kcw feb 2016: day three featured garments

1. j. crew knock off dress by Darcy 2. paper boat dress by Eva 3. toy soldiers by Tenille 4. spring in blue by Polly

Paper boat dresses and toy soldier shirts! I love the way you guys are playing with prints. Perfect for the theme and perfect for springtime too. Spring has sprung all over KCW–no matter the weather outside. Spring means pink! pink! pink! And there is lots of that in the project pool. And birds and princess kitties and bespectacled giraffes:)

Like clockwork every KCW, Wednesday comes around and your creative energy explodes. Maybe it’s the rush of finishing a garment, then suddenly you want to make another. Maybe it’s remembering that this really isn’t that hard and why was I putting it off anyway? Maybe it’s the sheer concentration of amazingness in the project pool–I must make ___fill in the blank___ after seeing that amazing ___fill in the blank___! Whatever it is, don’t stop!

day three: kcw april 2015

day three: kcw april 2015

Today is day three! Did you already find your hour to sew today? Or are you waiting until the wee hours (when the wee ones are sleeping)?

day three: kcw april 2015

1. pink snapper swimsuit by Ailsa 2. zebra bonnet by Toya 3. stripe retro shorts by Karly 4. panda love by Carin 

Only a few days into the week and already the project pool has exploded with awesome kid clothes. Every kind of WILD THING you can think of is represented! Pandas, eagles, zebras, bunnies, frogs, snapper, and cheetahs too. By the time the week is over, KCW will be a veritable zoo!

day three: kcw april 2015

1. frog pocket bimaa by Lindsey 2 eagle bimaa by Janelle 3. mingo chocolate by Mel 4. tangram jeans patch by Petra 

Your commitment might start to wane the third day. Resist! You just have to find one hour each day. It’s totally fine if you haven’t finished anything yet or if everything you’ve tried to finish has gone down the toilet. All that matters is that you sit down to sew (or cut or trace or pin) each day this week. The zoo wasn’t built in a day, after all.
