I am trying to decide what to make for next weeks challenge, (see right for link.) I am hoping that I'm not to ambitious to get so much done in a week. I think I can; I think I can!
Here are my ideas so far:
1. PJ pants using this tutorial. Of course I would modify and make them for THE BOY!
2.Possibly using this tutorial for a pair of fun pants that are upcycled.
3.I really want to do a hoodie! I might use this as a guide to make one for THE BOY, or this one might be easier without a zipper.
4. I still want to do at least one hat. I'm looking at a couple different ideas. This idea here I could definitely do for any size since it is by measurements and not pattern pieces to print. I could modify this one to make it bigger because I think this pattern is a bit small for my five year old. This is my favorite pattern for a fleece hat. I changed the dimensions and made one for my son last January. Decisions, decisions!
5. I also want to try this pattern for making a short sleeved shirt into a long sleeved shirt. It looks easy enough. And I LOVE to upcycle, especially since we are low on the money side right now with both of us parents unemployed at the moment.
I can't wait to get started on these projects! This week, I am cleaning house and budgeting for the next month or so. We are deciding if we are going to move, so might be packing soon. BUT, I MUST SAY: I am looking forward to this challenge to do something productive, (no, something that I can SEE,) as I feel like all of this thinking and planning for life is for naught.
