Peek A Boo Alex and Anna Summer PJ pattern review

Let me just start off my saying how much I love Peek A Boo pattern shop! 

I wish I could say it was an unbiased review but....it would be a lie.
I LURVEEE Peek a boo pattern shop:)


So lets get to it!






Pattern Description: Shorts and top pj pattern. Includes short-sleeved and tank style instructions.

Pattern Sizing:6mo-8yrs. For the record, in case you were wondering,
 they are sold all sizes in one pattern!

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Exactly like the pattern.

Were the instructions easy to follow?Extremely. Even if you have never sewn with knits it is a breeze.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?They come together very quickly expecially if your using a serger
I really like the instructions for attaching your bindings.Super quick and comes together so, so, so easy.

Fabric Used:The space ones are actually called Galaxy Scuba Knit from GirlCharlee, which is sadly no longer available. I hope it comes back! 
The other is a knit from NaturesFabrics.com in a bat print((Batman)). Both have regular knit bindings from JoAnns sew classic line.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:None, although in the future I may lengthen the legs on the shorts just a couple of inches for my beanpole legged child.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I will certainly be sewing more, I already have fabric for more!
Conclusion: 
I love PAB patterns and will probably be making some muscle tees for my monster with little patch pocket on the chest for normal summer wear soon.

Layer Cake QAL week #4

Still working on the QAL from MaterialGirl QAL



Here are my blocks for this week.



You'll have to forgive my pics being a little blurry.
 I did not realize that they were so blurry until after I uploaded them! ((Tired eyes from work))

The left image has the x and plus print by Allison Glass in Adobe and 
Trade Blanket in Steel by Parson Gray.

The right image has the x and plus print again by Allison Glass in Grass and 
Feathers in Indigo by Allison Glass.

I absolutely adore the Feathers line and wish I would have bought WAY more when the LQS close to me closed down!
