kids clothes week spring 2012

big button for kids clothes week challenge

Spring has sprung and that means it’s time again for 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 (or papa) too!

All you need to do to sign up is leave a comment on this post. 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.

If you would like to sponsor elsie marley during kcwc, I would love to have you! Kcwc has become wonderfully successful, so much so that traffic to this little blog doubles during kcwc month! Sponsor spots go up a bit in price ($40) but it’s totally worth it. Drop me a line if you’d like to get in on the action.

Okay! leave a comment and sign up! spread the word! and sew like crazy!

    Since Vinny just grew an inch I NEED to get some sewing done. He’s running around looking like a flood is coming. I need to put down the plushies for a bit and get on it! Today I will pull out my old Ottobre mags and start figuring it out.

  2. I’m in! I’m in desperate need of a good, creative ass kicking! Thank you, thank you!

    I am definitely joining in! My 4-year-old is getting to the end of his hand-me-down stash, and his clothes aren’t surviving very well for his younger brother either :) I have a stockpile of patterns and fabrics that have been waiting, and with our roommate moving out I will get my sewing space back, so now is the time!
