Week 6 Sewing Challenge: Sew Something with Buttons or Snaps

well, well,well….end of week 7 and the first of the challenge balls to drop.

Although, it’s better than you may think: I HAVE completed the challenges, and I am on schedule….just haven’t blogged about it.

so, you may get more than one post today…..or maybe tomorrow?

Some other very exciting things have happened this past week too (but I’m keeping that a surprise….at least for now)

alright. Let’s talk challenge: Buttons or Snaps.

Buttons don’t scare me anymore like they used to….but, to be honest….I’m not sewing with the most reliable machines these days. In fact, I have 3 or 4 that need to be taken in to be serviced in one way or another….and, frankly, I ain’t got time to have another one bite the dust. (read that to say: I’m not chancing button holes right now) On top of that…I just really like snaps….

So SNAPS it was!

I mentioned in my Insta post that we are headed to the MOST MAGICAL Place on Earth later this year (God-willing, of course. This is a rescheduled COVID vacation) Our children DO NOT KNOW about this, so please, if you know them, keep it on the DL. Thankfully, we never told them about last year’s plans either, so the only disappointment was our own.

ANYWHOODLE…I have started gathering the necessary clothing….but you know I gotta make some too.

As soon as I saw this fabric, I knew EPCOT needed this in it’s life.

I love switching up the colors and making something extra unique!

If you’re thinking about adding some snaps to your next project….these are the kind I use:

Pattern is CKC Porter’s Button Down Shirt

Now I just have to decided if I’m making the other 3 kiddos coordinating outfits….
