So things are off to a pretty slow start over here, in terms of Kids Clothes Week. No actual sewing going on yet, but I’ve been thinking about it a lot. That counts for something right?
I think I’ve finally picked out a few items I want to work on and last night I did some tracing and cutting and taping of patterns. I’m even busting out a Japanese sewing book, so I’m using Meg’s awesome trick for adding seam allowance. But seriously, getting my patterns ready has taken me 2 days and I haven’t even finished yet. Oy.
Next step is “shopping” in my bins-o-knit. Yup, this is pretty much my entire knit stash (though I did just break my fabric shopping diet and buy some knits online yesterday. *guilty face* I couldn’t resist!!)
So tonight I’ll finish preparing the patterns, pick out some fabric and hopefully get it cut. Maybe even do a little sewing? Probably not. Most of the sewing will probably happen on days 3 & 4. And if all goes well I might even have a garment or two to show you before the week is over. I still need to figure out how to use the KCW website too.
Where are you with your KCW plans? Been more productive than me, I hope?
And though this isn’t really KCW related, here is my dining table today.
Ahh yes, the life of a blogger 😛
Can’t wait to see what you’re making!
