Kids Clothes Week – Day 2

Day 2 of Kids Clothes Week has come to a close and I am happy with the results.  Today I sewed up the Explorer Skirt by Hey There Threads.


When models are paid in candy and hugs they don’t always cooperate, but you learn to work with what you have 🙂  Sophie was only willing to put the skirt on if she could wear her pajama’s as well I was happy to oblige.


I got a bit of a jump start on the skirt last night since I knew I would be gone for most of the day today.  It is a really easy sew and a great stash buster for the pockets since there isn’t much accent fabric required.  I was able to get both pockets out of a fat quarter I had in my stash.  The main fabric is a dark charcoal grey suiting I found as a remnant at Joann’s.  I thought the splash of colour for the pockets was perfect for Sophie’s current pink obsession.

I am really looking forward to tomorrow when I am sewing up my first Bimaa Cowl.  I picked out a tonal green stripe sweater knit with a grey heavy weight jersey for the cowl.  Thursday I will take the same fabric and make a matching Recess Raglan for Benny.

I managed to get some pictures of the kiddos in their robes this afternoon.  They were having so much fun jumping on the bed.

      Ha! I actually got that comforter probably 9 years ago at Ikea. It is a great basic.

      I think the robes are pretty cute too 🙂
