KCWC 2012

Hi Everyone!

So today is the last day for the Kids Clothing Week Challenge (aka KCWC) 2012…

The deal was you spend one hour a day for the week sewing kids clothes…I knew I wouldn’t be able to do one hour a day so I kept my goal small and committed to something I already had the fabric and pattern for.


So this is what I started with….2 metres of “super” flannel, 1 metre of black Bella solid and 2 long sleeve Target T’s. The pattern is Basic Pocket Pants from the Growing Up Sew Liberated book.


Now, it is so difficult getting good photos when the little people are crazy excited! They think their new PJ’s give them super powers!


I love how the pants look! Once I figured out how the waist band worked they went together really easily. For TP’s (who is 6 yrs old) I made the size 5 pattern and made the legs 1” longer.

I appliqued “BAM!” and “POW!” onto the shirts using the flannel.


And the verdict is 2 very big thumbs up! And you can’t get any better than that!

I think there will be more of these pants in my future, they are easy to make and really versatile – I can see them in denim, corduroy and more flannel!

Did you participate? Leave me a link so I can check out what you made!

Cute and cozy, just right for the coming winter. And really cute boys. Of what I can see of them, they really look like each other, don't they?

"Super" cool pj's. The boys look "super" impressed too.
You did an excellent job on the pants and matching the tee was brilliant.
Do they come in adult size too? I need some new ones - lol.
