The Rumple Report: May Theme

It’s May now, isn’t it?  For those of you joining me in the Rumpelstiltskin Challenge, it’s time for a new theme.  As always, use it as much or little as you like.  Let it be a jumping-off point if you need a creative push or a Hell No! if you’re already swimming along nicely.

May’s Theme:  Making for Kids

Next week kicks off Elsie Marley’s KCWC! (Kids Clothing Week Challenge)

Join me in committing to working an hour each day of next week on clothes for the kiddos.  Mine need them, badly.  Yours too, I’ll bet.  On my list are appropriately-sized pants, pjs, a Woodlands Shirt or 3, and some Wishful Thinking Big Boy Underwears. (I don’t remember exactly why, but in this vernacular, the underwears are always plural.  And that’s how they’re going to stay.)

To facilitate all this crazy making, I’m reissuing the Measure Up Cheat Sheets that I designed last KCWC.  Print ’em up, measure the kiddos, and fire up your scissors.

* Special thanks to Anie for lightening the literary load of “Rumpelstiltskin” and offering up the pocket-sized “Rumple.”  I am generally disinclined to nicknaming, (it’s Isadora, not Dora and most definitely not Izzy) but this just works so well.  Thank you.

Happy to help!
Love the “underwears”! We go with “pantaloons” (via panties which are still diapers despite lingo) and yet now are transitioning quite dryly to pull ’em ups. With the tiniest girl in the world residing in our home, do you have an underwears pattern that you like? I’m loathe to figure this out by buying sets of unders that aren’t going to fit until kindergarten!
Happy Rumpling! 🙂

I’m really excited by this month’s theme! I love making things for kids. I haven’t been doing much sewing. I hope that I’ll get back in the routine by joining the Kids Clothing Week Challenge.
