kids clothes week challenge: day 6

May 15th, 2010

oh you didn’t think it was over did you?

The baby doesn’t really need clothes, but how can I not sew something cute for him. Plus it’s easier to make new pants than to go get the box of bigger clothes and go through it again.  The knee pad pants are from the illustrious Dana of dana made it. And the purple pants I made from sleeve of a sweatshirt. He had some purple leggings that I was squeezing his chubby legs in because they were too cute to give up. Finally I traced them and made these and there are some yellow ones in the works from the same pattern.

I bet you could squeeze in a couple hours of sewing this weekend to finish up some projects, then maybe take some pictures and put them up on flickr. Next week I’m going to show off some of the beautiful things that people have been making because wow! you guy are amazing!

    “Made from the sleeves of a sweatshirt…”

    That is simply the best idea I’ve heard in years!

  3. Thanks Meg for organising this challenge. I have really enjoyed taking part. My sewing skills are very limited, I seem to have to do most things twice and I need to learn how to think a step or two ahead (eg don’t zigzag on top of basting stitches!) The discipline of the hour a day challenge has been perfect for me and not too difficult to squeeze in around a two year old! With thanks and best wishes, Anita

    Thanks so much for this challenge, it has been a lot of fun! I did manage a project a day for six days, didn’t think I would ever do it! I learned to take a few minutes for myself and so glad I did. Also love everything you have made and again THANKS!

  6. Aw, sweet. I especially like the wee knee pad pants.

    Thanks to you my daughter now has a couple of clothes for the summer. I’m not sure that I’ll get any sewing done tomorrow (my husband will be around and he’s a grouchy one), but it’s been good for me to drag out the sewing machine and have a productive week again (even if my house is now a huge mess…).

  7. […] by this post and these favorite leggings I decided to give it a go.  I think my biggest recent sewing […]
