Kids Clothes Week - October!8:00 am
Tomorrow is the first day of this season of Kids Clothes Week!
SO, instead of sewing for KCW, I will be actually moving and unpacking and cleaning and changing the locks and trying to find which lightswitch turns on which light. It's okay though, I have a bunch of posts queued up as I actually did Kids Clothes Week LAST WEEK.
A lot of people ask me how I find time to sew *so much*.
During the day, I will randomly pull out a few patterns and look at my fabrics and mentally pair them up. If I have some spare time I will cut out a few things and stack them up in a plastic box well away from exploring hands. I have a four year old who is at Kindy on Mondays and Tuesdays (and every second Wednesday) and a one year old who is always by my side, so when I have time to myself I make the most of it. Sometimes I will sew during the day, but most times I will grab those stacks of pre-cut fabrics and start sewing them up when the kids are in bed at night.
If I have made the pattern before, I can sew it up quite quickly. I know how the pieces go and if it is a pattern I really like I will usually cut out two or three of it in different fabrics and sew them up like a little mini construction line.
Anway, I can't wait to look through all your Kids Clothes Week things this week! Even if you manage to sew one complete item, or a bunch, the main thing is you are sewing! Whether you are sewing for fall, or like me sewing for Spring, just sew! Check out the Kids Clothes Week site, make a profile and upload your projects there. Read the blog for inspiration, tutorials and round-ups of the best on the blogosphere. Most importantly though, just sew ^_^
