made here, instead I made one little girl pretty happy.

  1. I love rompers, and I'd love to make this one for my granddaughter, along with that adorable sun visor you made, too! I can also see this over a T shirt and heavier fabric for central Florida winters!

  5. In my books making one girl very happy is the best reward for spending time and resources sewing :) She looks so cool and happy with her little guitar! Loved reading how competing made you fall in love with sewing more and pushed you to get more adventurous :)
