kcwc guest post: anna from noodleheads
April 16th, 2012
KCWC gets started next Monday already! Do you have a plan? a list? a giant pile of fabrics on your ironing board? Before we are all up to our eyeballs in half finished garments next week, I thought I’d show off some beautifully finished pieces this week. Five very talented sewers (and bloggers) have agreed to do have a little pre-kcwc sewing party. I gave them all the same pattern–the Flashback Skinny Tee by Rae (thanks Rae!)–and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with.
Today the lovely Anna from Noodlehead has popped in with two springy, matchy-matchy cuties. This shirt, it seems, was made for dancing!
Hey! Kids Clothes Week Challenge is back, I’m happy to be guest posting today! I got to try out Made by Rae‘s Flashback Tee pattern! I can tell you that if you have children in your life at all, you really should have this pattern in your arsenal. Rae has every detail covered, so if you’re new to knits, you can jump right in and feel at home. Seriously.
I did struggle with picking out my fabrics, I’ve got a huge tub of knits that I have stashed, for no real reason. The only thing is that I didn’t really have anything that my girls liked. Except this one print. I love it! I ordered it from Girl Charlee a long time ago and have been saving it for the perfect thing, this was it. I made both a 5T and a 3T long sleeved out of 1 yard. And if I ever complain that my kids wear matching clothes more than I’d like, you can kindly refer me to this post and tell me it’s my own fault.
Oh and I also busted my twin needle right before I went to thread it. Bummer. Lucky for me there’s more than one way to hem a shirt, love that about sewing (and Rae‘s lovely tips).
I can’t wait to see all the awesome kids’ clothes coming up, thanks for having me us Meg!
