Wow, what a fun week of sewing it was!
Thanks so much to Rachael and Jill for putting together a super "selfish" week of sewing!While I wasn't quite as prolific sewing for myself (I blame lack of planning) as I often am sewing for the kids during KCW, I am pretty happy with my new pillow, scarf, bag, dress, and jammies!
It's nice to have some new things for myself. In fact so much new that on our way out the door for our date night the other night I realized that everything I had on, dress, scarf, and clutch I had made for myself...Is that weird? The kids go out of the house often wearing all mama mades, but is it weird for mama to head out of the house wearing all mama mades? Hmmm...my husband assures me that it's awesome, so I guess it's not weird.
Anywho...you've got to head over to the flickr group and get inspired...there are so so many great things in there to get you pumped for even more selfish sewing! Here are just a few of my favorites... A beautiful hoodie, a colorful esme top, a blue dandelion top, a stack of fat quarter napkins, a closet filled with new tops, and rainbow edge napkins...
As I usually am...I was drawn to the beautiful colors in all of these "selfish" projects. What can I say I am a sucker for a "rainbow" of color. Lovely.
And, now, as Selfish Sewing week is over it's time to start prepping for KCW! Wow! It'll be here before you know it. I have no idea what I will be making for the kids this fall, but I am thinking about potentially making them some winter coats, which might be the only things they get. We shall see.
Are you looking forward to KCW? Need some new patterns to get you started? Have you heard about the Sew Fab e-Pattern Sale? 26 patterns for $29.95! Yup, you read that correctly! Crazy right! There are so many great patterns in the bundle you must check it out.
Also, in honor of kids clothing week, Suz, of Sewpony, is having a $5 sale on her Debbie dress all this month! I'm looking forward to snatching this pattern up after seeing so many adorable versions during the pattern tour.
Have any fun sewing/crafting plans today? Not I, actually, heading out for some errands and outdoor gardening perhaps.
Have a great day!
