Mommy & Me Valentine's Day Sewing Makes and Collaboration!

Hello and Happy Valentine's Day! Today's post is a special Mommy and Me Valentine’s Day look that I made for me and two of my three sons! I collaborated with Mari from Mari Sews on Youtube, and she is making her son a matching outfit too! You can find her here! We connected and thought it would be neat to sew ourselves and our children a mommy and me look and she and I decided to use Simplicity 8840 for our look! I used McCall’s 6873 for my oldest toddler and I used Simplicity 8759 for the baby boy! I think our makes turned out super adorable! If you would like to see my YouTube video where I show video movement and give a super detailed review, you can click here!

Below all of the pictures you will find pattern reviews for all three patterns that I made and many pictures of how we looked in our outfits!!!! Thank you for stopping by!
