I thought I would share my final tally of clothes made and some things I learned from this challenge week.
- 4 bibs
- 1 appliqued onesie
- 1 birthday crown
- 1 pair of treasure pocket shorts
- 1 circle skirt finished and 5 waiting for elastic
I did not finish all the projects I had in mind, but I knew my list was a bit over-ambitious, especially considering how busy I was already. I liked having the push to get in my sewing room and work, even if just for a small amount of time. Those small times add up quickly. Next time I do the KCWC I want to be more organized before the week starts so I don’t waste time searching for patterns or have to stop my project because I don’t have all the needed tools. That was my biggest hangup. Overall, this was a very positive experience. It’s so fun to have an entire online community working on similar projects. I loved looking through the flickr group for inspiration! I am looking forward to KCWC Fall 2012!
What’s on my list now? Well I have some little boy vests to make for an upcoming wedding, but I think I’ll switch gears for a bit and sew for the home. I’m getting bored with my living room and see new pillows and a table runner in my near future. I also really want to figure out how to use that serger I got for my birthday last month! I’ll be sure to keep you updated on that progress 🙂 What about you? All you readers out there…anyone? Did you enjoy KCWC, wish you had participated, or have no interest in kids’ clothes?
