Run, Jump, Throw



My little girls are following in big sister's footsteps and are exploring the world of Track & Field.  Two of K's high school coaches run a track club during the summer for kids 5-18 years of age.  Practices are held 3 nights a week and it's been very hot here.  The girls had several athletic t-shirts but 100 degree weather really calls for tank tops.

  3. The running and the sewing are both so inspiring, Cindy! Both tops are lovely but I especially like the lilac / grey.

    1. Thanks, Catherine.:) The lilac and grey is my favorite too. I didn't get a close up of it but I used a purple variegated thread for the topstitching. It looks really neat!

  4. Awesome photos! You're such a nice mom to make them tank tops & they sure are troopers to be doing track & field in 100 degree temps!

    1. Thank you, Colette! I pored over all my patterns because I wanted a tank top that wasn't fitted all the way. I figured a little looseness would be cooler and the fact that this one is free is a definite bonus!

      Track & Field wasn't even on my radar until K started middle school. But I've come to really like it. After spending the first part of today at the little girls' track meet, we spent part of the afternoon watching the USATF Outdoor Championships marveling at how fast the competitors are. It's amazing what the human body is capable of!

  6. That sounds like a great introduction to track. I'm sure K is pretty inspiring to them!

    Very nice tank tops - a little fancier than usual (:

  7. I really like the style of these tank tops with the yoke and slight gathering - cooler than fitted tops, although at 100º I'd be finding excuses not to go. You're a great mum to take them!!!

  8. The tops look perfect for them, and I hadnt seen that pattern before. I'm sure your training/running has been inspiring them too :-)

  9. These are awesome! Way to hack it into a tank, that was smart! They predicted 100 degree temps here and everyone freaked out (it only got to the low 90s though, phew). You're all champs for dealing with that heat!

  10. Such concentration on their little faces!! Poor things in the heat though!
    Great tanks for them, I especially love the back gathering. Free is always the best kind of pattern, too!

  11. They look great Cindy even with those little beetroot faces! Thanks for the heads up on what looks like a super pattern.

  12. Great tank tops, Cindy! 100 degree weather?! And doing track in that? Wow, dedication. (It's actually supposed to be 36 degrees C here tomorrow which is getting pretty close to 100 F but you can believe I won't be running around in it!)

    1. Thank you, Nicole! The girls had a great experience with summer track and both qualified and competed at the Junior Olympics in August.:)
