It’s day four of Kid’s Clothes Week and my admiration for these handmade clothes has turned to jealousy. I want these kids’ clothes! They are bold and beautiful and your kids wear them so well.
1. it’s hip to be square by Trine 2. wild flower swimsuit by Carin 3. super bunny jacket by Toya 4. purple rocking sweatshorts by Maartje
These are truly one of a kind clothes. The swimsuit above is made with Liberty of London wild flowers print–a nod to the wild things theme. It will be hands down the most beautiful swimsuit at the beach this summer! The sweet pink jacket on that cute bunny is not only hand quilted, but it has an extra special and extra awesome hand quilted design on the back.
1. birdy by Elke 2. rainbow totoro skipper top by Karly 3. bunny jammies by Jenny 4. neon wild thing by Nicki
Maybe you feel like the slightly screwed up, tangle of threads, half-finished mess in front of you is not the one of a kind garment you were hoping for. Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. Head over to the KCW Facebook page to vent a little. It’ll make you feel better. Then you can take on that mess of a garment and turn it into something amazing.

Welcome to day four of Kid’s Clothes Week!
1. copy cat leather shoulder sweatshirt by Amanda 2. tee with golden stencil by Marta 3. upcycled cowgirl romper by Carin 4. stripy dinosaur pajamas by Melissa
How is the week going for you? Success after success? Mistake after mistake? KCW is all about making mistakes and sewing on anyway. It is hard though when something you envisioned just so turns out very much not so. I hope the UPCYCLED theme makes mistakes easier to take. No one was going to wear that shirt, skirt, suit anyway, right?
1. stripes and pink leggings by Roxanne 2. 1 top = 2 skirts by Patricia 3. upcyced hipster henley by April 4. knee patch parsley pants by Megan
