This coming week is Kid's Clothes Week Challenge over at Elsie Marley. I participated last year but I was not as accustomed to sewing daily then. Now, sewing everyday is pretty typical for me. I have been very blessed in the last year, my etsy shop has done very well. Better then I even hoped for a year ago. Of course, along with my shops growth my dreams for my shop has grown. :)
The challenge is to sew kid's clothing for at least one hour per day everyday from the 23 - 30. Since I sew kids clothes pretty much daily anyway I enhanced the challenge for myself to sew clothes for my kids at least one hour everyday. I figure I will sew any orders for my shop and then an additional hour of things for my kids. I am really excited about it. I have lots of ideas/plans about what I want to make for my kids but I seem to regularly end up putting them off.
So what is on my list?
For Big Brother -
a pair of Star Wars pajamas
a pair of Star Wars shorts - to match this dress
an applique shirt (like this one) with the Star Wars fabric to match the shorts
For Big Sister
a party dress
a princess peasant dress (like this one)
a Wall-E dress (like the Star Wars dress in the fabric from these shorts)
a Star Wars nightgown that will match Big Brother's pajamas
For Little Sister
a Batman Sun Dress (like this one)
a Scooy Doo Dress
For Tiny Sister
a dress made from a maternity shirt of mine (like this one)
a Star Wars Dress to match Big Brother's shorts
a princess peasant dress to match Big Sister's dress
Do I really expect to finish all of that this week? Probably not but I am going to try. As such I will be taking a break from blogging about RAD, attachment, life, etc. I will skip a therapeutic parenting moment post for this week (you can expect one on May 1st). Tomorrow starts our respite and I am giving myself a mental respite as well. Little Sister will go off to her grandparents and I will sew. I will take this week off of writing (and reading) about RAD and attachment. I WILL be blogging about kids clothes. I have a tutorial post on turning a shirt into a dress, possibly one on making a doll peasant dress. I will post details and pictures about what I make as I finish things. So, Happy Kid's Clothes Week everyone!
