If there is a chill in the air you might sense it’s near. If you receive our newsletter then you already know: the new season of Kid’s Clothes Week is here! The official challenge week this season is October 20-26, 2014. Plenty of time to stare at fabric, pick out some patterns, and make a plan of attack! Before the challenge week, we will have heaps of inspiration, some fantastic giveaways, and even a tutorial or two.
The theme for this season is STORYBOOK. With school back in session and the weather turning crisp and cool, we thought it would be the perfect time to cozy up with a book–and maybe discover some sewing inspiration along the way. We read so many books to our kids and so many of them are works of art. Why not look a little closer at your favorite? Is there a color combination that you are drawn to? Maybe a pattern you hadn’t noticed before? Or maybe the illustrator draws great clothes you want to copy flat out. Pick up a book and see where it takes you!
As always, you don’t need to work with the theme if you don’t care to. If you do use the theme and it takes you in a crazy direction, all the better! There is only one rule for KCW: sew 1 hour a day for 7 days. Are you ready?! Well then why not make it official? Click here to sign up for the OCT. 2014 season. After you sign up, grab a button to put on your blog, or Facebook, or Intstagram. We have some extra-large versions of the 3 bears button and the 3 pigs button for you to put in a post on your blog, or print out for your sewing room!
