This week's Project Run and Play challenge was to turn a white sheet into an outfit for a child. There was NO way on this green earth that I was going to head into Fall sewing something out of a normal white sheet for Cai. Too summery and thin for a cute boy outfit. That left either jersey or flannel, and I found a jersey knit Hanes full sized sheet in my mother-in-law's linen closet. SCORE! She didn't mind if I took it and cut it up.
Next, I knew my outfit couldn't just be white. So I dyed everything after I cut it out. This took some planning to figure out what pieces should be blue, green or white.
The goal for me this week was to challenge myself as a sewist... take a white sheet and make an outfit? Well, I did, and it was fun, and now I'm tired and need a break! ha!
