10 Kids Clothes Week Day 3

Karen over at And So, I Sew is hosting the Great Pattern Destash. This is not about getting rid of patterns, it is about freeing them from the packet, and using them for their intended purposes! If you've got patterns, stashed away, never seen the light of day, then you might want to pull some out and dust them off and get sewing. I'm going to commit to using three patterns from my stash this month. What about you? Pop over and let Karen know that you're going to join in.

I've started with this "Snappy Tie" Creative Card by Make It Perfect. My making this was actually a compromise. Noah and Amélie were both having afternoon naps and Liam wanted me to play Mario Cart with him. I wanted to sew. I was sew not interested in playing video games. So I suggested we make him a tie. It was a quick enough project that I was able to hold his attention for long enough to make it.

And of course, because I made one, I must make a second (and potentially a third, we'll see how we go). Noah and I made this one this one this morning, whilst Liam was at Kinder and Amélie was napping.

  3. Hi Carmel,

    Can you please give me the name of the pattern and where you got it for Amelie's cardigan she is wearing over her new skirt. Thanks for the website selling the sewing patterns.
    Kind regards,

  6. The pattern destash is a great idea. The ties look awesome. May have to make one for my little man although that will mean I need to buy another pattern to add to the hundreds that I already have and will definitely use one day ;) love the cute shirts too!
