Kids Clothes Week ~ Day 7 ~ Zebra BBB

Well I’ve reach the end of the KCW season. Yay, after a slow start I caught up quickly and even made some within the theme.  Especially todays one.   I think this may be my favourite item from the week, though the horse hi-low comes in close second. The pattern I used was my Bow Back Beauty, and I made Brylie the size 6 width with a 7 length as she’s thin and tall. I used pink cotton Lycra from Levana and the zebras […]

Designers Pattern Swap ~ Spoxxy Top by SUAT

As you know there are many many designers in the PDF world.    And it may surprise you to hear that we actually like each other, help and encourage, and bounce ideas off each other. We don’t copy each others designs (as it is sometimes thought by our loyal customers – and we do thank you for that support and loyalty) however if a similar design is released by 2 designers it is most likely because of the demand for […]

Kids Clothes Week ~ Day 6 ~ Bunny Leggings

Day 6 has come around and today I made Portia a pair of bunny leggings using my skinny legs pattern.  Portia still fits the size 12 months size (even though she turns 3 in 7 weeks and 1 day) and for the length I cut at mid way between the 3/4 length and full length as her inseam is 28cm.  See the chart is for a 31cm inseam so taking off those extra cms makes them fit perfectly. Cutting and sewing time […]

With winter fast […]

Kids Clothes Week ~ Day 4 ~ Hi-low Horses

While planning (using this word very loosely here!) what I was going to make for KCW this season, I discovered that Brylie lacks long sleeved t-shirts, well she has a few, but they are getting a wee bit short in the arms and body, ok, ok, they are just too small all together.  So L/S t-shirts are on my list to make Brylie this Kids Clothes Week. Today I made a hi-low long sleeve t-shirt using my very versatile pattern the […]
