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!

    I would love to join and could use the reason to set aside time to sew for my own kids. I sew for work…. and sometimes I forget to make things that are supposed to stay here in our home or be worn by very own lovelies! Looking forward to it.

    Okay I have watched these over the past year and have decided to join in. Am in Australia so our seasons are opposite but I figure Spring is not too distant from Fall so I will give it a go. I love to see what other people make. Provides inspiration for me for the following season !
