Kids Clothes Week: Day 1

Yesterday was day 1 of Kids Clothes Week (KCW).  KCW is a challenge to spend 1 hour every day for a week making/sewing clothes for your kids.  It was thought up and developed by Meg Freeman, and has become a great resource and inspiration for patterns, ideas, designs, and fun.  I participated in the spring and really enjoyed it though I did not post anything about it.  This week I am trying a little harder to document what I am doing and will try to post about it.

Last night I decided to make the t-shirt I have been promising Anne for weeks.  I already had a pattern I’d drafted from another shirt of hers and I cut out it out of the pale pink organic cotton knit I had in the stash.  It took about 1.5 hours from start to finish, but it went by really quickly.  I was glad to have finished one garment in one night.  Anne was so glad to have her t-shirt.  The theme of KCW this time is kid art, so I might see if Anne wants to embellish this tee a little with some other appliqued fabric or ruffles, etc.

Plans for the rest of the week include making t-shirts for Hythe and Steven, sewing some shorts for the girls and maybe a skirt (or a skort!).
