Wow, friends. What an awesome week! I made a shirt that I adore and want to wear every single day; posted my first video to YouTube (How to Shop the LA fabric district); and we had some excellent guest posts here at CailaMade from Katie and Kari. Thank you ladies!!
And I’m REALLY excited about next week because next week blogger/sewing diva Elsie Marley is hosting the Kids Cloths Week Challenge. And because I obviously love and thrive on challenges, I’ve joined this year.
The challenge is to sew for your kids at least one hour every day for seven days. To be honest, that is NOT going to be a problem for me. I LOVE sewing for my kids. Now I just need to define my list and make sure I have all the supplies.
Ooh, I can hardly sleep thinking of it!
I asked Hudson and Abby what they wanted me to make them during KCWC and these are their requests:
- A cool shirt
- Pajama pants with bandaids all over them (Whaaat??? I’m thinking a stencil and fabric paint?)
- A hat
- “Make a pretty dress me, mommy?”
Have I mentioned yet that I LOVE HAND SEWING? Gosh, who knew it could be so soothing? I take my projects everywhere with me now. Hudson’s gymnastics, bible study, out to the hot tub while Brian and the kids take a warm dip. I forgot to take it to the park yesterday and then didn’t know what to do with myself while the kids played. Sheesh, I’m addicted.
