The first day of kid’s clothes week is here! I think Jenny’s picture up there pretty much sums it up: pattern tracing, pattern tracing, more pattern tracing. Prepping for the sewing always seems to take longer than the actual sewing!
If you are new to KCW and a little unsure how it works, or if you need a little reminder, head on over to the kid’s clothes week FAQ page for answers to all your questions. It’s only an hour a day. If you miss a day, don’t worry! You haven’t failed–no one is grading you on this! Find an hour the next day. KCW is all about momentum: little by little the creative momentum builds and by the end of the week you’ll be a sewing machine!
I love all the kcw prep photos that are popping up on instagram and in the flickr pool. If you are on instagram, be sure to tag your photos with #kidsclothesweek, so we all can see what you are working on. We have an instagram profile now too: @kidsclothesweek. Throughout the week we will be featuring photos there as well, so follow us!
There are always eager beavers who start KCW a bit early and those lucky ducks in different time zones who are a day early! They are always the ones with the first finished garments in the flickr pool. And there are some good ones in there already! Check out these beauties and then go make your own!
