I was all jazzed to go to a sewing meet-up tonight, but it’s raining and cold and my damn train is not running this weekend (G train, I shake my fist at you!) so…I’m moping (and blogging) instead.
It’s that time of year again. The time when my selfish sewing ceases and I make something for the kiddies.
I just noticed that my oldest son tore a hole in the knee of his Dr. Seuss jammies, so I guess new PJ pants are on deck. I’ve been keeping track of kid’s stuff and boy and girl sewing projects and inspiration on Pinterest.
I hope to make them some things that can be worn outside of the house this time around.
Here is my ambitious list:
A dress for the Little Girl
Shorts for the Bigger Boy
And (hopefully) a blazer (he LOVES blazers) for the Littler Boy
If I get at least the jammies made, I’ll consider it a successful week.
I’ve got a ton of plaid shirting that I can use for the shorts, some of this gorgeous robot linen blend for the girls’ dresses and I hope to use the blue version of the linen to line the jacket with khaki chino for the outer.
Hey, would cute bot shorts look too wacky? I mean, he’s only 6 years old. If you can’t wear robot shorts then, when can you??
