Kids Clothes Week Challenge: 2010

Last week I signed up for the KCWC at Elsie Marley, pledging to sew for an hour a day Monday to Sunday. After not sewing clothes for a long time I realised how slow I have become at it (the bulging stomach getting in the way of everything may also be a factor).

Pattern: Quick Change Trousers from Handmade Beginings by Anna Marie Horner
(These little babies are reversible... two pants in one!. The alternate side is the spots with stripey pockets)

Pattern: Burda 9793
For the Monkey, perfect for our toilet-training in progress with their elastic waistband

Pattern: Oliver & S Puppet Show (now Out of Print)
These are for Bella, and I make them without the elastic around the legs for comfort

I must admit I missed one day, the call of the Nanna Nap was too great, so last night I made up for it

My second attempt at knits, and after getting the pattern out of the mail box I had this all made up in less than 2 hours.

Pattern: Butterick 6659
Fabric: Sandi Henderson Flannel

Now I have replenished my tracing paper at a new (to me) fabric shop I dropped into on the way home (cheaper AND closer than my normal one... danger) next up I think I will start on the Oliver & S Music Box dress or Oliver & S Ice Cream dress now the patterns are here.

I love the shorts with the pulka dots and the stripes. Nice combination of colors. Very lovely. The pulka dots makes it so attractive.
