Another Kid’s Clothes Week has come and gone and left me stunned by your efforts! The week started out slow and, as always, I had a little freak out that no one will show up to the party. But you showed up, all 602 of you! It was a crazy party: music blaring, sewing machines roaring, babies crying, and beautiful clothes being made!
Kid’s Clothes Week was a resounding success! We’re going to wait a day or two for the official wrap up, because there are still new handmade garments popping up on flickr! In the meantime (before you tackle the mountain of laundry) please check out our lovely sponsors!
We have been so lucky to work with such an amazing bunch of small businesses. Blank Slate, Figgy’s, Hey June, Go To Patterns, and Made by Rae are all very talented pattern makers. I’ve personally made a pattern from each of these makers. I have to say not only were the patterns a dream to work with, but I have no doubt I will be using them for years to come. You’re going to need fabric for those patterns: Miss Matatabi and The Fabric Stash to the rescue! Both shops offer gorgeous fabric and notions for all your sewing needs.
I know posts like this can be easily passed over, but all of these women are working hard to bring you quality products. Consider buying from these small businesses next time you need a pattern or fabric. You support them, they support us, we support you: it is all one amazing circle of handmade goodness!

There seems to be a green theme going today. It’s fitting, because people, it is actually spring here in the midwest. Some have you have moved on to summer (hey, we have a kcw for that season too!) but we are just crawling out of winter in these parts. Let’s celebrate with neon green triangles, and green cheetah leggings, and mint spring jackets!
Have you made anything green this week? Or are you just happy to have made something (never mind the color)?
