day one: kcw june 2015

Welcome to day one of Kid’s Clothes Week! Here in the Midwest, we are in the midst of a huge summer thunderstorm–the perfect time to hunker down in front of the sewing machine. But no matter if you are sweating away in the South or cuddled up by the fire in the Southern Hemisphere, it’s always the right time to sew when it’s KCW!

These people got so excited to sew that they have beautiful clothes done and photographed already! Don’t get discouraged, those Australians! they have a whole day on us! I am just getting started: making piles and picking patterns. How about you? Have you already cut everything out? Or are you jumping in cold?!

I was featured on the KCW blog // JUNE 2015


Every day during KCW, we pick our favorites for that day. If your garment gets featured, be sure to grab this badge and slap it on your blog so the whole world knows. If your garment doesn’t end up on the blog, whatever. It will end up on your kid and that’s what KCW is all about!

    I was just wondering if someone could enlighten me, I have never actually participated in the sew along, or at least I never got far enough to post pictures, where do we post? Instagram and tag @ KCW? Any helpful tips would be great. Thanks!

      I like to add my pictures to the Kid’s Clothes Week page because that’s where I go to see what’s been made. Once you are logged in there’s and add button towards the top right of the page to add information about what you’ve made. I really love choosing explore and then projects to see what others have made!

    I’m just getting started too, despite being one of those lucky Australians that are a whole day ahead! It counts, doesn’t it? Picking fabric and todying the space in order to sew?

    Well I got mommy and me dresses sewn for my daughter and I today and a t-shirt, swim trunks and 2 swim suits cut out. So I’ll work on sewing all of that up this week. Whew!
