Another KCW has come and gone. I love how the internet explodes with KCW goodness–amazing handmade clothes everywhere you look! Honestly, I wanted to feature every single project in the pool! The creative energy you guys create each season is amazing! Not to mention the beautiful clothes that come from it.

Even if nothing you started actually got finished, or the pants are two sizes too big, or life just got in the way of sewing, I hope you are inspired to sew for your children. The challenge is to simply sit down in front of your sewing machine and sew a little, then maybe a little more. This momentum feeds your creativity: the more you sew, the more ideas come to you, the more you want to sew! I hope that creative momentum stays with you!

I just wanted to mention that there were a surprising number of shoes sewn this week! Is there a Kid’s Cobbler Week in our future? Probably not, but there are some things on the horizon. We are thinking of having themes for KCW. What do you think? Of course you don’t have to sew with a theme, but sometimes it’s nice to have a bit of direction. Any ideas for a theme are also welcome ; )

Our contributors will be back next week talking about what themes emerged in this season’s KCW and also telling us a bit about why they sew. I cannot wait! If you are interested in being a contributor for an upcoming season on KCW, please email me at kidsclothesweek@gmail.com with a little paragraph about yourself and a few photos of what you’ve sewn.  Happy KCW!

    Yay – what a fun KCW.  I’m exhausted…but in a nice productive way!  I’ve never even considered sewing shoes – those are all awesome!  Going on my list for next time.

    I like the idea of themes, especially for this winter and the summer KCW.  For spring and fall it seems easier to get ready for a new season of clothing.  By this point in the winter I’d already made the essentials for the season so I used this week to get some random some cleaned out of my to-sew pile.  Thanks for hosting a great week!

    Love the idea of themes.  I actually did my own theme this time around. All refashions! Still not finished with the ten items I wanted to refashion, but I made some really good progress and got some great response from my readers.

    I like the idea of a theme! I didn’t know about KCW until it was already happening; but my son is so young he can’t really give input. Having a theme/some frame of guidance helps me focus and be more creative!
