Kid’s Clothes Week

Kid’s Clothes Week is right around the corner. This year the week for the spring challenge is April 7-13. Yes please! Sew the week of my birthday? Try and stop me!!

To sum the challenge up: sew clothes for kids, 1 hour a day, for seven days.

Pretty simple! And the whole process counts. The pattern tracing, the fabric cutting, and the almost inevitable seam ripping!

And an exciting edition to the challenge. A first ever theme. MINI ME!

I’m sure my mini me’s don’t need maternity clothes. But, currently, my basic wardrobe is maxi skirts (so comfy!) and tanks or tees. Yes. Yes I do live in Alberta. Yes. Yes it did just snow the other day. I don’t care. It’s comfy. The heating company can just take all my money. I’m thinking of t-shirt maxi dresses for the girls. But I could change my mind before then.

The other awesome aspect about the timing of this challenge, besides spending my birthday week happily locked in my sewing room, is that the second annual Fabulous Fabric Frenzy is April 5. Hello fabric at $1/meter!

About manningthemachine

I'm Laura. Mama to four, and wife to one awesome guy. I'm ever so slightly sarcastic. Just a little bit. I like to quote movies, but since our house is managed by little people, most of those quotes come from kiddie shows. At least my husband generally gets the references. It makes me feel less awkward. I took sewing lessons starting at the age of 8, through the Kids Can Sew program. I took lessons for four or five years. Then I became a snotty teen and decided sewing was lame. I've repented of my ways, and enjoy sewing for my little ones. And sometimes other people. And almost never for myself. Oh hey. My blog name. "Manning The Machine." I think it's probably only funny if you know me in real life. And even then, maybe it is only funny to me. My last name is Manning. This is a blog about my sewing. Manning The (Sewing) Machine. Do you get it? Do you? No. That's fine. I think it's funny even if you don't.
