Kids Clothes Week Day 1


The rules are pretty simple.  Spend an hour a day making clothes for kids for a week.  

This week couldnt have come at a better time for me, with one boys birthday coming up this weekend and the other boys the follwing weekend.

Last night was spent making two pairs of shorts for Alfie
(apologies for the terrible pics)


These are a little big but I figure at the rate this child grows they will be fitting him by the start of summer



I am not altogether happy with the way these turned out.  All my own doing however.  They were a bit too rushed and I used flannel for the pocket lining and the back pockets which was just too bulky.  It just happened to be the only dinosaur fabric I had and at the moment, if we want Alfie to wear something, it pretty much must have a dinosaur on it somewhere


I also hate the round pockets.  I'm not sure what I was thinking with that one.  Oh well, we learn from our mistakes right?

If your kids are anything like Elijah they will love anything that Mum makes! I have a pile of WIPs to stitch today - some basic shorts I started in 2008 would you believe - thank goodness E is slim! E can be funny with his tshirts - he likes to have numbers like a race car (oh the weird things kids pick up!) You're off to a great start :)
