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 (affiliate link) from Peek-a-Boo pattern shop.  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?

  1. Looks like you are ready to go! One of the things I plan on working on is shorts that I actually started the last KCW. The delay is not that big of a deal since we had a bit of snow last week so I figure it will be awhile before short weather anyways. ;)

    1. My kids are going to need shorts eventually too. That might have to wait until KCW summer though - assuming there is one.
