If you sew for it the weather will come

We have had record breaking cold this winter.  Seem has been seeming to take its sweet time showing up.  I have decided that maybe just maybe if I started sewing for spring I could help encourage it along.  I love circle skirts and have made several from knit fabrics.  This time I made one with a woven fabric from my stash.  I couldn't quite face hemming the skirt so I attached some bias tape rather than hem the skirt.  I'm glad I did.  I think the contrast at the bottom of the skirt is fun.  We have snow today clearly I need to do some more spring sewing!

I'm loving the Kids' Clothes Week Wild Things Theme

I am so excited for the April Kids' Clothes Week.  The Wild Things theme is so much fun! 
Ladybug loves unicorns and pink flamingos.  I have been thinking about how to incorporate her love of pink flamingos in some fun ways.  I'm not sure I can get more creative than an applique or fabric stencil with the unicorn love.  Bug loves sharks so I want to come up with some fun shark things for him.  I will have to ask him if he has any other favorite animals.  Little girl ideas are so fun to think of I want to make sure they don't crowd out things for Bug. Have you started planing for Kids' Clothes Week?  I've started gathering ideas and would love to hear what others are planning!
