Made for Kids Month

This one is the brainchild of Rae (Made By Rae) and Liesl (Oliver + S).  They were inspired by Me Made May and wanted to do something similar for children.  Now, I don’t know about other people’s kids but mine rarely let me pick out their outfits.  Pledging to get them to wear something handmade everyday?  It’s a recipe for disaster.  Rae and Liesl have already thought of that though.  This is a no pressure event.  So as per their suggestions I will :

  • Share pictures of them on Instagram with the tag #madeforkidsmonth when they wear something handmade.
  • Talk about where clothes come from with souricette 1 (at not quite 3, I don’t think souricette 2 would get it).  Explain why I don’t buy a lot of clothes and prefer to sew when there’s a gap in their wardrobe.
  • Make something with the girls.  I actually have a clothing related project I’ve been saving for the first week of Summer vacation…
  • Maybe, maybe! Get souricette 1 to make herself a skirt or something.  I’ve been teaching her to sew and I think she’s ready to take on a project.

And now, for the first 4 days of handmades!

Day 1: They each picked something handmade without me having to do any convincing

Days 2 and 3: Souricette 1 created an…  let’s say interesting… outfit with two handmades.  And wore it two days in a row. I only took one picture.

Day 4: Souricette 2 wore a dress I made a long time ago.  She’s got two similar dresses with that yellow daisy print.  She loves them.

My secret hope? That I can get one of the girls to wear something handmade each day.  I may have to resort to nightgowns at some point…
