Project Under the Sea with Waves & Wild

Today we're so excited to have Sarah of Waves & Wild sharing her makes from the Project Under the Sea pattern collection!  

Project Under the Sea pattern collection

Here's Sarah:

 I was thrilled when Project Run and Play asked whether I could sew some Explorer Raglan T-Shirts, using fabric from the Telarie, as part of their latest collection and blog tour.

The collection is called Project Under the Sea. Thanks to the exciting new Little Mermaid movie I have been singing the song for weeks and there’s no danger of me forgetting the name of this collection. Project Under the Sea is a summer capsule wardrobe with 17 patterns for clothes, swimwear, accessories and plush toys.

With immense self-restraint, I decided that plain fabrics would be the best. They would show the shape of the pattern and the fun colour blocking option to their best advantage. So I sent Yondette the official Project Under the Sea colour palette and she sent me a parcel of delicious plain jerseys that were a pleasure to sew.

Jack is wearing a plain raglan and Charlie’s has the colour blocked sides. I made the plain necklines because that’s their preference. However there are options for a single or double snap neckline – perfect for babies with big heads or children who don’t like pulling tight things on over their faces.

Please head over to Waves & Wild for more photos and details!  And follow Waves & Wild on Instagram for more sewing inspiration.

Project Under the Sea with Sincerely, Shantelle

This collection is so much FUN and Lakeisha's kids are having a blast in their new Project Under the Sea clothes! We are so excited to finish out the week with Sincerely, Shantelle!

I was so excited to get into this project after a long streak of no-fun-sewing!” To jump start this collection, the kiddos needed new swimsuits. I went to the PRP design page at Raspberry Creek Fabrics and let me kiddos pick their fav swim/boardshort prints. They both chose many of the same prints, so they got coordinating swimsuits with some of our (now) favorite swim patterns.

I then shifted my focus to my sweet girl, to celebrate her while sewing, and also found some new favs to add to our pattern library, as well as experimented with some cool fabric. Check out my blog for all the fabric and pattern details, including how I hacked the Reef Top into a dress!

Project Under the Sea with Puzzle Patterns

 We're delighted to have Aimee of Puzzle Patterns sew up some things from the Project Under the Sea pattern collection!  

Reef Top and Seaside Shorts

So many fun patterns in the Under the Sea Collection and I am excited to be able to sew up a few and pretend its Summer down here in Australia - even though we've recently hit freezing temperatures! I had some fun with Suco by Susana's Reef Top and Seaside shorts. They are the perfect mix of fun and functionality! The top sews up so quickly and the girly top flounce is the perfect addition for my little Sass Queen. The shorts are a staple and I will be making many for our warmer months.

Morgana swim cover up

When I saw Call Ajaire's Morgana Zip up, I knew it was going to be a lifesaver for swim lessons and adventures to the beach. I used 2 towels and sized up one size (to make up for the lack of stretch in the towels) and it is now an outfit/coverall/towel that saves me time and space when toting 3 kids to swim lessons! you can read more about my process with that on my blog post HERE.

As usual the Project Run and Play collection was full of fabulous designs by talented pattern makers and lots of great accessories to accompany!
