Kids Clothes Week! Back to School 2016

I’m back today sharing some of the back to school gear I made for Nigel for Kids Clothes Week.  Knowing I was going to be really busy this week  I did all my prep + sewing over the last two weeks.   Can you believe school starts here in less then 2 weeks?!?  I’ve been crazy busy getting ready.  Nigel now has a ton of raglan t-shirts and shorts  to choose from plus a new-and very awesome– backpack! Nigel asked me …

Kids Clothes Week! Summer 2016

School starts in two more weeks so KCW-that’s kids clothes week– is timed perfectly for me this summer! I don’t sew for the kiddos that regularly so it’s always nice to focus for just a week each season. The goal is to spend an hour a day sewing for our kids. Sometimes that’s more challenging then it seems! This season I started early. I wanted to make sure …

KCW + Halloween Sewing Plans

I wanted to add in an extra post today since its KCW!  I always love participating in Kids Clothes Week, especially since I really only sew for the kids a few times a year.  The theme for this week is Disguise-just in time for Halloween! My son was off school for the last two days so I’m holding off my KCW sewing until he heads back today.  We had a …

Kids Clothes Week-Summer 2015

Kids Clothes Week just finished and I’m thrilled with all the sewing I’ve done for my kiddos!  I opted to condense my sewing time this go around as I’ve had family in town all week.  My little brother is visiting from NYC and my niece came from Texas.  We’ve had an amazing week visiting with them!  Lots of time swimming at the pool, hanging out at my Mom’s.  We rented a boat …

KCW Storybook- Wrap Up

I got quite a bit sewn during last week’s KCW, though getting pics taken took longer.  Almost all my makes ended up being variations on the skater dress pattern from Kitschy Coo!  It’s such a versatile pattern.  I made Ami three dresses (you can see the first two here) two shirts for Nigel and both kid’s costumes for Halloween which I’ll be blogging about next week.  I’m almost done with …

KCW- First Makes for Fall

Just back from our quick jaunt up to Minnesota and sewing like mad for KCW!  I totally forgot KCW was coming up.  You can view all my past makes here on my project page as well.  Kids Clothes Week happens four times a year where we sew for our kids for one hour a day for a week.  It’s perfect timing as Ami had a request for a new red dress (this from …

Back to School Sewing

Nigel just started kindergarten last week and I’ve been busily sewing for school as our summer slowly comes to an end. I’m finishing up two polo shirt’s using the perfect polo from Blank Slate patterns and finished this make, a new backpack,  just in time for school. I started on it during last month’s KCW but never got around to finishing it. I went with a British/Nautical theme for Nigel’s …
