Marley's Kids clothes week fall 2012 is
now over. I took on this challenge, and actually was almost able to sew at
least one hour, every day, for 7 days (it was harder on the weekend). I must
say, it is not easy! I usually sew whenever I have a chance, some weeks I sew
almost every day, and other weeks I hardly sew at all. So trying to sew for an
hour every single day was definitely a challenge. I think, even
though I have some great outcomes from this week, I like it my normal way
better. It is hard to sew "under pressure" (well, nobody was really
pressuring me, but you know what I mean). For me, sewing is kind of an impulse,
I have an idea, and I just have to try it out. It is usually not planned, at
least the start of a project. But I did have fun taking on this challenge, and
I have six finished garments from it!
In case you missed them, here is a summary of the projects I finished during KCWC fall 2012:
Oh, and the striped shrug - It is part of an outfit I am working on. I will have a tutorial for the shirt for you soon. The shrug was made using this tutorial, but I didn't take a t-shirt, I drafted the parts for the shirt from scratch.
