Yesterday was the start of the Kids Clothes Week Challenge. Having no time to sew, I spent some time cutting last night, and then a couple of hours sewing this morning. I made B some slippers, finished up some bibs I had already cut up, and a t-shirt for B. It was mildly disastrous, I have lost a lot of my sewing ability, and especially my pattern making ability. And the stupid machine kept un-threading (mostly my own fault). Even though my work is a little wonky, B likes it, and I guess that is what matters. He is wearing his slippers right now (based on this pattern – I made cutouts on the bottom and put a piece of fake leather I had around between the two sole pieces for grip). The bibs are pretty straightforward. The pattern is from Lotta Jansdotter’s Simple Sewing for Baby, but really, it’s not the sort of thing you need a pattern for. The t-shirt I made the pattern for using one of B’s t-shirts. The sleeves are a little off because I did them all wrong. When the Apple Store opened here, they were giving out free shirts, and I had meant to make mine B sized, because it’s not the sort of shirt I would wear, so I am glad I finally got around to doing that. B LOVES the Apple Store. I think it’s because they clapped a lot when it opened and he got really excited. And they have computers for him to play on. And he likes the mall in general.
