kcwc fall 2011!

kcwc button for fall 2011

It’s time again for another edition of KCWC: kids clothes week challenge.  KCWC is a twice-annual event where I challenge you to commit to sew children’s clothes for an hour each day for 7 days. Fall is coming (at least in these parts) and my kids could use some cozy pants and sweaters–and pretty soon we’ll need hats and mittens too! All that sewing is a little overwhelming, but I am always amazed at how much I get done by putting in a bit of time every day.

If you have more questions about how KCWC works, you can jump over to the FAQ page. Then jump back here and leave a comment on this post telling me you are in! That’s all it takes. Then on the second week of October there will be hundreds (really, hundreds) of people cheering you on to make awesome clothes for your kids.

In the mean time, feel free to browse around the elsiemarley flickr group for inspiration–join the group so you can post pictures for this one–and look at my posts from older KCWCs! If you have a blog, you can copy and paste the button below (fancy, html code to come when tech support/husband returns).  So leave a comment and sign up! spread the word! sew like crazy!

  10. robyn says:

    I was a total fail in Spring so I am going to attempt to redeem myself this Fall. The boy can only wear uniforms to school (bleh!) so it should be fun to focus more on my little girl.

    I’m in! Hooray! This year I plan to give my daughter a big old pile of dress-up clothes for her birthday, so I need kcwc!

    I’m in, but will be doing spring/ summer clothing since I’m in Australia!

  20. Stephanie says:

    I’m in! Goodness knows how I am going to fare this time as my youngest is currently 8 weeks old but I’m gonna give it a good go! Lots of preparation in advance I think!

  21. Count me in! Now, if I could only apply the same excitement to exercising an hour a day…

  22. Tera says:

    CAN’T WAIT!!!! : )
    Will start my list of what I would like to make them now! : )
    I love this!!!

  23. Erim says:

    I am in for sure. So excited and I am already thinking about what clothes I want to work on. I might even have to cut out the week before so I can try to sew as much as possible during that week. Luckily, I will not have any visitors this time around so I should be able to work on it more.

  24. fern says:

    I’m definitely going to try and be in this time. Although we may be moving that week, so that may change these plans for me!
