Do you remember this project?
It was my Tic Tac Toe game shirt I made for Season 2 of Sew Ready to Play. The Tic Tac Toe game itself was designed by my husband and is totally cool. The game itself wasn’t a fail. It gets played with still. But as a shirt…. Never got worn…. I should have known from that look on the kiddos face, huh?
So for my first day of Kids Clothes Week, I’m bringing it back as a plain old t-shirt. I didn’t make the shirt. But I did use my seam ripper to remove all the Velcro. So that’s partly sewing right?
Ok, here’s the deal. This is my sewing room. Piles ‘o projects! See the shelves of fabric? See all the piles in front of the shelves of fabric? That’s all projects in the works. I’m really trying to finish all these projects this year. One thing that isn’t in the picture is a bag of projects that needed mending. So my first night of KCW was spent planning and going through my mending bag to see what I needed to fix. A couple of things just went away.
And then there were these two sweaters… Both had holes in them at some seams. So no knitting involved, just two quick stitches. The one on the bottom has been in the bag for over a year and it took a whole 2 minutes to fix… Why do I do this??? Wait so long for a 5 minute project??? I don’t know!
And then I found the orange striped t-shirt!
I saw that it was actually a 4T. Not so sure why I had my2 year old wearing it back then, but it still fits. Maybe not for long, the sleeves are getting a bit short. but Hey for the rest of spring, my son has a new shirt and it’s so soft. He wouldn’t take it off!
So day one of KCW, I did some planning and mending and reviving a failed project. It might not be new from scratch, but it’s Kids Clothes!
Did you make anything?
