KCW – May 2016 – Day 5

Day 5 Pattern: Bow Back Beauty Size: 2 Fabric: cotton lycra Today’s sew was a winter bow back beauty for Portia, I realised that she had grown out of her test one, and doesn’t have many long sleeve dresses.  actually this will bring it to two! I also realized that my phone does not take very good moving photos and with a very active nearly 4 year old that is a must…time to get a good new camera I think. […]

KCW – May 2016 – Day 4

Day 4 Pattern: Choose your Adventure Tee and Dress Size: 5 with added length Fabric: 3 upcycled adult tshirts So today’s item is a upcycled t-shirt for Elijah.  He always seems to miss out during these sorts of things as making for the girls is just so much easier. I made him a CYATAD using a transformers tshirt that I bought from a second hand store for .20c! See, even the back is kind of pieced together like it could […]

KCW – May 2016 – Day 3

Day 3 Pattern: My new pattern that will be FREE Size: 6 width with 7 length Fabric: stash that was some unknown knit I was gifted. Its getting cooler in New Zealand and Brylie is growing like a WEED, I discovered that she is growing out of all her pants and so this is what has prompted my newest pattern. A bootleg pant that fits like a looser legging at the top with a flare at the bottom.  They are uber […]

KCW – May 2016 – Day 2

Day 2 and I’m off to a good start…well I thought I was, I somehow managed to delete almost all of my photos from today’s wee shoot.  As I was uploading to dropbox I thought I’d delete from my camera, not realising that duh I needed to wait till they had finished uploading…well anyway I managed to save 17 of which you see a little collection now.  the rest were all too fuzzy. Portia is really becoming harder to photograph. […]

KCW – May 2016 – Day 1

DAY1 Pattern: Street smart sweatshirt collection Size: 7 Material: kmart tshirt and stash Well, what would you know, I’m actually sewing and posting on DAY 1 of kids clothes week this season!!! shock horror, I’m usually so behind that I sew up 4 days in one day and post them all at the same time.

KCW – June 2015 – Day 4

Day 4 Pattern: skirt in the design process (take 2) Size 7 for Brylie Fabric: random pieces of wale cord in my stash and home made bias binding. So as per usual when I join in with Kid Clothes Week, the things I make generally follow the pattern or patterns that are in development.  Well at the moment it is a wee denim skirt with multiple options, one of which you saw yesterday.  Portia’s one was a very simple hi-low with […]

KCW – June 2015 – Day 3

  So today I consciously decided to make my KCW item, I have had some denim wrap skirts sitting in my “to make into something else” pile for a heck of a long time and this new pattern (new as in its pretty much still in my head) was perfect for them.  It is a light weight denim with no stretch which makes it perfect for this simple little girls skirt. Day 3 Pattern: skirt in the design process Size […]

KCW – 2015 – Day 1&2

So once again I have failed to start with KCW on time, I really don’t know how on earth it comes around so so fast.  I always have great expectations to plan and organize myself to start on time, but then WHAM, its already day 3!!! I’m not going to pretend that I have sewn two items for the first two days so I’m just going to show you a few of the things that I made recently to make […]
