As usual, I have lots of plans for the Kids Clothing Week Challenge this fall. Will I meet them? eh, who knows, but at least I'll try.
Here's a little photo to give you a very poorly lit (I do generally sew at night these days after all!) sneak peek.
Quick run down from top right. Striped shirting will be an Easy Linen Shirt from Sewing for Boys (finally I make something from the book!) The three fabrics under it, will make up a teeny pair of 0-3 months Quick Change Trousers from AMH's Handmade Beginnings (I seem to like to make these pants in red tones, as previously seen here). Next up from the light blue is a Baby Sleep Sack from Growing Up Sew Liberated for the new baby. On the right is a pile of fleece to make a dinosaur costume for M using Jessica of Running with Scissors Woodland Animal Costume (plus one of her dino tails). And last is the car fabric which will be a pair of Easy Pocket Pants for M also from Growing up Sew Liberated. And this just touches the surface of my list of things I want to sew for my boys!
For any of you who don't know about KCWC, check it out! link above or on my side bar.
In other news...
I think I never told you all that I'm having another BOY? Maybe my colour choices above might have hinted, but well I am! And this time I have plans to sew all the things I never got around too with little M! I always figured I'd be a mom to two boys (my husband is one of two boys) and so here we are! And M loooves the idea of a little brother, kisses my stomach and asks to hug it all the time, while asking me if he's coming out next week (ha). This was me last weekend (29 weeks), for those that are curious :)
And last, but not least, it looks like my city is FINALLY getting a fabric store with potential awesomeness. It's called Fabrications, and it opens in November. I'm already drafting them up a nice long e-mail full of suggestions of things I think they should carry, but from their description, I think it will be awesome regardless!
