The last day of Kids Clothing Week Challenge what a relief, but what a challenge and inspiration it has been! Thanks very much to Meg at Elsie Marley for her organisation and inspiration.
So today I’ve not done a lot, Tobi found time to take some photo’s, even better was the fact that we had a compliant child willing to be dressed in Big Butt Baby Pants! And yes he is wearing washable nappies this time!
I think I got the length just about right and the hems are quite deep so I’m anticipating them doing for next summer too! By which time I hope he will be out of nappies altogether and have a cute little butt to put in them!
A photo to show how big that butt is! Good job I reinforced the seam around the bottom!
And a bit of a stretch, he also had great fun with the pockets, a hairbrush and spoon went into them so maybe not such a crazy idea!
A close-up of the bicycle appliqué from yesterday:
So onto today’s sewing, I’d started a t-shirt appliqué for Bethan a few weeks ago, it was all in place just needed stitching, so I got on and did that this afternoon while they went out to the park. She had requested a dog and wanted it to be the same as the ones I did back here, so now there are three girls of varying sizes all with the same applique on their t-shirts! But, each t-shirt is a different colour so not to much for me to cope with!
That’s it KCWC is over! That is me done – well for tonight anyway! I’ve bought a dress pattern off Etsy today so I can make Bethan a summer dress. She has grown out of her favourite one that I bought 2 summers ago and has nothing that fits her for this year, I’ve got plenty of fabric but whether she’ll choose any of it is a different matter – we may have to go fabric shopping!
