Welcome to day four of Kid’s Clothes Week. The project pool is blowing up with all of your handmade creations! It is really quite spectacular. Picking just a few to feature today was difficult, to say the least. Make sure you give KCWers some love with favorites and comments. Everyone needs a little encouragement!
These sewers especially deserve your applause. Sewing a coat is no small task. Sewing a coat and making it look as professional as these women did deserves a standing ovation! The best quote of the week comes from that sweetheart in the cozy pink coat. After putting the coat on she said, “Mom, it’s actually not a jacket but a hug which also hugs me when I want comfort.” This little girl expressed so beautifully why we sew and managed to tie it in with the KCW theme. Someone give that kid a cookie!
Just because you didn’t tackle a winter coat–or can’t even image thinking you could–doesn’t mean the clothes you are making are not difficult. The first time I ever made a pair of pants, the pattern pieces were an impossible puzzle I couldn’t believe fit together to make pants. No matter where we are with our sewing skills, there is always something that seems impossible. It might be pants, or knits, or zippers, or coats. Every seam brings you a little closer to making what you once thought was impossible. Go you!
