Dress your family in handmade clothes

I like to sew...have I told you that? I have a lot of fabric and probably even more patterns. I need new clothes (skinny clothes, woohoo!) and the kids do too. So, I plan to dress my family in handmade (I would have said corduroy but someone already said that). It's a labor of love, it's not cheaper by any means to dress your family in handmade and it certainly is time and labor intensive to do so. So, why do it...why go through the process even? For me uniqueness of handmade and being able to customize stuff is priceless. I get an immense thrill and sense of accomplishment knowing I made that!
Last night I went to Joann's Fabrics and picked up a few more patterns. I couldn't resist. When you can fit into the normal size pattern range the options are so unlimited, it's so much fun to imagine a great new to sew it up. So that's what I'm doing today. Sewing...sewing up a new wardrobe.

I just bought my first sewing machine recently and haven't even threaded it yet! I am super excited about learning to make handmade clothes for my kids and I though.
