Here we are again with Made for Mermaids and Patterns for Pirates, bringing you inspiration for what to sew for Valentine’s Day! My husband and I don’t do much to celebrate this holiday, sometimes we’ll go out, but never on the actual day! 😉 But my mom always left us gifts on the breakfast table on Valentine’s day, and I loved that little unexpected (even though she did it every year) gift. You’re still kind of coming off of the Christmas high, and at least I wasn’t looking forward to a birthday for several more months, so it always felt special. So I like to do the same thing for my kids. Having children makes things more magical, especially holidays. I love to make this one fun, just like the rest. So we usually bake and decorate sugar cookies, we also usually make lots of cards, and go crazy with the stickers and glitter.
I knew my Valentine’s attire would be casual, since I’m spending the day with my kids. I used Made for Mermaids Mama Ava since it’s the perfect silhouette to be comfy, but with gorgeous fabric, you don’t feel sloppy! I also wore the Peg Legs from Patterns for Pirates. I think these are one of the best beginner projects, and they give you such impressive results! (I was on day 2 of wearing these, so all I can see are the baggy knees, but they really fit so perfectly!)
And then, because it’s fun, I put on a little more make up, some jeans and heels, and made it the perfect outfit for a casual dinner with my husband. That’s as fancy as we get anyway 🙂
My fabric for this shirt is double brushed poly, from Raspberry Creek Fabrics. I love the tighter pattern of the floral, sometimes when the floral is more in clumps, you have to worry about pattern placement more, but this one is so gorgeous, and I love the colors! My leggings were double brushed poly from So Sew English.
I think Valentine’s day is top of my favorite holiday list. I love every happy thing about it! I’m planning what to sew for my kids, and I’ll share that soon.
