Another KCWC has come and gone and you have made it amazing! One little nudge and suddenly all these cute kids have  closets full of beautiful handmade clothes.  The momentum this kcwc was unreal. Usually there is about a 50/50 split between the fizzle outers and the get ‘r doners, but it seemed like everyone was getting stuff done this fall.  No reason to let that good sewing mojo go to waste. I know you have a life to get back to, but don’t forget that just a little bit early in the morning or after the kids go to bed a couple times a week adds up to a lot of finished projects!

I was very excited to see all the new faces this kcwc as well. You can find some great new (to you) blogs I’m sure either in the comments section of this post or from this flickr discussion.  We all need to support each other in our crafty endevors! You can continue to support your fellow sewist by subscribing to their blog (and mine right there in the sidebar)– it’s like a virtual pat on the back. A little encouragement can do a lot, just look at the kcwc flickr pool! And my amazing sponsors could use your support too. We are all in this together!

    Thanks for a fun week of sewing. I wish I could have done some fun dresses and such BUT…. thanks to KCWC, all 3 of my kids have what their wardrobes ALL needed….new cozy PJs for the winter. NOW, I can sit down here and there at night and work on the super fun stuff, knowing they’re tucked in nice and warm. :)

    Thanks for hosting, Meg! I was going strong until the weekend and then life took over. So I have a little homework left to do this week – making the good things last a little longer.. :)

    thanks so much for including my shirt here…she wore it today! and for helping me “get out of my head” and remember how good it feels to make something… this was a great week and i am hoping to keep the momentum going.

  15. Jessica says:

    thanks for featuring my girls and their shirts! And thanks so much for the virtual kick in the pants..it’s something I look forward to, definitely!

  16. Jacqui says:

    Well done everyone! This is the first one I’ve had to sit out as I was away the whole week and it was awful! Not the holiday, which was nice, but not being able to join in and get that fabulous sense of accomplishment that I’ve experienced in past challenges. Can’t wait for the next one!

  17. Roser says:

    Uau! This time I do it! Now I need to put im my blog :) But I finish the week with new clothes.
    And I have one very similar (also the colours) with the pocket shirt :)

  18. […] my sewing mojo. So sad, isn’t it?  I was even considering opting out of theElsie Marley kids clothes challenge week , which I’ve done a few times […]

  19. Anja says:

    I had a great time, as usual. Thank you.

  20. Jenny says:

    Thanks for including my dino romper! I love KCWC, even though it makes me feel like the slowest sewist on the planet.

  21. Jo @ bubala says:

    Thanks for including my little girl and her peasant top & skirt – what a lovely surprise to see!
    I think I’ve enjoyed each KCWC more and more each time (this was no. 3 for me), and one thing I really love is ‘meeting’ all these lovely fellow sewists who I wouldn’t know were out there without KCWC! So, thanks ;-)
