I was sort of sad I couldn't add my design to this week's PR&P pool! I love sewing for boys, as that's pretty much all I do. Often times people don't invest in sewing boy's clothes, but I truly love it.
My favorite from the PR&P flickr pool is this one: (Her husband hates the pants... i bet mine would, too, but I LOVE THEM!!!)
Close runner-ups were:
I really loved these pants!
I've been wanting to make Cai a vest for forever!
This one is just too cool for school... oh, boy!
(Rachel that one laying down photo completely made me laugh at how serious and "model-ly" he was! Awesome!)
Okay, so there were a few others I enjoyed, too. But there were a lot of sewing bloggers "MIA" from this week's challenge, and why do you think that is.....
Yep! KCWC! I've been meaning to write up a post! I think you ALL from home should join in! elsie marley's KCWC is a week long online sewing event where people from everywhere join in committing to sew 1 hour a day for 7 days. You add your items to the flickr pool, and have so much fun watching everyone else make fun stuff, too.
Fall KCWC 2011 "Monster Tee"I remember my very first KCWC last Fall. It seemed SO daunting. Sew 1 hour a day? How would I manage that? How does one sew that much? I wanted to improve my skills, so I tried, and I'm so glad I did, because I got some great little boy items for Cai that year. More than that, I was welcomed into the blog world by other amazing bloggers that became my "friends".
Fall KCWC 2011 "Moccasins"
I was much more prepared for Spring KCWC (KCWC happens in the FALL & SPRING). I had some patterns cut out prior to the week, so I could just sew. I put my sewing machine by the pool and didn't let anything stop me.
Spring KCWC 2012 "Sailboat Shorts"Now, one year later KCWC is here again, and this time, I've actually been far less motivated than ever!!
Sewing is a daily routine for me now. Sewing 1 hour a day is not really even a challenge. I may not sew EVERY day, but I probably sew roughly 5- 7 hours a week easy now.

Spring KCWC 2012 "taking home my baby bumblebee & PR&P wk 3 winner"
Then, I started throwing up! True story...
As a sewing blogger, I love KCWC, because you can create WHATEVER you want and have fun with others doing it. You don't have to create for someone else's sewalong. You don't have to create to fit a series or a challenge. You sew what you want doing it daily for FUN! And that truth is what is motivating me to do KCWC this year again! I have some fun designs in my head and some patterns that I've been wanting to sew! A stash of fabric waiting to be refashioned and made into something!
So... how about you readers at home... are you going to join in?!
