sew it all series - intro

After a lovely (albeit unseasonably cold!) summer spent with my kids I am ready to get back to sewing and blogging.  But this year I want to do things a bit differently than in the past.  At the beginning of summer I set a goal for myself to not buy any clothes for Mae this fall/winter with the exception of socks, underwear and winter gear.  Why not make those three things?  Socks - I don't knit so I wouldn't even know where to begin.  Underwear - She has a ton due to potty training so she won't need any for at least the next year.  Winter gear - I can't make the stuff as cheaply (and probably not as well either since I've never made any before) as I can buy it, and honestly, I wouldn't even know where to get the necessary materials.  But, other than that, I hope to make everything, including a Halloween costume, which I have never made for her before, so it should be fun!


I have a vague idea of where exactly I want the series to go, and I will have a few posts this week with more information, but for now, the series has a name (and a logo!) and that's about it :)

  1. Looking forward to it. I have aspirations to sew all of Noelles wardrobe but probably not this year.

  2. This is so exciting to me because I've made the same vow. Elena turned 3 this summer and I decided to take advantage of still having so much control over what she wears. It won't be so easy by the time she is 6 or 7. I'm also trying to spend as few dollars as possible on her wardrobe by thrifting fabric and refashioning a lot of hand-me-downs.and boy do I ever agree about winter wear. I'll let the experts handle that. Can't wait to see more!

    1. I'm glad to hear that someone else is trying this for the first time! I think I'll have to add a link-up on the blog so I can see other people's projects :)

  3. I am behind ith all the posts but this is an interesting idea. Not too different from what I do. My kids have a lot of clothes (hand-me-downs) so I only sew whatever is missing.
