day five: kcw october 2015

Welcome to day five of Kid’s Clothes Week! Today is the day I usually give my “it’s kid’s clothes week, not kid’s clothes take-the-weekend-off” speech. But I’m not going to, because you know. You know that you can find an hour each day this weekend. You know if you sit down to sew you are going to feel better. You know those hems aren’t going to sew themselves. You know you can do this.

Because when your kid wants to be a mailbox for Halloween, you know you are going to sew something that resembles a mailbox. Because how awesome is a kid dressed up as a mailbox?! Looks at all those smiles! Those are some happy kids in some fantastic handmade clothes.

I tend to flit from project to project: sewing a bit here, a bit there. So it’s about this time when I feel like I’ve been sewing and sewing and somehow have nothing to show for it. Then I’ll suck it up and sew a bunch of hems and tada! suddenly I’ve got finished garments all over the place! Do you sew like this during KCW or do you start a project and follow it all the way to the end? Either way I bet you have a little sewing to do!

    I LOVED the scavenger hunts more than previous ways to win. You had great companies to explore and it showed me around the sites and was less frustrating than commenting and following as in previous give aways. I have only gotten to sew one day this week because my machine is , but I really enjoy reading and following this season.
