Back to School with PA Country Crafts

 Are you ready to be inspired?  Maybe you ought to sit down for today's top on the Back to School tour!  Lindsay of PA Country Crafts has brought her A game and she's winning left and right!  

Lindsay used patterns from the Project Run & Play shop and fabric from Raspberry Creek Fabrics to create these FUN looks:


Can you even handle the cuteness???  Here's some thoughts from Lindsay on these makes:

For a few years now I have wanted to create a mini capsule wardrobe for my youngest daughter. When the opportunity to join the Back to School tour came up I decided this was my chance! I picked out my favorite print in Raspberry Creek Fabrics’ back to school line and found a few coordinating solids. I really like adding my own details and embellishments to solid fabrics. Since the print I chose featured wildflowers I used the Wild and Free digital file to create hand embroidery on the Novella bib pocket. A floral stretch lace made a lovely accent on the hem of the Becky skirt. My daughter loves the sleeves on Indigo and a pair of Frances leggings made a super fast sew for more mix and match options. My daughter tends to stress out about matching her clothes and she is the only one of my daughters in elementary school now so she won’t have big sisters acting as fashion police. Hopefully the coordinating pieces will help to make this transition a little easier.

From left to right in the photo above, here are the pattern and fabric links so you can go copy her exact makes!!!
