Another season of Kid’s Clothes Week as come and gone. This season started off a little slow. When summer evenings are so lovely, it’s hard to sit in front of a sewing machine. But you put in a little time everyday and look at all the amazing clothes you made:

1. blue bites by Deb 2. bow pippa dress by Tathra 3. blue gathered cosi swimsuit by Kristin 4. dress for the wedding by Alexis 5. liberty theo by Kristi 6. newborn pjs by Abby 7. bookworm button up by Shelly 8. dotty blouse by Lucinda 9. poppy top by Amy

Many of you chose to make a garment or two with the theme KID ART in mind. I love all the different directions you took with this season’s theme! Your kids painted and colored on fabric, you ironed on their designs, you translated their obsession of the day into beautiful garments, and you chose fabrics that looked like little kid masterpieces. The results were one of a kind, just like your kid!

We have some fantastic things coming up! There were almost 400 of you sewing along this season! Later this week, we will pick one of you to win the participant giveaway. Our contributors will be back in the coming weeks with some interviews with KCWers. The popular series, Why I Sew, will also be back in a few week. So stay tuned! But first maybe a cocktail in the back yard. After such a phenomenal week, you deserve it!

    For me the combination of winter weather and the Tour de France on TV late into the night was perfect for sewing well past my hour minimum each night. You can keep your cocktails and balmy evenings. Or, hang on, that does sound really nice…
    thanks for a great Kid’s Clothes Week!

    most of my sewing wasn’t done for my own kids this week, but i got a bit done at least!  thanks for a great KCW, and thanks for including my swimsuit along with those awesome kid clothes up there.
