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 :)
