KCWC: Day 1
I'm taking a different approach this year to the Kids Clothes Week Challenge. Practical. The past couple of times I participated I went all out with tons of clothes and new (to me) techniques. This time around I really want to just focus on what they need. Plus they've got to want to wear it.
Today was easy. Erin has this cute gap t-shirt that she loves but it is getting too little. Target t-shirt to the rescue. I used some Heat-n-Bond Lite to make the applique then stitched around the edges.
I'm so happy because a) it is cute b) I know she'll wear it c) it took me less than 1 hour. The less than 1 hour part was important because I had other projects I wanted to accomplish today in addition to sewing.
I'm on my fall break this week so I thought I make some extra meals for the freezer. Ground beef was on sale so I tripled this recipe from allrecipies.com (minus the onion, I didn't have any). Three pounds made about 30 tennis ball sized meatballs (plus the one that I ate). I'm going to add them to this red sauce that I made last week. Nothing fancy, but again, practical.
