Mommy and Me Sewing Projects

This Sunday is Mother’s Day. As much as I love giving my mom a gift, in recent years instead of buying her something, I’ve been finding things for us to do together, like working on a sewing project. This nice because it extends the time we spend together beyond just Mother’s Day, especially if we are making more in-depth projects like clothing.

For those mothers who have little ones, it is never too early to start sewing together. We have some great patterns that have options for both mom and daughter. In fact, I’ve picked three perfect spring patterns sure to get everyone running to the sewing room.

The Easy-On Apron and The Pint-Size Pinafore are perfect for some mother/daughter fun This classic aprons are perfect for cooking in the kitchen, playing outside, or wearing a fun, comfy topper over leggings or jeans.



There are few things as fun as getting dirty in the garden, whether you are just planting, weeding or just playing. Protect your skin from the sun with the Simple Sunbonnet and Reversible Sun Hat.

You won’t get soaked by spring and summer showers with your Partly-Cloudy Poncho and the Pullover Poncho. Don’t let have your kids have all the fun – you can splash in puddles too!

Did you know that some of your favorite Indygo Junction patterns are available as kits on Craftsy? Yep, we have paired with Craftsy and fabric companies like RJR Fabrics, Robert Kaufman and Free Spirit to bring you fun fabrics and great patterns.

Of course we had to start off with everyone’s favorite accessory, the 5-Way Wrap. Here, a Robert Kaufman herringbone flannel makes a chic statement, whether you are wearing it short or long.



Free Spirit fabrics paired this great Parson Gray print with our Contemporary Kimono pattern. This light jacket is perfect for summer – ready to pop on when the air conditioning gets too breezy.


For those of you who (like I do) love wearing skirt, this is the kit for you. We combined Amy’s Vintage Made Modern fabric collection with our Sidekick Wrap Skirt pattern to create a fun, pop of color for your outfit.


And of course, you can’t go out on the town without a great purse. How great does this batik from RJR Fabrics look in our Serged Satchel purse pattern?
