Kids Clothes Week
It's time for Elsie Marley's Kids Clothes Week. This year it has had a revamp and now has it's own blog and happens four times a year - one for each season. Although it is hosted in the Northern Hemisphere, we can still join in "Down Under", we'll just be sewing in the opposite season, so this time I plan to make Autumn and Winter clothes.
At this stage, I have plans to make Liam a few items for school (oh, I know - booooring!), as well as a dress for Amélie. I'm not sure what else I will make at this stage, but it will most likely be Oliver + S, Ottobre and Kwik Sew patterns I will be using. I might even whip up something from the book, "Sewing Clothes Kids Love". I hope to get some stretch sewing done, as I have some lovely stuff from Crafty Mamas fabrics that is tucked away in my stash. Speaking of Crafty Mamas, if you're a member of their forum, they are having a bit of a Winter Sew Along as well, so if you wanted, you could go and sign up and join in with the fun over there, too.
If you are looking for some inspiration, you can see some of my previous efforts from the challenge here, or you can check out the Kids Clothes Week blog's Flickr group as well.
The challenge runs for seven days and all you do is sew for kids for one hour (or more) per day. You can join in the challenge and check out the blog for more details, by clicking the icon, below.
If you're joining the challenge, especially if you are a fellow Aussie, I would love to hear about it. What are you making?
