Kids Clothes Week

For close to a year I have watched all these amazing ladies create things for their kids during the biannual kids clothing week.  It always looks like so much fun I just never got my act together in time to participate.  Another edition start tomorrow and I actually planned everything out and got started last night prepping.  All of my patterns are cut out and ready for fabric tonight.  I am hoping to have all of the fabric cut out tonight so that tomorrow I can just hit the ground running sewing.  I know it is going to be a challenge since my list is actually quite ambitious in terms of time I have available during the week, but all of the patterns are ones I have been wanting to make and should be a nice variety for both kids.

So without further ado here is the list of items I will be creating for the kiddos this week:

Monday: Melly Sews, Sleepy Robe

Sophie has been asking for a robe for a few weeks so when Melly offered up this free pattern I jumped at the chance to make it.  I am going to try and make one for both kids since Ben usually gets left out in the clothes making department.

Tuesday: Hey there Threads, Explorer Skirt

After a friend made a few of these and they turned out adorable I knew I had to make one, I just never got around to it.  I am planning on using a fun wool suiting material I picked up with a fun accent fabric for Sophie.

Wednesday: Go To Patterns, Recess Raglan Tee

It’s Benny’s turn because I am going to make him this ever popular pattern from Go To Patterns.  Looks like a pretty easy sew and should be fun to mix and match some of my knits.  If I have time on Wednesday I am going to make one for Sophie too.

Thursday:  EmmylouBeeDoo, Bimaa Sweater

It is fair to say that I am quite obsessed with this pattern and almost missed out on it entirely because I nearly didn’t buy the Sew Fab bundle of patterns.  This pattern is one of the main reasons I bought it and since seeing so many other amazing versions on other blogs I am super excited to try it out, picture mustard and feathers.  Why doesn’t it come in adult sizes 🙂

Friday:  Blank Slate Patterns, Vintage V-Neck

I am going to finish out the week with another project for Benny.  This pattern looks great and with so many knits in my stash I should be able to come up with a fun combination for Ben.

So there you have it my plan for Kids Clothing Week.  Seem ambition?  I think this is going to be what I need to get into the habit of sewing more often and I am really excited to try all of these patterns out.  Hopefully some if not all of them will be ones I love making and can add them to the shop.

Check back every evening for a run down of how the day went and whether or not I got  my sewing done for the day.  If you want to keep up with me during the day follow me on twitter @thenestcreation #kidsclothesweek or instagram: @thenestcreations
