Sew Ready to Play Sequence for Kids with Go To Sew

Today’s guest is Andrea from The Train to Crazy and the lovely woman behind Go To Sew! I’m hoping you’ve been to the Go To Sew website, since I guest post there once a month… I ‘met’ Andrea the end of last year (I think it was) when she first asked me to be a contributor for Go To Sew. And over the year I’ve loved getting to know her better through the blogs and IG! She comes up with some great things! Like the toothbrush holder idea I made…  So if you haven’t checked out her blogs, be sure do to so, after you read her adorable skirt tutorial below!

Welcome Andrea!

I love using everyday objects, books and games as inspiration for creating. I thought this challenge would be so easy but I kept coming up blank when trying to decide about my project. I didn’t want to make it too literal or too basic. Though, perhaps I ended up doing both! I chose the game, Sequence for Kids, because my kids LOVE it. The box is worn and torn and we’re lucky to have nearly all our game pieces. This is a very fun game for all ages.

I love the primary colors in this game. I was inspired by the circle game pieces to create some modern “art” on a piece of clothing for my four year old. I used my super simple skirt tutorial and added some “cheaters appliqúe”. (Please forgive the wrinkles! We’ve moved and haven’t unpacked the iron yet.)

I call this “cheaters” because when you don’t adhere your fabric securely (with something sticky) then you’re risking your fabric or your appliqúe pieces shifting or puckering. But, I’m a big fan of getting things done quickly so you’ll often find me cheating! I have to admit, I went a bit too fast on this one! But I wasn’t going for a perfect garment but a fun skirt for a four year old so we’re totally satisfied with this!

Nothing beats a fun board game with siblings.
