kids clothes week fall 2012

September 18th, 2012

The temperature has dropped and fall is finally on it’s way! It must be time for another edition of KCWC.  Kids Clothes Week Challenge is a bi-annual event here on elsie marley where I challenge you to sew one hour a day, each day for 7 days.  The idea is that we all have the urge to sew clothes for our children, but we don’t always give ourselves the time to do it.  If you commit to sitting in front of your sewing machine, or tracing patterns, or cutting fabric, for one hour each day, then at the end of the week you will have some very well dressed kids. And a very proud mama too!

If you would like to know more about kcwc you can check out the kcwc faq page. You can also head to the elsie marley flickr group to check out creations from kcwc past or see all my posts on kcwc here.

So what are you waiting for? Sign up! How do you sign up?  Just leave a comment on this post telling me that you are in. Then go tell all your friends to sign up too! Spread the word on twitter, instagram, pinterest, tumblr with the #kcwc hashtag. Slap a button on your blog or on your facebook page. Link to this post and try to get all your facebook friends who sew to join too. I bet your mom would like to be invited. Last year I think there we had almost 700 people sign up. Can we make it to 800? 900? Now I’m starting to sound like a politician! Go knock on some doors for kcwc!

    Coming late to the party, but I’ll make up for it. I’m working on several items for my kid. Will post photos soon.

  11. I know I’m late but I still want to sign in, if I can.
    I did sew last night a towel robe for my son, and I’ve been thinking on this challenge all week.

  12. […] These kimono pjs from Amy Butler’s Little stitches for little ones have languished ever since I realised that the pants were cut upside down (that’s what happens when sleep doesn’t). But then I figured that as they are to wear in bed the direction of the pattern doesn’t matter (to anyone but me) so I finished them off in time for Elsie Marley’s kids clothes week challenge. […]

  23. […] Kids Clothing Week Challenge has been running for 5 days now and this is the first thing I’ve got to show you. I loved taking part last time and had high hopes for this week but, for various reasons, haven’t managed to do much so far. I’ve spent a lot of timing thinking about sewing, writing about sewing on here and even went to the Knitting and Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace yesterday. I just haven’t actually had time to do a lot of sewing. Earlier today we went to the park. […]
