Creative Therapy…Day 4

I was really excited to sew this shirt together for Day 4 of KCWC. I’ve had this brown & pink bird fabric forever and it turned out really well. I used lisette pattern 0410 and used the last ten minutes of my hour to cut out the matching skirt. (my project to complete Friday) Frankie wouldn’t let me take her picture…she only wanted to wear a dress today! I’ll get a picture of her in the complete outfit on Friday.

Creative Therapy…Day 2 and Day 3

After cutting out so many cute things on Day 1, I was really excited to start sewing. Unfortunately, I woke up on Tuesday really, really sick. Working that day was painful, slow and unproductive. Luckily, I felt a bit better on Wednesday and finished the first two dresses. The Frida pattern by Modkid is adorable and came together really easily. Frankie loves them both, but prefers the butterfly!

Creative Therapy…Day 1

For some reason KCWC (Kids Clothes Week Challenge) always arrives at the worst time for me. Instead of letting it pass me by, I decided to embrace the chaos and utilize the challenge as creative therapy. Life has been trying at best lately, but I love to sew…and I really love to sew for my kids. For information on KCWC, click here.

On Sunday night, I traced some Modkid patterns. They come printed on thick paper, so I trace the size I need and then I can reuse it in a different size.

So, with my Sunday evening jump start, I spent my hour on Day One cutting out. Two Modkid Frida dresses, one in warm tones & one in cool tones.

Two cute ruffled tops by Lisette (0410) One in a cute owl print and the other in a mod bird print.

I also cut out another Lisette pattern (0409) in a kitschy print with red polka dot piping.

I actually had a few more things I wanted to cut out, but I think I need to start sewing. If I have time later, I want to cut out the Modkid Kyoko pattern.

A big thank you to my friend Jennifer, who inspired me to do this. Check out her KCWC progress at Creating Bits of Envy!
