Weekend Whims- Kids Clothes Week!

It’s coming!! Again!! Kids Clothes Week, the Spring Edition!


Next week! You in? I’m in!

And I have a long list! I wonder how much I can get done!! So here are some things I’m going to make that have already been done by others!


1. I bought the Surf Collection from Pattern Anthology and one thing on my list for the week is the Coastal Cargo shorts by Blank Slate Patterns for my son.

2. Sew Boy had a great idea of turning a men’s shirt into shorts! Shorts are also on my list….

3. Another project on my list is to make a jumper for a friend’s little guy. But I’m not a cutsie kinda romper gal… I love these overalls by Delia Creates as inspiration!

4. Tees. Even though my son has a drawer full of tees, I’m feeling the need to make more… Not sure why… But I love this tee by Cirque du BeBe using the Flashback Tee pattern.

5. There’s going to be a skirt in my mix! I think I’m using Dana’s simple skirt pattern…

6. In that Surf Collection I mentioned earlier… I also got the Boatneck Tee by Blank Slate Patterns. Love it. The kiddo is getting one of these! I love this striped version by The Train To Crazy.

7. Another men’s shirt reno! Feather’s Flights turned a men’s shirt in to a romper! Cute!

8. Love this short sleeved version of the Flashback Tee pattern by Sewing For Four.

9. And… The kiddo is getting new PJ’s. Love love love these neon ones by LBG Studio using the Winter PJ’s from Peek a Boo Patterns.  I think I’m going to try to do both, the winter and the summer pj’s.


OK, a peek into my list! Now what are you making?


Project Run and Play- Boys Style

OK, just a little warning… This week’s outfit is pretty silly! (And so is the model)PRP-BoysWk-Main-I'mFeelin'Crafty

Once again, I’m playing along with the Project Run and Play challenges. This week’s challenge is Boy’s Style! And we took that to be The Kiddo’s Style. Remember last week when my son got bummed when he saw his sweatshirt and it wasn’t red and blue and green and yellow and orange??? (The week we won the reader challenge???) Well, I promised that this week he would get his color! And he did!


We had fun wandering around the fabric store picking out all the colorful pieces we could find! He said he wanted stripes. So he got stripes.


And polka dots. Our last color that he said we needed was purple, so we decided to go with purple pockets. Then he wandered around and found this great purple polka dot fabric! I added the pockets and was excited to figure out how easy they are to add. I also realized how I want to do them next time!! I’ll show ya soon!


The pants are an adaptation of Dana’s Basic Kids Pants. I actually enlarged the pattern a little bit since I have a growing son, but kinda wish I hadn’t. I wanted them a little bit skinnier than they ended up. But all in all, it’s probably best that they ended up a little baggy. The kiddo seems to like the baggier, comfier fit!


And the shirt!!! I’m so excited! The shirt is pretty much my first try at knit that turned out pretty right on! This is actually a pretty stretchy knit, not really a t-shirt knit. Very stretchy…. But it worked! The pattern is Made by Rae’s Flashback  Skinny Tee pattern. And it takes no time! It took me longer that it should have, but only because I read every word of the instructions looking for all the tips on getting it right. Next time… Maybe an hour, if that long. It’s perfect!


You’ll be seeing more of the scarf with some other news I have coming… Hehehe… I know, on the seat of your chair, huh???


Unfortunately, this week was CRAZY. I totally overbooked myself on things to get done this week, so we didn’t exactly finish the outfit! There’s a red sweatshirt with matching light purple trim missing…. Soon!
