kcwc spring 2012 inspiration

kcwc tutorials

  1. quicky a-line skirts
  2. euro swim trunks (pdf pattern)
  3. boy’s tie
  4. pieced scallop applique

I have piles of fabric and patterns and half started garments all over my kitchen table. There is too much for me to finish in one week, but I keep finding more things I want to make for my kids.  There are so many lovely things that people have made and even made tutorials for it’s hard to not want to sew. Here are a few tutorials that caught my eye this week (and one awesome pattern). I found these and so many more (too many?) on Pinterest. I’ve organized my boards a bit from last year:

kcwc handmade

  1. brombeertje (care bear hoodie)
  2. iro tee
  3. marimekko tee
  4. figgy’s ayashe top

These lovelies are all handmade. I’ll be posting more tutorials and handmade goodness on my pinterest boards all week, so follow me there if you don’t already. And leave your pinterest handle–if you have one–in the comments section. Or if you have a favorite tutorials leave that too! We are all hungry for new patterns!

    I think I just started following your Pinterest this week. Not sure what took me so long. And, I just have to say – I love, LOVE that iro tee you posted above. I wish the fabric was not $30 a yard. Boo!

    I don’t know why I never followed your boards before. This is my Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/owlisheyes/ My boards need to be organized but I get distracted and just end up pinning more things.

    oh man! i could spend all day on your pinterest boards alone! i’m so excited. with four kids, including a high maintenance baby, i need this week of sewing more than my kids need the clothes! all of the inspiration and planning has been half the fun. i just linked to kcwc from my blog, too.

  10. So much inspiring goodness here!

    But STOP i don’t need any more. Feeling so overwhelmed by all the things i want to make and do and not nearly enough hours in the day. . .


    (nice place you have here. don’t think i’ve stopped by before?)
