Kids Clothes Week Challenge- Day 4 & 5

Since I’m a bit obsessive, I really like to make one thing every day of the KCWC… But life got in the way this time. So on Day 4 I cut and on Day 5 I put it all together.

Yep, you guessed it. Another pair of pants!!

Again, I guess Dana’s pants pattern. Only this time, I printed it the right size and wahlaaaaa… The pants fit! I used my own pocket patterns on the front and back. As soon as he put them on, he was looking for his ‘little guys’ to put in his pockets!

This pair I made out of old sheets. The pattern looked really big, but when I held it up to his current pants they seemed to match. Even so I was still a little hesitant about the sizing, so I decided to not cut the fabric I had bought and to just use the old sheets I had lying around. It’s getting cool around here, so I knew one layer wasn’t enough so I lined them. I debated with the strip on the outside or the inside… But the stripe seemed almost a little too PJ’s lookin’.

Now that I have the pattern sized correctly, it doesn’t fit on my other pants that I wanted to upcycle… But between myself and my husband, I think we came up with an idea…  Stay tuned!

And as you can see we headed out to the Pumpkin Patch yesterday! It was a great day with the family! And absolutely no sewing was even thought of for KCWC Day 6. Maybe I can make something today for Day 7. I still have tons of projects for the kiddo…..

Kids Clothes Week Challenge Day 2

Jeans. I went with the jeans project for Day 2. Recycled jeans, that is. I started with a pattern, made by yours truly, from another pair of pants. Then cut the pieces from an old pair of my jeans. Using this tutorial from CookCleanCraft , ta da…..

And a couple other pics, before I move on to the Day 3 Project…

This whole challenge is beginning to have a theme… Recycled. Table runner to pillowcase dress, Mama’s jeans to Max jeans, and tonight Baseball cap to t-shirt….  I was thinking today about the things I need to go to the fabric store for. Then I remembered a bag of Daddy’s clothes piling up for Goodwill. Well, tonight I raided that bag, and I don’t think I have to go to the fabric store!! 🙂 We’ll see what the rest of the week brings us…
