OK, so I'm more than a bit excited about the upcoming Kid's Clothes Week. That's right, me who hasn't sewn a thing for my kids in seemingly ages (what's with all this selfish sewing, huh?) is getting my kid sewing mojo back.
To be honest, they don't need any more clothes. Not that I'll be put off by such technicalities. If I had got my head around Twitter/Instagram and all things hashtagged then I would definitely be playing along with Made For Kid's Month. Between Liesl's Oliver + S patterns and Rae's Flashback Skinny T I would have a picture of each kid for every day of the month.
I just want to sew along because it's Kid's Clothes Week. There's a great theme again. Last time it was mini-me (and I got to dress my daughter in brown, yay!), this time around it's Kid Art
As I'm typing this post, the glue is drying on some rubber stamps we made so that P can stamp gold stars all over some stretchy, polyester leftovers and I can make him some flared Nature Walk disco pants for a friend's birthday party on Saturday. We are on theme!
Not that you need to sew along with the theme. Sometimes you make some really straight up outfits and then the kids learn to dress themselves and every day is like another surrealist painting. All the right elements are there but in a completely unexpected place!
I'm super, super excited because this time round I'll be contributing to the Kid's Clothes Week blog. (stuck my hand up, and hey, look what happened!)
Check out my co-contributors at their blogs:
Sophie from C'est La Vie *
Kristi from SweetKM
Julie from Our Chez Nous*I love a blog that combines sewing inspiration with French homework practice!
Amazingly stylish, talented women, right?! I decided my talents lie not in knowing what's on trend, being abreast of patterns, fashions, or fabrics, but in getting completely and utterly carried away with the inspiration. Sounds like fun to me.
