I was a little unsure about kids clothes week when I first posted about it. There are enough tasks to get done everyday, I didn’t want to add to that list and make mothers out there crazy (or crazier). But I thought maybe we could eek out a little bit of time each day and that wouldn’t be too much to ask. Then blazzam! You took that little bit of time and ran with it. I am floored by the creativity and skill and perseverance of you all.

There is inspiration in the flickr group to last all summer long. I cut out twice as many patterns as I got to sew last week–and I’m sure I’m not the only one–so the group is sure to keep growing. Looking at all that you’ve made makes me want to sew so much more! The list will never be completely crossed off and I’m ok with that. Thank you so much for doing this challenge with me. I had a blast and my kids were pretty excited too. One of the participants (arg I can’t remember who) said her daughter told her it was like Christmas getting all these new clothes!
I will definitely be doing this again next year. We could beef it up with prizes (most completed projects, most botched projects, most beautiful on a hanger, most beautiful on the actual child…) or we could just keep is as it is. You guys made this challenge successful, so what do you think it should be like next year? Really, I want to know.
