What a week KCW was. I had no idea when I started that it would be so much fun and be just the push I needed to start sewing regularly again. I totally get it now why all of these amazing bloggers do this two times a year.
Not only was it fun to make my projects but it was so great to see everything that other people were making, so much inspiration for future sewing. I already have a new list of clothes started that I want to try.
If I had known it would be so much fun I would have participated in Kids Clothes Week so much sooner. As I headed off to preschool with my oldest this morning all I could think about it would be a few hours before I could get started on my sewing for the day. Once school was over I convinced the kiddos to play for a bit so I could make my first project of the week, the Sleepy Robe by Melly Sews. Let me just start by saying what a great pattern this is. Not only did she offer this pattern up to everyone for free, score!, but it is a quick and easy sew. Start to finish it probably took me about an hour, but I know that is mostly because it was the first time I had done the pattern.
