Kids Clothes Week

kid's clothes week

I'm really happy to be involved in the Spring Kids Clothes Week this time round and even more excited about the things I'm planning to make! It's an online event in which participants sign a pledge to commit to making clothes for their children for one hour every day for a week. Sounds fun? The idea is to kick start people into starting those projects that they've always wanted to make, but some how got round to.

Once you've pledged your time it's the commitment that keeps you going...I know an hour a day is never going to happen long term, but I guess doing it for a fixed amount of time illustrates that no matter how busy you are at home, or at work (or both!), you can make some time for yourself to do the things you really want to do. If you can make one hour a day happen for a week, maybe a few hours every weekend doesn't seem so unachievable any more?

I love sewing because I end up with stuff at the end...a finished product, a practical, usable thing. So I'm looking forward to seeing how much I can do in 7 hours this this space!


  1. I have just had a peek at KCW Mini Me. I shall join in next year and make things for my Granddaughter and the "nearly here"
    Thanks for pointing me in that direction.

  2. The website is great, there's loads to look at...some great ideas.
