Hang Ten Rash Guard

We've been featured! 

Back in my first post I shared pictures of the rash guards I made as a tester for Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop during Kids Clothes Week. Well the pattern was just released and we were featured. Yay!
Check out the listing for the Hang Ten Rash Guards. We are on page 2 of the pattern and page 4 of the listing pictures :)

Look at those handsome boys!

This pattern is very versatile and easy to sew. It can be made with short sleeves or long, side stripe or no stripe, and for a boy or girl! 

The waves on the black shirt is some embellishing that I added. Yes, you can totally applique on swimsuit fabric. Just make sure you have wooly nylon, or other stretchy thread, in your bobbin and use a narrow zig-zag stitch. If you are still nervous about sewing with swimsuit fabric? Don't have a serger? Then check out the video tutorial from that walks you through the steps. It is easier than you'd think!
