I’m way late for Kid’s Clothing Week. Here’s my Banyan Tee though!
I love the Banyan Tee pattern from Figgys. It features a relaxed fit basic tee, or a handkerchief hem in tee or tunic length. Flowy tops are in, and asymetrical hems are everywhere again.
I live for Figgys patterns and own several of them. There hasn’t been a peep on the blog post since March…does anybody have any intel? Last October the Sunki Dress was made available in tween sizing. I loved my daughter’s tween sized Sunki Dress, she and I were hoping for more extended sizes.
My little niece wears the heck out of this top, but she has other plans today. Her eyes have not left the trampoline. You see, the big kids don’t like Sofia to jump with them because she’s so small and could get hurt. At this moment, the trampoline is gloriously unattended. We were going to try for some nice birthday pictures, but we just really needed to jump right now. So that’s exactly what we did. We can take birthday pictures when the next time the mood strikes.
Sofia’s bow is worth a mention; I have a few similar ones left in the MayenDesigns Etsy shop. I was on a big bow making spree last month and couldn’t seem to sew. Now I’ve finished a few sewing projects and can’t seem to write. Lol!
I don’t set aside lots of time for blogging or taking pictures. My “blogging strategy” is to make something, take pictures if I feel like it, and write about it after everyone is asleep or waiting to pick up Bella from school. That’s if a project makes it past the photography stage. Not much of a strategy!
I read an interesting article on The Daily Femme about time chunking. Now, I make things as long as I’m in creative mode. When I get “blocked” or can’t decide what to make, I gather all the things I’ve made and take photos. Writing and photo editing is chunked together too. There is less switching back and forth between tasks and I feel don’t feel like I’m scrambling so much.
I still didn’t get a post up in time for KCW though…lol!
