Kids Clothes Week is coming to an end, and I wanted to jot a few of my thoughts on this week.
Here are the things I have taken away from KCW:
- It has been so nice sewing for my kids. As I have spent an hour (or hours) each day sewing for the kiddos I have been reflecting on them and praying for them. I need to do that more often.
- I love sewing for my kids and want to do more of it while they still like my handmade goods. Amazingly they have loved everything I have made them this week.
- Alright, here is my one bad thing. I cannot be an everyday blogger. It has been great to share with you all of my creations, but I put way too much pressure on myself to do this daily. Next week, I will be back to blogging once or twice a week.
Are you ready now for my last KCW item? I made Bubba some shorts. I simply traced around a pair of shorts he owned and actually used a pattern piece from Sweet Pea’s blue floral shorts for the pockets. These shorts are just…okay. The fit isn’t perfect, the pockets are a tight squeeze for Bubba to put his hands in, and overall, I’m just not in love. After finishing them, I decided to buy Dana’s new shorts pattern. At only $6 I couldn’t justify trying to fix my self drafted pattern! I’ve already printed the pattern out and have started taping it together.
These last two shots, you can see Bubba watching a storm roll In…poor boy was nervous!
