Weekend project for the whole family!

While checking out the bloggers who took part in yesterday’s Things I Love Thursdays, I came across Kaycee, who is a sewer and a recycler (images of beautiful quilts come to my mind). Her blog is called In the Moment: On life, motherhood, food and balance.

This week she referred back to making her own pair of skinny jeans from an already-owned pair of non-skinny jeans (she even did a tutorial!) And she showed some projects she’s been looking into for inspiration.

Well, I found mine! Before tying up the charity bags of clothing this weekend, we’ll be going through them on the lookout for hunks of material to make the bags you see here. I think we’ll improvise on the sizes—I see Graydon with a huge one in camouflage material, a medium one for Luka in Star Wars (old pillow cases) and something girly for Tessa. Me? I’ll wait for inspiration. The instructions to these are so easy it’ll be each kid for him- or herself, and no sewing required! For full instructions, and an incredible site, check out http://www.livingcreatively.com.

 

Check back on Monday for the results (hahahahahaha) and the first day of our March Break! Have a great weekend!

  1. Thanks for the mention! The Star Wars one sounds way cool. Can you tell I have two boys?
