kcw summer 2013: wrap up!

The first ever summer edition of kid’s clothes week has come to an end! It was a wild and sweaty ride. A heatwave hit most of the United States right as kcw started, but you sewed on through the heat. And produced some lovely summertime clothes to boot! We are so happy that so many of you joined the new community site and posted projects. It’s beautiful over there–because of you!

kcw summer 2013: day seven

The last day of Kid’s Clothes Week is here! Are you covered in bits of thread and fabric? Up to your eyeballs in laundry and dirty dishes? Proud that you carved out a little time each day to sew? I’m guessing the answer is, “yes, all of the above.” I hope all of you sewing along this summer–or winter, depending on the hemisphere–had a good time. And I hope all of you following along and not sewing are inspired to join in the next challenge!

Here are some lovely handmade clothes from the last day of KCW. Check them out, clean yourself up, and we’ll be back later this week with a big KCW wrap up!
