KCWC ends today, but as I started a day early I gave myself the day off, and instead we headed off for an outing with C sporting some of his brand new clothes.
Refashioned jeans received his tick of approval, as did the T shirt I made last night. I used some leftover remnants from other projects- some green T's I made for myself, and some navy blue summer sleeping sacks I made for C.
The patch on the front (identified by S as a BMW Isetta 600) came with the Clothkits corduroy car pants (still awaiting their turn with the sewing machine) along with some other patches including a Citroen DS. Saving that for a bigger T in the future. I played around with some of the hitherto unused stitches on my sewing machine (Yes, I've had it 20 years and there are stitches I've never used) to find one I liked as an edging to attach it to the front.
As well as the pants there is also another remnant T waiting to be sewn, and quite a few things left on the list. But overall, I have to say I'm pretty chuffed with the results of this KCWC. I really needed that little extra push (and encouragement from all the great feedback, both on-line and from C) to get on with it, and to make the most of any small sewing opportunities that arose during the week. I'm hoping I can maintain the sewing momentum in the coming weeks, although sewing will be competing with the needs of our laundry renovation- the final house renovation phase, finally starting after putting it off for three years (*gulp* Has it been that long? Really?).
