WILD THINGS ears

Hi everyone! It’s Sara again from Made by Sara. Miranda and Diana already shared a lot of cuteness in their posts on animal faces and animal (faux) fur, and today I am sharing with you some ideas on how to add some lovely animal ears to your kids clothes and accessories!

Clothes

The most obvious way to add ears to your kids clothes is to make it on hoods right? Right. But there are some other cute ways of adding ears!

7. Animal sleeves made by Suburbia Soup, with tutorial;

8. Cape with ears by Les Zigouis, pattern suggestion to get the look: the cape pattern from “Little Things To Sew” book by Oliver + S.

 

Accessories

I just love accessories, both for my kids and for myself. They can add that special touch to a simple outfit and make our kids look like they are straight out from a high-end brand catalog. Not to say that every kid loves animals and would certainly be jumping up and down with excitement when given the chance to go to school with any of these options. (And who can blame them really?)

Patterns

Some of the options above require you to use your crafty juices and draft your own ear add-on, but for those who don’t feel so adventurous there are some PDF patterns that already have animal ears so all you need to do is follow the pattern and instructions and you will be able to make something fun!

I can’t wait for Kids Clothes Week! It’s less than two weeks from today! (Yay!) I already have (too) many projects piling up on my cutting table, inspired by all these KCW contributor’s posts. I only wish days could have 48 hours on that week… I am always a bit ambitious on every KCW (and I bet I am not the only one, right?), so let’s see what I can come up with this season.

What are your plans for this KCW? Are you already choosing fabrics and printing patterns?

    Now I have an overwhelming urge to make pants with a bunny face on the bum. I might need to sew for a friend expecting a baby soon! I am super excited for KCW. I have purchased some fabric, printed a few patterns, and traced a paper one. I think my next sewing day will involve taping together some printed patterns.
