Stashbusting with the Tumble Tee

Welp, I won this amazing giveaway, a tumble tee pattern and some fabric, from Bird&Bicycle just in the nick of time. I had gotten the call that the Pink Princess was in need of some new dresses for Kindergarden!!

Can I say I was just as excited about the packaging as
I was about the fabric inside?
The Tumble Tee by Imagine Gnats is a great kid's wardrobe builder. It's a basic tee pattern with built in sleeves for quick making. It can be used for both boys and girls and is easy to colorblock however you please.
Sorry for the lack luster photo shoot. We were getting tired of
standing in our braces so it was "get it done quick time"

I used size 3T and added a pile of length to keep those long legs covered this winter. The pink knit came from my stash and her mom had the perfect grey and magenta stripe fabric to go on the top. This dress sewed together so quickly you didn't even realize it was done before it was done!
I plan to get plenty of use out of this pattern since the size range is so great. The not-nieces and nephew will be getting this for a long time...
I don't know what else to say because it was such a simple and easy experience.

How's sewing for kids going for you?

PS. I made a last minute decision to join in on the Selfish Sewing Week going on. I don't know if I'll get to spend an hour everyday but I'm going to try to set some time aside to work on some projects for me. Friday is our local sewing day so I'll get a whole day of me sewing in then.
