KCW Spring 2014: Preparation
Kids Clothes Week starts tomorrow! I have cut out several things to sew for the week, but I don't really expect to be able to complete everything. Usually I can't actually sew for even an hour during the week because by the time I get home and get the kids in bed I am pretty much ready for bed myself. I do get a lot done on the weekend though.
The things I really need to get sewn are spring jackets for the boys. I am using the Starboard Jacket from Peek-a-Boo pattern shop (affiliate link). The outer shell will be ripstop nylon, the lining will be jersey knit and I will put a layer of flannerl in between for a little extra warmth. Do you like the blue paint splotch on yellow print I chose for the big kid's lining? He really likes yellow these days, so I hope he likes it.
I also cut out some t-shirts from a cool tie-dye print I got from Girl Charlee. The little guy's has a cool applique on it that I will share with you when it is done. I used wonder-under to apply the applique onto the shirt. I will stitch around it to, but I didn't want to do that in advance because that would be cheating! :)
Finally, I have some pants cut out that I actually cut out prior to the last KCW. I better actually sew them up pretty soon or the kids will grow out of them before they are even made!
Are you sewing for Kids Clothes Week?
