It’s the first day of Elsie Marley‘s Kids Clothing Week Challenge (or KCWC). If you’re unfamiliar with it, it simply challenges you to work for one hour each day for a week on making kids clothing. With two little ones, this is a great challenge for me. While I have not yet had a chance to sit down in front of the sewing machine (yet) today, I did have this little pj set I made a few weeks ago I haven’t yet shown you.
I made this set of pj’s for a friend’s little boy who just turned one! I made the set an 18 month size so he’d have a little room for growth. The top was made using Lil Blue Boo‘s t-shirt hoodie pattern (minus the hood).
For the pants I used another 18 month size pants that I dug out of the kids old clothes as a rough guide and just went from there. The pants are made from interlock knits and has an elastic waist. I did add a bit of contrast to the bottom cuff to match the top.
. . . And my favorite – I added a little color to the back at the butt.
The details: The guitar interlock knit is Groovy Guitar from Michael Miller (with the coordinating light blue and black). The dark blue knit in the pants is from my stash.
Are you joining in the KCWC?? What are you working on?
