Project Run & Play Week 1: Put Me in the Zoo

Sometimes when you launch a new blog you have grand plans for your first post.

Sometimes when it’s time for Project Run & Play you have the perfect idea for a little girl’s outfit.

Sometimes you even have a model lined up to wear said outfit.

Sometimes your kids even nap at the same time for you.


Sometimes you’re not ready when the blog is.

Sometimes you don’t have everything sewn you had planned on.

Sometimes your kids are sick and you decide you’d rather not pass it on to your cute little model.

Sometimes you spend 60% of nap time with your seam ripper and the skirt you just serged on backwards.

And in spite of all…
