Sewing

Kids Clothes Week

Kids Clothes Week  If you read sewing blogs, or follow sewing boards on Pinterest, you would be well aware that this past week was Kids Clothes Week.   A fantastic challenge to get you sewing for an hour a day for seven days straight.  You don’t have to be a blogger to join in, but you could add photos throughout the week to the flickr group or tag photos on Instagram with #kidsclothesweek.

As soon as I read about it I thought, ‘I’m in!’  Now, with an almost two year old Little Miss and a nearly four month old Little Mister, an hour a day was not always possible.  But instead of not participating, I used it as an opportunity to get back to the sewing machine whenever I could, and to get something made!  I settled on making some cosy PJ pants for the Little Miss, using a tutorial from Dana at MADE. 

Super comfy

This tutorial was great – easy to follow and produced some super cute pants!  I’ve tried making pants before and did not have a lot of success.  I think the pattern was just not written in a way I got.  But this was great – I will be making more!  I’m so glad I joined the challenge even though I couldn’t do an hour every day.  It has fired me up and I can’t wait to get more sewing done.  And I feel quite pleased with myself, just quietly – the Little Miss really loves her pants!
