kcwc fall 2012: wrap up
October 17th, 2012
Jaw dropping is how I would describe this edition of kids clothes week. 641 of you signed up and then proceeded to blow me away with your amazing creations! The flickr pool is full of beautifully made, simple, stylish clothes for kids. Just because the clothes are stylish though, doesn't mean they take themselves too seriously. You have kids, so you know they light up when you put spaceships on their shirt or shoes on their skirt and it makes mamas laugh when there are numbers on their butt.
Could you feel the creative energy of everyone sewing together? We are scattered across the globe, but this week we came together to sew and cheer one another on. We all need to support each other in our crafty endeavors! You can continue to support your fellow sewers by subscribing to their blog, their instagram feed, their flickr photos, their facebook page, their whatever. A little encouragement can do a lot--for them and for you. I mean just look at the kcwc flickr pool!
Even if nothing turned out the way you wanted this week, or most things didn't get finished, or the pants are two sizes too big, I hope you are inspired to keep sewing for your children. If things weren't perfect, I don't want to think you failed. This challenge sits you down in front of your sewing machine and gets you to sew a little, then maybe a little more. This momentum feeds your creativity: the more you sew, the more ideas come to you, the more you want to sew! I hope you had a good week and I hope the creative momentum takes you into next week and beyond!
I would love it if you told me what you thought of this kcwc: what could be better? what did you like the most? what do you want more of? what isn't necessary? If you were in charge, what would you do? Anything! Everything! I want to hear it all!
