Kids Clothes Week Challenge

I just stumbled across the Kids Clothes Week Challenge on the Elsie Marley blog (mentioned in today's post on Made about the wretched kids clothes on Project Runway). Basically, the challenge is to spend 1 hour per day for 7 days (October 8-14) making clothing items for children and see what you've got by the end of the week. The blog owner (whose name is NOT Elsie) apparently does this in both the spring and fall.

It's a Monday-Sunday challenge, and that's a really crazy week for us coming up - RG and TA's birthdays are Monday and Thursday that week, and we'll be on the road that Sunday on our way to Disney World. I don't know if I'll do it or not but I might still be working on Disney World outfits anyway ... so maybe I will? I don't know. Maybe I'll hold off until spring. But it sounds like a fun thing to participate in, and probably get more ideas from the Flickr group that everyone can post their photos on.

If anyone else is looking for something to do - maybe some motivation to get going on making Halloween costumes for the kiddos, or something ... there you go!

Excuse me, I apparently need to go solve a problem involving a large "test tube" of water with a bunch of tiny Connect Four pieces in the bottom that's being fought over in the middle of my living room.
