Tips for Mess Free Painting with Kids...

Tips for Mess Free Painting with Kids ~ Threading My Way


Young children love painting. I have yet to meet a child who doesn't. It's a great way for them to explore their creativity, but most importantly, a fabulous way for them to have fun. 

Unlike many other kids' activities, however, it's not just a matter of getting out a toy, playing and packing it away. Painting with kids does require a little planning if you want it to be mess and hassle free.

I recently had the pleasure of pattern testing the Button Up Jumper, for Donna and Rachel, from Once Upon a Sewing Machine. If you ever have the opportunity to work with these two ladies, don't hesitate. They were both very professional, easy to work with and quick to respond to any queries.

Charlie Dress ~ Pattern Review...

Charlie Dress by Minog & Grace... Pattern Review  ~ Threading My Way

In July, I was lucky enough to win a copy of the Charlie dress, by Mingo & Grace, and courtesy of the Dotted Whale. I love the style of the dress - the dropped waist and the gathered flounce skirt, teamed with the plain top, so I was keen to sew one up.
