KCWC Day 5

On day 5 of the kids clothes week challenge I made Elora this little top. She chose the fabric and I drafted the pattern (the pattern needs a bit of tweaking but it's not too shabby!).

The blue floral print is a light weight cotton that came from my mom's stash and Elora chose this fabric for her baby brother. Not sure what that means, but I thought it was pretty sweet :)

It's a great little spring top and Elora loves it because she chose the fabric.

KCWC Days 3 and 4

I took advantage of Elora and I both being sick to finish up the rompers today. Being sick and having a sick toddler means lots of movies and no chores, right? Of course right. That means mama gets to sew! Here are the finished products!

Hounds tooth and monster reversible romper for Baby Boy

Elora's Paisley and Stripe reversible romper

I love these little dragon fly snaps, they are so fun!

Looking forward to starting on some more kid's clothes tomorrow. Now I better pull myself together and figure out what's for dinner! :)

KCWC: What I did on day 2

Yesterday was day 2 of elsie marie's kid's clothes week challenge. It's quite possible that I actually did work for an hour as the challenge suggests, but in my "stiff muscled, didn't sleep enough the night before, pregnant, sick, caring for a sick toddler, and trying to clean the house" state of mind, I didn't get much done. All I did was pin the pieces of my rompers together. I only had 8 pieces of fabric to pin for these two rompers, but I'm pretty sure that used up the whole hour.

The sewing is the easy part, so I'm really hoping I can tackle that today and move on to something new. I'd love to get more than just these rompers completed this week and I'm really hoping my body, mind, and toddler cooperate :) I hope to share this evening what I completed on this, day 3 of the challenge!

KCWC at Elsie Marie- Updated

Update on what I did yesterday: I got some pattern assembly and cutting done yesterday to make overalls/rompers for my two little ones (still can't believe I have TWO kids...yes, one is still waiting to be born, but he'll need clothes once he arrives!). I used this reversible romper pattern from Scientific Seamstress to make a romper for my newest nephew, born earlier this month. And decided that I should make one for my new little guy coming in August and might as well make one for Elora too. So, I assembled the pattern pieces and cut my fabric. 

I love the simplicity of this pattern. It turns out really cute and it's really quick.

Today I plan on sewing them both, but I have a lot of house work plus a sick toddler to take care of, hopefully I can get my one hour of sewing in!
