This is just one of those posts with different things in it and no title came to me, so I’ll let you make one up yourself ;).
Life is busy. The hubby is gone for a while. The Coast Guard has him away for a bit. But, my mom is coming to visit soon. So that is going to be super fun! Girl time is a good thing. My darling little one was patient with me and let me get a few things done this weekend. I made this little doll for one of my nieces.
She has a birthday coming up this week. I also made her a few hair clips. I love how the first one looks like I sprayed whipped cream on it! lol. Mmmm….maybe I should go to the store and get some…..
***I also want to share with you a wonderful challenge that Sarah is doing over at Come and See the Seitz. It is a Pattern Challenge. Here is what she says about it:
“I’d love to have anyone who is interested in stretching their skills with apparel construction to join me in these efforts! It’s simple:
1. Choose your goals (ex. To sew 4 garments before your next vacation, or to sew 1 swimsuit before summer, etc.)
-Make your goal(s) attainable and realistic for your personal life.
-Not interested in sewing clothes for yourself? That’s OK! Make your goal to sew clothes for your children, or your husband, anything goes!
2. Put it in writing!
-Blog about your goals, or if you don’t have a blog, get it in writing. You’re more likely to challenge yourself if you have someone to keep you accountable.
3. Grab the “Pattern Challenge” button and Join our Flickr group.
-Post on your blog’s sidebar to get the word out! Post about this on Facebook! Tell your friends!
-Send me an email if you are participating, and I will add a link to your blog to my sidebar of participants.
-Copy the HTML button to your sidebar:
4. Blog about your finished garments and categorize/tag them as “Pattern Challenge” . In addition to this, you can post them to our Flickr group. Be sure to add a note to your picture with a link to the blog post that describes the garment, if there is one.
-Title your blog post according to the sewing pattern name, and include “Pattern Challenge.” For example, my first pattern was Burda 7550, so I’ve titled my first post, “Pattern Challenge: Burda 7550.” This will help when others are searching for pattern reviews.
-How awesome would it be if someday we had a whole pattern library from these posts? My mind is spinning! Please, feel free to offer suggestions!
My vision for this project is that in just a short amount of time we will have a virtual pattern library full of our reviews and photos of finished garments. We will also stretch ourselves to learn more about garment construction and we will have a way to share in the joys (and sometimes terrors!) of sewing clothes!
Please consider joining with me if you have any inkling of a desire to sew more clothes”
It’s chock full of amazing tutorials/ideas/pattern reviews/etc. of things just for the boys! I highly recommend you follow along. I know I’ve bookmarked some things for gifts to make for the little men in my life.
