New Banners and Kid's Clothes Week

In shop news, there are two new banners today. Check 'em out. I'll be listing more in the next few weeks, each with it's own color palette. I can also make custom ones for you based on colors of your choosing! Just send me a message and we'll work on something special just for you! Tomorrow is the last day I'll be listing new things for awhile, so I promise I won't bug you any more with shop talk for a bit. :)

I will however bug you quite a bit in the next few weeks about kid's clothes. The other night I was perusing the Wee Wonderfuls blog and she mentioned making plans for Kid's Clothes Week Challenge. This sounded like just the thing to get me motivated. Weeks ago when I purged and organized my office / studio I sorted all of the fabrics I've bought in the last few years into bins with each of the girls' names on them. I also threw the patterns I had been intending to use in the same bins to keep it all nice and organized. Then I put them back in the closet to be forgotten about. Ha.

So reading about the challenge helped get me motivated about the girls' summer wardrobes once again and I dug the bins back out. I purchased a few new patterns and I've been bookmarking kid clothes tutorials like a mad woman. I'm more than a little excited to use up all this beautiful fabric and save money by not having to buy oodles of new summer clothes. The challenge doesn't officially start until the second week of May but since I have two girls to sew for I thought I would get started next week. I'll focus on one girls wardrobe a week and see what happens. I hope to sneak a little sewing for myself in somewhere too but I won't get too far ahead of myself. I thought I would do some mini pattern reviews too as I go along and I'll try to share some links to some really great free tutorials I've found. This is going to be fun!


  1. These banners are beautiful!

    I'm looking forward to following you through the sewing challenge - perhaps it will motivate me to hem a few things.

  2. You are so talented. :) I really love all the orange you use! One of my best friend's fav. colors are orange and now I'm missing him. Cute stuff!


Your thoughts are always, always welcome. Just know that I appreciate each and every one of you even if I don't always have the chance to respond.
