kids clothes week challenge: buttons, rules, and players

April 26th, 2010

the buttons:

Feel free to copy and paste these on your blog (click on the picture and it will take you to the link to use).

the rules:

Okay, there are no rules, but it sounds less wishy washy than guidelines or suggestions. Really there is only one thing you have to do if you want to participate in kids clothes week: sew.  Sew one hour each day the second week of May.  You should probably be sewing clothes for your kids, since it’s kids clothes week, but I think accessories are close enough. You don’t have to start a new project or buy new material, you could just finish those pants that have been waiting for cuffs or the sundress you started last summer that still needs buttons. The point is just to work a little each day and see what you have to show for it at the end of the week. There aren’t any prizes, but you can post photos of your finished work in the elsie marley flickr group and we will all oooo and ahhhh over them. And that’s better than a cheap trophy, right?

  14. Sascha says:

    Oh I am so in! Mostly because I absolutely love the buttons! No, really, I’ve been in the mood for kids clothes these days and I have lots of plans.

  15. Valerie says:

    I’d love to participate. Although my daughter is 10. maybe less cute than toddlers, but she badly needs some summer clothes that i couldn’t start this winter because my sewing stuff was packed waiting for my new studio to be ready.
    So please if the age doesn’t matter, count me in !

  16. I am a day late, but count me in. I have challenged myself to refashion my daughter’s entire summer wardrobe. This will keep me on track.

  17. Heather says:

    I’m a day late just found this but count me in this is just the motivation I need to start my daughter’s summer wardrobe!

  18. Cheryl says:

    I’ve just found out about your challenge (and discovered your lovely blog!) and am going to try this, since my baby girl is quickly outgrowing everything before the warm weather has even arrived. I love your “no rules” rules too – it much more fun and less stressful this way (especially with 3 kids at home!)

  19. AJ says:

    I’m in! Better late than never!

  20. josie says:

    A day late and a dollar short but please count me in.

    I would love to do this too! I’m late, but I’ve been sewing plenty this week already.

  24. I’m doing it! So far, two skirts, two dresses, a nightdress and a headscarf. (It was a crazy day, the scarf was all I could muster up!)
