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.
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!
