KCW day 1

It’s day 1! Which means it’s time to start sewing. What sorts of plans have you made for this season?  Or are you like me and winging it a bit?! Every time I make plans, I always get either overwhelmed or sidetracked. So this season, I’ve come up with a goal, to make one piece of clothing for each of my kids. With that said, I spent day 1 working on a project I cut out a little over a month ago. It was refreshing both to get it off my sewing table/queue and to finally sew something for the youngest!



I sewed up a geranium dress in a size 18-24m and I added about 2″ to the length. I used an double gauze (Echino I think?!) fabric that I grabbed from the imagine gnats shop, although it’s no longer available, there are some great prints and even solids that would also make great variations of this pattern.



Instead of doing buttons up the back (because I was trying to wrap this up before school pickup this afternoon), I tested out my kamsnaps kit that I purchased last year. I’ve been meaning to try out snaps for a while and just hadn’t gotten around to it yet. But I’m glad I took the plunge today, because it’s a lot less scary then I thought it would be.

And now… make sure you share your makes in the project pool! Here are a couple of the projects that popped up today. Can you tell I love blue?!? Having looked at these projects, I think I’ll go through my stash to pull out some blue fabric for my own next project 😉

happy sewing!

    Thanks for featuring my shorts! Is anybody else having trouble with viewing the pictures on the community site? I can’t see any of this season’s projects.
