though i’m barely just getting acquainted with my sewing machine, i hopped on board the popular kids clothing week challenge at elsie marley this past week and ended up having quite a ball sewing into the wee hours. mistakes and disasters aside, i ended the week with a few wearable garments for the kids, and a renewed sense of wonder for the creative process. participating in such a robust community, with the cheers and encouragement of total strangers, inspired me to start this blog as a way to stay connected and remain inspired to go on creating.
i posted all the trials and tribulations on our family blog, which also motivated me to carve out a new space…not sure my whole family is really excited to read about inappropriate thread tension and seam ripping. here are a few photos from the week’s projects to kick off the new space.
