Another KCW is upon us (or as Caroline refers to it, “Neglect Your Household Week”), and I am jumping right in. My plan this week is to sew things I know my kids will wear. Comfy, practical stuff. I spent a few hours this weekend cutting fabric and setting aside patterns. You know, gathering my Mise en Place.
GRANT PHOTOBOMB! (he reeeeally wanted to take a “bwog” photo too. hehe.)
GREAT pattern. This would be the first time making this pattern using yardage… the past couple of times I sort of cheated by using my husband’s old shirts and keeping the existing hems. This time around, I put it all together with the serger, and then switched to my sewing machine with a walking foot and zigzag stitch to hem the bottom and to attach the neckband (which came out hella perfect if you don’t mind me sayin’). I might break out my twin needle sometime this week, but I do like that walking foot/zigzag combo. So what if it isn’t totally profesh!?
Also, I would like an entire wardrobe made out of this fabric. It’s fabulous stuff, I tell you.
See you tomorrow!
(p.s. Caroline is busy this week making NINE little minion outfits for Jet’s Despicable Me-themed Birthday party this week! Good Mama right there…)
