Last year, Mirre from KissKus callenged herself by making one garment for her kids, each day, during a week. I really liked that idea of giving yourself a clear task. I'm not going to sew one item a day, because I simply am not that fast. But there's something else I want to achieve: finishing all the half-sewn clothes that are scattered around in the house.

They are:
- a brown pant for myself
- a striped pant pour moi aussi
- a blue fleece sweater for Mark (supposed to be a Sinterklaas present last December)
- a striped shirt for Pelle
- a T-shirt for Pelle
- a skirt I have to adjust
- a top I have to adjust
- a winterskirt for the only woman in this house
- a purple pant for the later, too.

In the next 2 weeks I'm going to finish it all, so the house is less cluttered, we all can wear some nice new clothes, and I have a clean slate to practice some Zen in my sewing: concentrating on one piece each time.
I'm looking forward to do it all and being rewarded with a feeling of fulfilment, like after the ironing of a ton off landry, yesterday.

  1. Hoi Ria,

    gefeliciteerd met je blog!
    En veel succes met je "challenge"... zet 'm op!

  2. Love the idea of the challenge! It's something I've been meaning to do for a long time; I also have tons of unfinished projects all over the place, and I'm happy to report that at least I've finally tackled one (and one for MEEEE!): Altering my favorite jeans to give them a second life after both knees got ripped – So sad.

    I like that your list is so heavy on things for you. Also on my list, I have to alter two pregnancy tops I love and want to wear now that I'm not pregnant.

    Two weeks! That's ambitious :)
