day seven: kcw feb 2016

The last day of Kid’s Clothes Week is here! Are you covered in bits of thread and fabric? Up to your eyeballs in laundry and dirty dishes? Proud that you carved out a little time each day to sew? I’m guessing the answer is, “yes, all of the above.”

In this world of 2 dollar t-shirts, sitting down to cut, iron, hem, sew our kids’ clothes is a bold act. People who don’t sew may think you are a bit odd, but they don’t know the satisfaction of setting a snap, or the joy of an automatic buttonholer, or having a neckline turn out perfectly, or making clothes that fit your kids bodies and personalities just right. Making time in your life for this creative and revolutionary feet is worthy of much praise. Pat yourselves on the back! You are making gorgeous clothes for your kids and sticking it to the man!

It’s so wonderful to have this KCW community where people don’t think I’m odd for spending my time sewing kid clothes. Head over to the project pool and  pat everyone on the back with a comment or two, telling them how amazing their creations are. And if you haven’t uploaded your garments yet, do! I want to feature all the fabulous stuff you made on the big KCW round up post next week.

    I love KCW and am a bit sad it’s over.  Though maybe I’ll find some time tonight after the kids go down to sew up one last thing. Thanks so much for the feature!

    I’m a bit sad it’s over as well, especially since now I don’t have any more excuses to neglect the house 😉
    Thank you for the feature!
