Another Kid’s Clothes Week as come and gone. This season we were just a couple shy of 500 participants! 500 people sewing a bit each day and some much more than a bit! Look at all these amazing clothes that were made by committing to sewing each day for a week.

I know it’s impossible to keep up this frenetic pace, but for a few weeks a year it’s fun to sew like crazy. And you did: shorts and tops, dresses and pants, and hey why not sew an octopus tutu?! The theme was WILD THINGS after all. I love how you interpreted the theme this season. Some of you went in a tame direction with subtle prints or simple stencils. Others went full on wild with animal print everything or, again because it’s so awesome, an octopus tutu!

If you sat back on your laurels this season, I hope you will join us next time!

We’ve got cute kids that we made, cute clothes we made for them, and a giant pile of laundry that they made for us.

Happy KCW!!

    It was so much fun to sew along and see what others have made. I tried new techniques, found new blogs to follow, and add some new independent patterns to my must make list. It was so very much fun. Thanks!
