New Pattern Alert!!

I was super excited to recently be involved in testing the newest pattern for Peek a Boo Pattern Shop. The Side Snap Body Suit pattern, was released this week as part of their lullaby line range designed for preemies up to 24 Months.

I chose to test the short sleeve, 12 months size and I am so happy with the final result.

Peek a Boo is one of my fave companies to test for as Amy, the owner is always so easy to communicate with and usually there are very minimal changes from the original version.

One of the other things I love when testing new garments is the opportunity to dive into some of my fabric stash. For this test I pulled out the planets fabric from Ruby Jam (check out my Sewing Buddies page for links) and also a cute Superheros fabric I picked up at Spotlight.

I also tried metal snaps for the first time on this test, and I can safely say I MUCH prefer plastic KAM snaps. I found the hammer on metal snaps cumbersome and not user friendly at all. Although, I did like the look, so perhaps I’ll persevere with them another time.

Theodore is becoming quite difficult to photograph for modelled shots now as well. He is on the move and zero interest in being a performing monkey haha. Even snacks don’t do much these days. For the whole time I tried to get photos of him in the planets suit, he became VERY attached to the blue Tupperware soup spoon. We just had to roll with it!

The pattern comes in A4, A0 copy shop size and projector formats, and is layered for ease of printing and projecting. As with all Peek a Boo patterns, the instructions are incredibly easy to follow. It’s is on sale for this weekend only, September 11/12, so if you want to grab it at a discounted price, click on my affiliate link below to get your copy.
