KCW Plans: What I Plan To Sew

Hello! My name is Celina and I blog over at Petit a Petit and Family, where I talk mostly about kids design in all it’s shapes and forms, as well as showcase some of my own creations and occasionally even share some tutorials and DIY’s.

I studied fashion design and had my own little label of kids up-cycled clothing, as well as a children’s boutique were I sold collections from small indie and local Montreal designers. I started my little blog back in february of 2011, when I decided to find a “real” full time job and give up on my dream of designing kids clothes. It wasn’t until a few months later, in May, where I discovered the KCW challenge and actually started sewing for my own kids and blogging about it. After that first time I was hooked, I looked forward to KCW all year, it never came fast enough!  All this to say, KCW is what has introduced me to the lovely sewing blog community and has actually made me want to sew for my kids. Until this spring, I sewed only when KCW came around and everyone in my house knew not to bother me or that we might be eating pizza every night that week! I take challenges very seriously.
