Kids Clothing Week Day 1

Hello everyone!! Are you ready to get started sewing?!! I know I am! I spent the weekend cutting and measuring fabric to get myself ready. I also started working on my husbands Snorlax Bean Bag yesterday and I’m ALMOST DONE with it!! It only took me a year and 4 months! lol I’m glad this kids clothing week is getting me to challenge myself to finish that present for him!

Here are a couple pictures of my preparations:






The above photo are a couple of print outs I made to help me in the coming week. The one on the left I copied and pasted into a file from the Ultimate pillowcase post on Sew Like My Mom. The one on the right is to help me keep track of all the projects I make. I will just record them by pattern and color. I’m kind of OCD so this makes me feel like I accomplished something.

I’ll be back tomorrow, I hope, to show you some finished sewing projects. You can view my plans for KCW this year by visiting the post I wrote up last week. I plan on doing a lot of simple sewing so that I can get a lot done this week! It will help me get done with sewing projects I’ve been wanting to create for a while now and to feel like I accomplished something. I’m really excited to get started!

Thanks for stopping by! I’d love for you to leave a comment telling me what you’ll be sewing if you’re joining in on KCW or even if you’re not I’d love to hear about what you’re sewing or crafting this week!

  1. I need to get started on the pillowcase dresses! Last year the YW and I sent in 30+ dresses. We are sewing them again for mutual next month, but I need to do some myself! I am in a sewing funk! I need to get motivated!

  2. Well, I actually did a sewing project with my activity days girls last week, if you can believe that. They were beggggggging me. And I’m like, sighhhhhh. And it was nightmarish. But I did it. I did it. I know you’ll be proud. And yes, I had to re-read my sewing manual before I started again. I can’t remember anything. And I get in a panic. That is how much I hate sewing.

    1. LOL What did you make this time? You guys did posies before right? I kinda wish I was working with girls instead of boys, but it’s ok. 🙂 glad you got it figured out. I still need my manual sometimes:)
