Tomorrow kicks off Kids Clothes Week, a challenge where you sew for your kids one hour a day for seven days. In the past I have participated passively. This is the first time I’m challenging myself to do the whole thing and submit my projects to the Kids Clothes Week site.
I usually start with lofty goals and complete about half the days. The first day gets approached with gusto. The second day after working a full day, dinner, then my turn for kiddo bedtime, I’m usually faced with one of my non-preferred sewing tasks. It’s hard to get excited about taping together a pattern after a long day. I end up skipping out and then the week ends with me getting in three good sewing days.
This time I’m trying something different. Baggies!
Here is a rundown of what I will sew this week. I have some super easy projects for nights I can only fit an hour. I have some more time intensive projects for nights I don’t do bedtime.
1. Climbing the Willow Izzy Top – This is an unfinished project I’ve been dragging out for a month. I just need to complete the skirt and attach to the bodice.
Very Shannon Sally Dress – This is such a cute summer dress with elbow sleeves and huge pockets for treasures.
See Kate Sew Recess Raglans – It’s April in Texas and we have no short sleeve T-shirts that fit.
Shwin and Shwin Apple Loungewear Tops – I cut out four of these. I made them extra long so they can be sleep shirts. This is another critical need as the long T-shirts I was using for this purpose, now show belly.
Modkid Cece Dress – This is going to be the Easter dress. Bunnies and Bows!! I have not cut this out yet but plan to get to it this evening.
I’m not sure if I will make it through everything but I am excited about the prospect of trying. I will cover the projects in more detail as I get them finished up.
